Science Selective Guinea Pig Food
Selective Guinea Pig food is recommended by vets and provides a tasty balanced diet for guinea pigs with natural ingredients including dandelion and fennel.
It is high is fibre to help promote healthy teeth and tummies and has added vitamin C to help keep your guinea pigs in the very best of health. Selective also contains linseed, a particularly good source of omega 3, which helps to regulate coat shine, thickness and colour intensity, as well as supporting a healthy skin.
But it is what we don’t put in to Selective that is important too…
Have you checked the label on your guinea pig’s food lately? Take a look, because many guinea pig foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a guinea pig’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too.
Feeding Selective Guinea Pig food for the first time
If you are feeding Selective to your guinea pigs for the first time, make sure you change from one food to another, gradually over 10-14 days. At first, you should mix a small amount of Selective with your guinea pig’s current food, slowly decreasing the old diet, whilst gradually increasing the quantity of Selective. A sudden change in diet can cause digestive upsets – even when you are changing to a better quality diet – so take care!
If your guinea pigs are used to a sugary diet, you may find it takes them a while to change, but persevere as it will help to benefit your pets’ health in the long term.
And don’t forget fresh hay and water! Your guinea pigs should have an unlimited supply of both at all times, along with a small daily handful of yummy fresh greens – click here for a list of fresh treats that are suitable to feed your pet guinea pigs.
