Mazuri Timothy-Based Guinea Pig Food is a complete Timothy hay-based diet formulated to meet the nutritional requirements of guinea pigs during all life stages. Timothy hay-based pellets have lower protein and better mineral balance than alfalfa, and are high in fiber which promotes increased chewing activity. Mazuri Guinea Pig Food also contains probiotics to promote gastrointestinal health, flaxseed for healthy skin and coat and yucca schidigera as a natural flavoring agent.

Key Benefits
  • Timothy hay-based pellet has lower protein and better mineral balance than alfalfa, and probiotics help promote GI tract health
  • Nutritionally complete - no supplements needed! Packaged in a convenient resealable bag to help maintain freshness.
  • Stabilized vitamin C remains active longer than traditional vitamin C helping to avoid deficiencies which could lead to weight loss, ruffled fur, infections and other ailments
  • Flaxseed provides a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids to aid in skin and coat health. High fiber content promotes more chewing activity that prevents teeth from overgrowth
  • Trusted by zoo and veterinary professionals and made in the USA!

Feeding Instructions

Feed free choice to guinea pigs, along with plenty of fresh clean water. Supplemental food items may be provided but should not make up more than 20% of the total diet. Care should be taken to choose appropriate supplemental food items. Mature guinea pigs may benefit from higher fiber, lower protein food items (e.g., grass hay), while growing, gestating, or lactating guinea pigs may benefit from higher protein food items (e.g., alfalfa hay). Guinea pigs may be provided vegetables (predominantly dark leafy greens) and limited fruit (less than 5% of total intake) to provide enrichment.

Thoroughly wash feeding and watering bowls on a regular basis. It is always a good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling pets. This diet is not for human consumption.

    Oxbow is trash

    By MrJC on Dec 11, 2020

    I have a large amount of small animals 1 female chinchilla 2 female guinea pigs I had 2 Male Guinea pigs but 1 died NOT 1 of them like oxbow they would die from starvation before eating oxbow pellets tried all 3 tiers chinchillas cant have garden select even though oxbow makes it for chinchillas sometimes I wonder if oxbow lies about veterinarians because they're a rude an bad company when it comes to animals they sell to humans 1st day trying mazuri it's like I gave them lettuce or bell pepper

    Great product

    By Judy on Oct 9, 2020

    My only complaint is the price. Mazuri foods are awesome but a little pricy at Chewy. The convenience almost makes up for the price difference.

    Not a hit for my piggie

    By Chrissy on Feb 19, 2020

    I was told to get this brand of food for my guinea pig by a certain vet (whom I do not use anymore.) My piggie definitely did not like it. My new vet I now go to said most piggies either like Mazuri or they don't and mine definitely doesn't.

    Guinea pigs love it!

    By court on Mar 12, 2020

    I switched my guinea pigs from oxbow so I would only have to buy one kind of food instead of adult and youth food, and some of mine are picky. But they all love it!

    Awesome Food!

    By Igoblind22 on Feb 19, 2020

    My herd love these pellets! The 25lb option is so much more economical and I’m so thankful Chewy has the option for it!
