Sherwood Adult Guinea Pig Food
Grain & Soy-Free, and formulated with premium Timothy Hay, whole natural oil seeds (with flax seed), chelated minerals, and shelf-stable vitamin C to promote proper digestion and a shiny fur coat!
Sherwood’s unique formula uses alfalfa (instead of the commonly used soybean meal) because it is a more natural, healthier and balanced source of protein that guinea pigs are adapted to. It is blended with premium grass hay and fortified with additional nutrients. Veterinarians agree that this diet is superior to the grain/soy based diets on the market today.
By the time piggies reach about 14 weeks of age they are "teenagers" and need to switch to a diet that is lower in energy and fortified with specific nutrients. This helps them mature without getting fat. In fact it will help them stay trim and active and you'll know that they are healthy on the inside because you'll see the difference in the quality of their fur coat on the outside! Your piggie will live a healthier and ‘hoppier’ life.

For guinea pigs that don’t eat enough loose hay (at least 50% of the diet by weight) this hay-based, grain/soy-free food provides the additional hay they need. It is a balanced, fortified and complete food low in calories that contains additional Timothy hay to provide correct amounts of long-strand fiber for proper digestive health. As a result guinea pigs will regulate their own food intake. It will also help overweight guinea pigs shed excess body fat and help underweight guinea pigs gain healthy weight and improved muscle tone by supplying a proper balance of the essential nutrients needed for optimal health.Caution: Store food in a dark and dry location.
