Feeding Guinea Pigs the Correct Diet
85-90% of our Guinea Pigs' Diet Should be Hay
Feeding hay and fresh grass are really important. They are essential for dental health as rabbits' teeth continually grow and need wearing down. The indigestible fibre also helps to keep the guinea pig's gut moving.
Move Away From Muesli
When offered muesli style diets there is a potential risk that guinea pigs may select the high starch and sugary components of the food, leaving the higher fibre pieces. This is called selective feeding and can cause an unbalanced diet. Selective feeding may increase the risk of dental disease, obesity and other health problems.
Treats are Good for Emotional Health
Excel Nature Snacks can be fed in small amounts, left in housing or puzzle feeders to keep your guinea pigs occupied or sprinkled through feeding hay to encourage foraging. Treats should always be fed in moderation.

Remember that good quality hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your guinea pigs’ diet and should be available at all times. Guinea pigs should also be fed a small amount of leafy greens each day. Please talk to your vet for further information. If you are currently feeding a muesli style food to your guinea pigs you should gradually transfer your pets onto a hay and nugget based feeding plan over a period of between 14 and 28 days, by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of nuggets until they have completely replaced the mix. Always ensure you are monitoring your guinea pigs’ weight to ensure a healthy weight. Always ensure fresh clean water is available for your guinea pigs.

This is excellent food and all my guinea pigs over the years have thrived on it.
This type of food is perfect as it prevents selective feeding, where piggies just pick out the bits they prefer, usually the least healthy. With this there's no waste, and it's easy to see each day how much they are eating.
I hope you find this review helpful, thanks for reading.
My goodness, my girls absolutely love this! Before, they did not eat much of their old nuggets but they pretty much devour what I give them daily of this.
The nugget pieces are a lot smaller than usual, more grain sized. Not a that I mark that as a con, I think that’s one of the reasons they live this so much, it’s easier to eat.
I will definitely be ordering again!

Guinea pig food is the exception though. My two guinea pigs absolutely love this stuff and run to the bowl immediately when it goes in. They don't do this with shop brand stuff.
