Prevents selective feeding:
This mono-component food prevents selective feeding as every nugget tastes the same and contains the same nutritious formula ensuring your guinea pig receives a nutritionally balanced diet with every mouthful.
Guinea pig's should be fed twice a day, dividing their daily requirements into two meals, feeding morning and early evening.
Changing your guinea pig's diet:
Your guinea pig's diet should never be altered suddenly as abrupt changes could trigger digestive upsets, especially in baby or stressed guinea pigs (for example if they have moved to a new home). If you want to alter your guinea pig's diet, it is recommended that this change takes place gradually over a 7-10 day period. This can be done by mixing small quantities of the new food with their existing food and increasing the proportions until it is fully changed over.
