Cavy Cuisine is specifically formulated to meet the particular nutritional needs of adult guinea pigs.
Cavy Cuisine is specifically formulated to meet the particular nutritional needs of adult guinea pigs. Its pellets are made with timothy grass meal which provides a lower level of protein, calories, and calcium than traditional alfalfa pellets. Cavy Cuisine's optimal calcium to phosphorus ratio also helps maintain a healthy urinary system. Pellets provide balanced nutrition in every bite and prevent selective feeding behaviors. Cavy Cuisine contains a stabilized form of vitamin C, which guinea pigs require daily.
