So Tesco had a bag of guinea pig muesli which was just your standard bag of food. Exactly the same as in a pet shop. But I noticed that they now have a bag of pellets which I got and decided to try out. Has anyone else seen this and do you think that it will be a good meal for them. The ingrediants seem normal. It is also handy because it is much cheaper then Burgess.

We don't have an Asda here in Ireland. But I imagine the two brands are similar.

Thanks for this... they only had the Muesli one last time I looked, so I'll look again next time I'm there.

Did your piggies like it?

I was in Tesco earlier, they had both muesli and pellets for piggies and buns, the pellets were £2.60 for pig and rabbit. ;)

That's for a 2kg bag, I usually pay £42 for two 10kg bags of Burgess excel for the tribe, the same amount in Tesco is only going to cost me £26, so that's a substantial saving provided they will eat it. The buns will eat the pellets, that I do know as I recently took part in a trial for the pellets and the buns gobbled them down, in fact Rebel and Lola jumped into the food bowl too, :))

Sorry I'm not sure. I throw away the bag and put it in a cereal container but I can check the next time.
