  • My Boys Love It

    By on

    I bought this food after experiencing the difference in quality for another of my animal’s (rats) food. When I opened the bag, I noticed the difference from their old brand, right away. The pellets were much greener, smaller, and had less “filler.” Looks aren’t everything and so I was sceptical until the “taste test” was done. I have three very happy piggies on my hands. We’re never going back to the old brand!

  • Oxbow is #1

    By on

    The 25lb bag generally lasts us about 3.5 months per bag. My piggies LOVE Oxbow anything, but the pellets are what make them start wheeking and popcorning around first thing in the morning. It's the cutest thing! The other thing I noticed, with this brand specifically, is that they eat it all up. I don't find loose bits on the floor of their pen like other brands I've had to use temporarily. They don't waste it.

  • Food for my babies at a great price

    By on

    I finally decided to try and get guinea pig food on chewy and so happy I did! I wasn't looking at the sizing only the price. It was cheaper then the stores so I went for auto ship. It showed up and it is twice as big! Love that I won't be heading to the store for my 4 babies anymore! Love chewy

  • You won't BELIEVE the price!!!

    By on

    This bag of quality of guinea pig food is the absolute best price anywhere I could search. It is a secure bag allowing me to pour some of the product into a plastic sealed container for easy distribution without having to always open the large bag. This keeps the large bag product fresh - I would think.

  • 100% recommend

    By on

    My piggies absolutely love this stuff! Through numerous tries with other brands they prefer Oxbow. They have never completely finished all of their pellets in one day until I started to use Oxbow. Now my one GP flips over their bowl as soon as he finishes his pellets, in attempts to get more food! I think the smell of the product is rather pleasant compared to the other pellets I have used. I love this product

  • It's OK guinea pig food

    By on

    I have a very spoiled GP..so I don't think this should be taken as a regular review. He's never eaten any kind of GP food entirely. He picks through it. But since this is all one kind he will eat it OK if I mix it with another mixed blend. I won't buy it again though

  • Best pellets

    By on

    These pellets were recommend by my veteranian. 2 of my guinea pigs love them my other guinea pig not too much. I do add papaya treats over it and put vitamin c drops/multi vitamin drops on the papaya to attract them to their pellets. I would recommend.

  • Great quality

    Oxbow is the best! My piggy’s were on the infant pellets and have just transitioned to the adult pellets with no change or selective eating problems. I love that the bad is resealable so the pellets stay fresh! Thanks chewy!

  • Excellent product!!!

    By on

    This product is one of the best by far! I have my 7 guinea pig children and a rabbit baby as well. They all love this brand! It's such a great product that the look and even smell is better. My babies were on Kaytee before and it just looks processed with the bad for them colored bits as well. Don't even get me started on the smell!! But this food looks all natural and has almost no scent!! I love it so much!! Thank you Oxbow for having such a great product and thank you Chewy.com for carrying at such an affordable price and excellent service!!

    Our guinea has always eaten Oxbow, and has never had any health issues. This is the first time we ordered his food online from Chewy, as the price and fast, free home delivery was too good to pass up. Good job Chewy !
