Vet Recommended Herbivore Feed Products

Oxbow's products are used and recommended by top exotic animal veterinarians across Australia and around the globe.
Did you know that to stay healthy, guinea pigs must have a daily dietary source of vitamin C? And in times of illness or stress, their need for vitamin C increases substantially. So ensuring this element of their diet is a critical issue. That's why the expiry date on Oxbow's pellets is very important. Vitamin levels diminish over time, so if your feed product doesn't have an expiry date, how can you know if the vitamin levels are still meeting their requirements?
Essentials Young Guinea Pig Food
(aka Cavy Performance)
1 x 2.25 kg bag of fortified Oxbow pellets, designed to meet the nutritional needs of GROWING guinea pigs (under 6 months). Super high fibre pellets with stabilised vitamin C
Young Guinea Pig Food is also a great option for lactating (nursing) and gestating (pregnant) guinea pigs. And older pigs that have trouble maintaining weight.
Always be sure to read the feeding instructions and recommended transition diet guidelines on the bag when it arrives.
We recommend a diet that includes: 75% hay(for fibre, nutrients and grinding down those constantly growing teeth), measured amounts of high quality Oxbow pellets (for fibre, nutrients and vitamins) and a limited amount of appropriate greens/herbs/veggies.
