Bunny Guinea PigDream Basic 1,5 kg
Guinea pigs are originally from South America. They live in many different plants in the wild. they are just like rabbits, chinchillas and degus, specialized in the consumption of green plants. We have thoroughly researched what guinea pigs in the wild have on their menu and have incorporated them into their basic feed. In addition to the many valuable raw materials, the South American plants of the CaviaDroom products are the optimal basic feed.
VaNaF THE AGE OF 5 MARKS
Bunny Guinea PigDream Basic is a complete diet for guinea pigs from the age of 5 months. The nutritional needs of guinea pigs and the latest scientific research were central to the development of Bunny CaviaDroom Basic.

Being happy starts with the right, balanced diet. That is the starting point. Rodents that receive tailored nutrition are happy and healthy. And rodents that do not have to worry about their next meal are particularly happy and healthy. That brings us immediately to the Bunny Nature formula. The Bunny recipes are always based on the absolute interests of the rodents. Bunny knows that for nutritional reasons it is necessary to make the feed ad libitum available for the animals. that way they can meet their needs every time without being overeaten or overweight. With its unique bunny recipes, Bunny Nature offers optimally balanced feed, the highest quality ingredients and a particularly controlled production ... to cover the nutritional needs of your rodent. as nature shows us. And that happens naturally without the use of preservatives, flavor enhancers, added sugars, dyes & flavors.
Bunny about guinea pigs
Guinea pigs are small, folivorous / herbivorous (herbivorous) mammals and belong to the order of the rodents. They are mainly active at dusk and at night, very sociable and live in nature in social groups. Even if they are kept as pets, they must be kept together with at least one of their own kind. Guinea pigs have a life expectancy of about 6 to 8 years and achieve a body length of about 30 cm and a weight of 450 to 1,000 g.
Guinea pigs originate from South America and have spread from Colombia to Argentina. They do not build their own holes, but create roads and cavities in dense vegetation. In order to include nutrition, they prefer to choose areas with low vegetation. There they find mainly grasses that contain many important nutrients.
Guinea pigs have very specific nutritional needs. Especially the digestive system is important for a healthy and vital life.
There are two incisors in the upper and lower jaws, which, like the molars, continue to grow for life. That means:
a) the position of the teeth must be correct so that tooth wear is possible and the teeth do not grow uncontrolled
b) the choice of feed is an important factor for the optimum wear of the incisors and molars. A high fiber content is necessary!
The guinea pig stomach
The stomach is a so-called full-stomach stomach. Their stomach is not muscular and therefore can not transport the food knit to the next part of the bowel. The following food portions take over this task. The type-specific feed must be matched to the energy needs of adult guinea pigs and the needs of growing animals with optimal nutrition.
The blind bowel
The large cecum is the so-called yeast chamber. The fine dietary fibers go there, which are converted into proteins, vitamin B complex and vitamin K by special bacteria. This is where the bowel cocks are born that are taken back by guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs can not make vitamin C themselves. At an addition via drinking water, vitamin C is quickly broken down under the influence of light and oxygen. Administration of stabilized vitamin C via the feed is therefore vital. The daily requirement of an adult guinea pig is about 10 mg per kilogram of body weight
Guinea pig Calcium need
Calcium is an important mineral. In the body calcium is mainly in the bones and teeth. The calcium supply via food is therefore very important to keep the animal healthy.
It is true that an increased calcium level in adult guinea pigs can lead to bladder dust or even to bladder stones. Unfortunately, that is no longer a rarity. That is why the choice of the right components is important.
- Optimal calcium content in the basic feed
young animals: 0.9% *
- adult animals: 0.6%
* Young animals need a higher calcium level due to their unfinished growth compared to adult guinea pigs.
Raw fibers for guinea pigs
Raw fibers: Raw fibers are very important for health. They support the digestion, the cecum and with their rough fiber structure the tooth wear.
Starch: Starch is mainly an energy supplier and must be present in the feed.
A shift in the ratio of crude fiber starch can lead to health damage in the long term:
- Too little raw fiber leads to intestinal inertia, change of the intestinal flora and impaired functioning of the cecum.
- Too much starch leads to food breaks, changes in intestinal flora, swelling, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity.
If you take these arguments into account, then it becomes clear why the vet recommends at least a crude fiber-starch ratio of 3: 1.
How do I know how much starch my food contains?
The composition is very useful here: whole grains (with starchy flour), field beans, potatoes or peas are an indication that a higher starch content must be taken into account.
