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.

New look, same great formula! This product has recently undergone a packaging change. Customers may receive old packaging during this transition.

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.

Award-Winning, Certified Organic Food

Translated as "good earth," Bene Terra fortified food and treats gives rabbits and guinea pigs the nutrition these animals would find in their natural environment. More than 95% of the ingredients are certified organic, including high-fiber hay plus blueberries and cranberries, which are rich in antioxidants.

    Ok but giving a great review

    My name is Mr Piggy Smalls. I am a year-and-a-half-old rescued Guinea pig. My mother says I am her soulmate. She treats me like a king. She keeps buying me stuff from chewy and I have to say I'm very happy with her choices. I was eating crappy food when my mother decided to order me some good stuff. I actually loved it so much that I started eating it more than I ate my carrots. That's a big deal. So my mother said she was so happy with chewy that she got on Facebook and was telling everybody how quickly she got her delivery and how wonderful the products were. So now she is on chewys website looking for more stuff to buy for me and my five siblings (whom are dogs and cats by the way.)My mom My name is Mr Piggy Smalls.

    The Best Food

    By on

    Oxbow makes the best pellets for guinea pigs. I love how the brand offers so many options, but this one is my guinea pigs' favorite. They won't touch anything else. It doesn't contain filler ingredients or the extra seeds and such that other brands put in their food. Plus, it's all natural and organic so I have the peace of mind that they are eating quality food. The pellets are also a good size. They aren't as big as other brands so they are easier for my guinea pigs to consume.

    I've tried Oxbow feed in the past for Guinea Pigs and they wouldn't take a bit. The two I have now love it this organic feed.

    good food overall

    By on

    this is great because it has no dehydrated alfalfa meal in it. my guinea pig has extreme sensitivity to calcium and likes food with goodies in it such as dried bay leaves (he loves them, but we didn’t realize that they’re 83% calcium so we had to stop giving them to him). we thought this food would be good for him since it’s supposed to be blueberry flavored, but he doesn’t like it.

    A great product for organic.

    By on

    This was a good quality Guinea pellet food. My Guineas eat it, but they really like the Zupreeme the best. This is top fresh but for some reason they didn't eat it as good as the others. The organic seems to be too much of hay or something in it my guineas didn't like. They ate it but not as well as others.

    my piggies love it

    I have two guinea pigs, and they love Oxbow’s organic pellets. I’m happy with the ingredients, and they’re happy with the taste. It’s more expensive than Essentials, but the ingredients are much better. Only the best for my girls!
