Description

Feed your Guinea Pig a diet made from the same wholesome, organic ingredients he'd find in his natural habitat with Oxbow Organic Adult Guinea Pig Food. Unlike other animals, Guinea Pigs do not produce Vitamin C themselves and need it supplied through their diet. They also need hay to aid in digestion and keep their teeth trim. Oxbow Organic Adult Guinea Pig Food is fortified with stabilized Vitamin C and contains a wholesome combination of organic ingredients including high-fiber grass hay and other nutrients he'd find in nature.

Key Benefits
  • Specially formulated to mirror a Guinea Pig's natural diet. This will ensure that your pet lives a healthy lifestyle.
  • Fortified with stabilized Vitamin C, help ensure that your pet's immunity system is in tip-top shape.
  • Includes high-fiber grass hay that promotes healthy gastrointestinal health.
  • 75% of your guinea pig’s diet should be grass hay and Organic Guinea Pig is not intended for growing, gestating or lactating guinea pigs.
  • The USDA Organic Seal on this product indicates that over 95% of the ingredients in this product are produced by certified organic farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.

FAQ

What is a herbivore?

Herbivores are animals that eat only plants. This includes hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, chinchillas and other common small animal pets.

Why does a herbivore need hay?

Feeding hay to an herbivore is not an option; it is a necessity. A high quality grass hay should be available at all times. Hay not only provides the roughage essential to maintaining proper teeth wear, but it is vital to maintaining a healthy, functioning gastrointestinal system. They need a diet high in fiber and low in carbohydrates to prevent diarrhea and other digestive complications.

    Different from oxbow regular pellets

    By on

    For some reason, I was expecting these to look just like regular oxbow pellets. They are wider and smell a little different. It took my heard a few days to get used to them. They seem to like them now. My suggestion would be to mix them with your piggies’ usual Oxbow pellets for the first few days.

    My boy loves these pellets

    By on

    I was concerned about them containing blueberries, Causr my jax dosent like blueberries, But he gobbled these pellets up. They do seem to a little larger pellet size compared to the regular oxbow pellets, Which is good. less broken bits. These pellets smell very fresh and fragrant. Just wish they came in larger sized bags 3lb is a lil expensive for $11. Also shipping was super fast. Came in 2 days!

    Great and healthy food

    By on

    This is the only pellet food we feed our guinea pigs. We love that it is organic as we try and feed them everything organic. They all seem to love this and gobble it up. It's gone out of stock with manufacturer sometimes which is frustrating but it's definitely our #1 go to pellet food for our guinea pigs.

    Great Food for Your Piggy

    By on

    My guinea pig loved this food from the start. Before I started purchasing from Chewy, I would buy her food at a local pet store and half the time it was so difficult to even find them stocked on the shelf. I had to switch up her food one of those times I couldn't find the Oxbow organic and she wanted nothing to do with the new food I bought her. Thank God for Chewy! I was able to purchase this food on a regular basis and she was very happy. She would squeal with happiness when she knew it was time to eat. Jessie has passed but she did live a long life (in guinea pig standards) and I'm sure a lot of it had to do with her diet.
