Description

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.

    By GSPMommy on Jul 5, 2021

    I rescued 3 Guinea pigs going 3 yrs from a horrible home , at the time the it was over 15 yrs since we had guinea pigs so I had no supplies , so I contacted a guinea pig rescue & on the rescue's website they feed all their pigs Mazuri , I never heard of this brand of food so I went on chewy & they had it so I ordered it . It took the pigs I rescued 3 months to eat pellets & hay , which they were never fed , they lived on cat food & carrots & ice berg lettuce before I rescued them . I feel this food was the key to get them healthy & now it is what is keeping them healthy , except for the fresh fruit & hay & kale they get every day , they only get 1/4 cup of pellets a day each , They are so healthy I rescued 3 Guinea pigs going 3 yrs from a horrible home , at the time the it was over 15 yrs since we had guinea pigs so I had no supplies , so I contacted a guinea pig rescue & on the rescue's website they feed all their pigs Mazuri , I never heard of this brand of food so I went on chewy & they had it so I ordered it .

    Great product

    By JudyS 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.
