please vote on which guinea pig nuggets you/ your guinea pigs think are the best as i'm considering switching to something different as it becoming far too costly and my piggies don't even seem to keen on it ....
please consider the cost, how healthy they are, and how much your piggies like them
if you've got anything else to add please feel free to comment especially if you chose 'other'
thanks for voting!

I started with a PaH fruity nugget, but I didn't like the idea of them. Picked up the Tesco ones when I was shopping, and they love them. I checked, and they rate fairly highly for nutrition and cost, so I've just stuck with them.

I had to switch recently as I was nearly out of Burgess Excel and my local shop had also run out but they had Harrington's Optimum Guinea Pig on offer so I got a bag. I haven't looked at the chart to see if it's a good one or not and I'm not sure yet if I will go back to Burgess but the pigs like this one just as much and one thing I do prefer is the nuggets are much smaller which is easier for the babies.

I'm located in the US, and we use KMS Hayloft Timothy choice pellets. Seriously, my guinea pigs scream the longest and loudest for these pellets over anything else we provide them! I think the pellets smell delicious and fresh as well! Just amazingly high quality.

@PiggieNinja Which nuggets do you feed now? If you find your current ones too costly then we can try to suggest some that are cheaper :)

Oh, although my boys adore Science Selective I try to warn people off them as they got stuck on one of my boys teeth.

Well currently I feed Harringtons in the morning and rosewood meadow menu in the evening. They adore the Harringtons but it puts me off because they swell in water and I can't imagine that's great for them. But the meadow menu is really healthy but way too expensive really , plus they're really not keen.
Then my new piggie (hooray!) Has come with a bag of burgess excel and it smells really good and my others also seem to love it , plus it's much cheaper than the rosewpod one ( plus the advertising caught me when it said 90% -or something- vets recomend burgess) So I'm thinking of changing to that but I thought Id get a wider opinion :)

My piggies' favourite is JR farm grainless. It's very very similar to the Rosewood Meadow Menu stuff (which they also get, along with VL), but smells (and presumably tastes) slightly different.

My pigs love the Asda nuggets, I always get empty bowls. Plus they're only £2 for a 2kg bag. ;)

I swapped ours over from Harringtons to the Rosewood Natures Menu and they have absolutely loved it, not a single piece gets wasted and I love the ingredients in it and that its not full of grain fillers.

My piggies love oxbow pellets, they are timothy hay based.

I love the Rosewood meadow menu pellets.
I made a video all about pellets for guinea pigs
I have a YouTube channel about guinea pig, rabbit, dogs and hamsters.
