How long will a 10-lb bag last with one adult guinea pig?
Answer by ChewyDec 30, 2020
The longevity of this food will vary based on your individual guinea pig's eating habits.

I have 5 adult guineas and 4 pups (3 mos). I just bought the 25 lb version of this brand. Should I still buy a small bag of young pup food until the pups officially hit 6 mos? Will they still have proper nutrition for overall development.
Answer by ChewyDec 22, 2017
Adult Guinea Pigs have different nutritional needs than juveniles. They still need a diet high in fiber to keep their digestive systems working properly and Vitamin C, but they need lower levels of calcium, protein and calories than growing Guineas require. This recipe is specifically designed to meet the particular nutritional needs of Guinea Pigs over six months.
