Bunny Guinea PigDream Basic 1.5 kg Guinea Pig Food
Guinea pigs are originally from South America. In the wild they live on many different plants. like rabbits, chinchillas and degus, they are specialized in consuming green plants. We have thoroughly researched what guinea pigs in the wild have on their menu and incorporated it into their basic food. In addition to the many valuable raw materials, the South American plants of the CaviaDroom products form the optimal basic food.
FROM THE AGE OF 5 MONTHS
Bunny CaviaDroom Basic is a complete food 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.
"This food is suitable for diabetes-prone guinea pigs"
The composition is optimally adapted to the natural nutritional needs of guinea pigs. The ingredients present are based on the natural environment of guinea pigs. Bunny has really looked at the original diet of guinea pigs as it is in the natural.

42 different plants from untreated meadows
- Higher proportion of stabilized vitamin C
Long-life vitamin C - for the complete and permanent supply
- Balanced Long-Life Recipe
All components are important and correctly dosed
3 different fiber lengths for rubbing the teeth and a healthy intestinal flora

Nutritional advice Bunny Guinea Pig Dream
Fill the food bowl with CaviaDroom BASIC and wait until all the food has been eaten before filling it again. Provide high-quality bunny hay and fresh, lukewarm water daily. At the age of 5, switch to CaviaDroom SENIOR.
The Bunny Nature Happiness Formula
Happiness starts with the right, balanced diet. That's the starting point. Rodents that are fed a balanced diet are happy and healthy. And rodents that don't have to worry about their next meal are especially happy and healthy. Which brings us straight to the Bunny Nature happiness 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 available to the animals ad libitum. so they can always fulfill their needs without overeating or becoming 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 of course that happens without the use of preservatives, flavor enhancers, added sugars, colorings & aromas.
Bunny about Guinea pigs
Guinea pigs are small, folivorous/herbivorous (plant-eating) mammals and belong to the order of 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 should be kept with at least one of their conspecifics. 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 burrow, but create roads and hollows in dense vegetation. To absorb 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 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 uncontrollably
b) the choice of feed is an important factor for the 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 food to the next part of the intestine. The following food portions take over that task. The species-specific feed must be adapted to the energy needs of adult guinea pigs and the needs of growing animals when providing 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 formed that are reabsorbed by guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs cannot make their own vitamin C. When added 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 about 10 mg per kilogram of body weight
Guinea pig Calcium requirement
Calcium is an important mineral. In the body, calcium is mainly found in the bones and teeth. The supply of calcium through 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 stones or even bladder stones. Unfortunately, that is no longer a rarity. That is why choosing 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 level of calcium compared to adult guinea pigs due to their unfinished growth.
Raw Fiber for Guinea Pigs
Crude fiber: Crude fiber is 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 to a limited extent.
A shift in the ratio of raw fiber to starch can lead to long-term health damage:
- Too little raw fiber leads to intestinal inertia, changes in the intestinal flora and disturbed functioning of the cecum.
- Too much starch leads to eating pauses, changes in the intestinal flora, swelling, diarrhoea, fermentation, obesity.
When you take these arguments into account, it becomes clear why the vet recommends a minimum crude fiber to starch ratio of 3:1.
How do I know how much starch my food contains?
In addition, the composition is very useful: 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.
