Bunny Guinea Pig Dream Basic 1.5 kg
Guinea pigs are native to South America. In the wild they live on many different plants. like rabbits, chinchillas and degus, they specialize in consuming green plants. We have thoroughly researched what guinea pigs have on their menu in the wild and processed it in their basic food. In addition to the many valuable raw materials, the South American plants of the CaviaDroom products form the optimal basic feed.

And rodents that don't have to worry about their next meal are extremely happy and healthy. That immediately brings us to the Bunny Nature happiness formula. The Bunny recipes is always based on the absolute interests of the rodents. Bunny knows that for nutritional reasons it is necessary to make the food available ad libitum for the animals. this way they can meet their needs every time without overeating or becoming overweight. With the unique bunny recipes, Bunny Nature offers optimally balanced food, the highest quality ingredients and a particularly controlled production ... to cover the nutritional needs of your rodent. as nature shows us.

Bunny about Guinea Pigs
Guinea pigs are small, folivorous / herbivorous (herbivorous) mammals and belong to the rodent order. They are mainly active at dusk and at night, very sociable and live in social groups in nature. Even if they are kept as pets, they should be kept with at least one of their congeners. Guinea pigs have a life expectancy of about 6 to 8 years and reach a body length of about 30 cm and a weight of 450 to 1,000 g.
Guinea pigs are native to South America and have spread from Colombia to Argentina. They do not build their own hole, but create roads and hollows in dense vegetation. To take in nutrition, they prefer to choose areas with low vegetation. There they mainly find grasses that contain many important nutrients.
Guinea pigs have their own nutritional needs. The digestive system is especially important for a healthy and vital life.
Guinea Pig Teeth
There are two incisors in the upper and lower jaw, 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 out of control
b) the choice of feed is an important factor for optimal wear of the incisors and molars. A high fiber content is necessary!
The Guinea Pig Stomach
The stomach is a so-called full stomach. Their stomach is not very muscular and therefore cannot independently transport the nutritional knit to the next part of the intestine. The following food portions take over that task. The species-specific food must be tailored to the energy requirements of adult guinea pigs and the needs of growing animals with optimal nutrition.
The large cecum is the so-called fermentation chamber. This is where the fine dietary fibers go, which are converted into proteins, vitamin B complex and vitamin K by special bacteria. This is where the cecum droppings are created that are reabsorbed by guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs cannot produce vitamin C themselves. With an addition via the 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 approximately 10 mg per kilogram of body weight
Guinea pig Calcium requirement
Calcium is an important mineral. In the body, calcium is mainly located in the bones and teeth. The calcium supply through food is therefore very important to keep the animal healthy.
It is true that an increased calcium content in adult guinea pigs can lead to bladder stones or even bladder stones. Unfortunately, this 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 require a higher calcium content compared to adult guinea pigs due to their incomplete growth.
Crude fiber for Guinea pigs
Crude Fiber: Crude fiber is very important for health. They support digestion, the cecum and with their rough fiber structure, tooth wear.
Starch: Starch is mainly an energy supplier and must be limited in the feed.
A shift in the crude fiber-starch ratio can lead to health damage in the long term:
- Too little crude fiber leads to intestinal slowness, changes in the intestinal flora and impaired cecum function.
- Too much starch leads to eating breaks, changes in the intestinal flora, swelling, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity.
If you take these arguments into account, it becomes clear why the vet recommends a minimum crude fiber-starch ratio of 3: 1.
How do I actually know how much starch my food contains?
The composition is very useful here: whole grains (with starchy flour body), field beans, potatoes or peas are an indication that a higher starch content must be taken into account.

Grote harde brokken: ideaal knaagmateriaal voor de cavia. Ik vind dit enorm goed omdat die kleinere pellets een soort welvaartsbrokjes zijn, beetje kauwen en weg. Deze brokken dagen uit, ze moeten echt moeite doen en liggen er lang op te knauwen. Lekker vinden ze deze brokken ook nog.
