Folivore / herbivore = collective name for herbivorous animals, which specialize in herbs and leaves.

In nature degus eat grasses, herbs, bark, leaves, bushes and wood. Degus need a plant-based diet that is high in raw fiber and low in energy. In addition to good quality hay, the basic feed for degus must also be present indefinitely. A degu can also be fed fresh herbs, fresh grass or good quality fresh vegetables. However, this is not a basic need. Degus are predisposed to diabetes. Therefore, fruits and sugary vegetables should not be fed. If degus are fed too sugar and starchy, the animals can develop diabetes. The dietary needs of degus are somewhat comparable to those of rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas. They also need high raw fiber content. Different lengths of the fiber particles are important for the correct wear of the teeth, the loosening of the gastrointestinal filling, a good intestinal peristalsis and for the fermentation process in the blind intestine. For the degu that is kept as a pet, this means that the basic food for degus consists of high-quality hay and a low-energy, balanced, complete chunk. The chunk must contain all required nutrients, minerals, trace elements and vitamins. Both the hay and the chunk must be offered unlimited.

A degu's gastrointestinal tract is not that muscular. To keep the digestive system going, food must be replenished again and again. In order to avoid digestive disturbances, it is important that the animals can eat at any time. To prevent the animals from getting too fat, it is important to choose a diet that is adapted to the specific animal species.

Unfortunately, degus have a tendency to form urinary stones. When a degu permanently consumes more calcium than it needs, there is a danger of developing bladder stones. This can make the animals very sick. Once bladder stones have arisen, this can no longer be solved through nutrition. Treatment is only possible through surgery. However, a calcium deficiency is also dangerous. This can lead to dental and skeletal problems. It is therefore very important that the calcium content in the diet is specifically adapted for a degu. To prevent a calcium surplus, it is important to ensure a limited supply of calcium through the diet and to ensure an adequate supply of drinking water. Products with a high calcium concentration include parsley, dandelion and alfalfa. Since vitamin D3 is directly involved in the calcium metabolism, this must also be precisely adjusted in the diet. The calcium-phosphorus ratio must also be exactly right. It must be CA: P = 1.5: 1 to 2: 1.
