Hi Everyone

I have noticed over the last few weeks the boys have not been eating much of the Wagg Guinea Pig Crunch and just picking out the bits they like, so i got some tokens off for the PAH Nuggets so i went and got some.

Is it a good food for guineas?

Eric is on the nuggets and I've been advised by the store and the vet we saw the other day that they are the best as he can't choose what he eats and they contain lots of 'good for him' stuff!

They are a suppliment to the hay, fruit, veg and grass he eats but he loves them!

I will have a look at the ingredients for you in a bit.

But what they are is like a pellet with all of the vitmains and nutrients mixed in to one and they dont contain any colourings.

Nuggets are good as in they don't allow the guinea pig to do selective eating. As I have said in another post Vedra thinks the PAH Museli is really good so perhaps the nuggets are too?

On Monday, I went to PAH to get the guinea pigs some more Supa Guinea Excel. For a medium bag, the Supa is about £7.79 and the PAH Nuggets is about £4.50 oir something. I decided to get the 10kg weight bag as the pigs are going through so much food. The guinea pigs love the nuggets just as much as the suipa so might aswell save a bit of money so I can afford to get them other bits and pieces too! :D

How much food are you putting in the bowl?

I convert all the piggies who come to ARC onto Cavy cuisine, I cut the amount of their normal food right down to about a 1/3 of a bowl (for a pair of piggies) a day and then swap 10% with the new food, each day adding a little more of the new food and taking away the same amount of their old type food. If they are strugling to change, I stay with about 1/3 new mix and 2/3 old mix for a about 5 days and then continue slowly to change until I get completely changed. I believe the key is cutting the total amount of food right down after all most piggies are given too much dry food a day when compared to the recomended amount most companies suggest.
