Feeding Instructions

Feed your guinea pig ¼ to 1 cup of Sunburst per day depending on the age of your pet. Complement this feeding with unlimited amounts of hay. Always regulate the food portion to maintain your pet’s weight. A pregnant or lactating female will sometimes eat 2 to 3 times as much as a normal adult. Please note, the potency of the Vitamin C in our food will decrease if not stored properly. Remove and discard uneaten food everyday and clean the bowl prior to refilling it. Always maintain fresh drinking water near your pet’s food container.

Transition Instructions

While introducing a new food to your pet friend, gradually mix new food with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of food over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system.

    Not the results I wanted

    By on

    If you have a picky piggy like me then you understand how difficult it is to find food they’ll actually eat. I was expecting there to be more dried fruits & veggies than pellets but it wasn’t and my piggy gets tired of pellets fast. I have her a small sample pile in her play pen and even put one of her apple biscuits with it, she spit out everything she picked up and left it there.

    Not a primary diet

    By on

    Like most of the Higgins sunburst for small mammals (excluding hamsters) this food isn’t something that you’d want as your pet’s primary diet. We treat our pets to 1/4th cup Higgins sunburst every Saturday morning as a little treat, since it’s got the forage blend in with the pellets. They don’t tend to eat the actual pellets and tend to only eat the forage, but again, that’s why they only get this once a week.

    Amazing Product!

    By on

    I've been getting these pellets for my two guinea pigs for a long time, as they seem to enjoy them. I recommend getting these pellets! Chewy also got us these within a week. Because of all the coronavirus demands, I was surprised to get them as fast as we did!

    I tried, i was wrong

    By on

    Looking for a healthy nutritional food for my guinea pig for a while and I gave this a shot and uploaded photos to a group that is on my Facebook they informed me that this food is not good for him at all so I was really sad because it sounded amazing by the description they referred me to Oxbow which chewy has as well so that is now what I order for him!

    Our Guinea Pig loves this!

    By on

    We used to buy another brand but our little guy just loves this one, we will definitely be buying this in the future. It has so many extra seeds, fruits and snacks in it. Only problem is he's been eating it so well we keep having to refill his bowl!

    Hi! All 3 of my piggies love this food! Only problem is it only comes in 6 lb bag. I've already spoken to someone about that so hopefully you can start carrying 25lb bags... that would be AWESOME!!! Really love you guys... wouldn't buy from anyone else

    Picky loves it

    By on

    I have tried numerous guinea pig foods and no luck. She would just pick through them or just tip her bowl over. I tried this one and she absolutely loves it. It's a nice blend of everything she needs.

    Guinea pig approved

    I have a very picky guinea pig. This is the only good she will eat. No more dodging food as she flings it out of the cage.
