SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The optimized, balanced protein and stabilized vitamins also help nurture pregnant and lactating animals. Serve Essentials with Oxbow grass hays and treats for complete nutrition.

Essentials is a high-fiber, alfalfa-based diet fortified with nutrients essential for growing, pregnant and nursing guinea pigs. Growing guinea pigs require more protein, calcium and energy. Essentials provides an optimized balanced protein source, containing the amino acids required for the growth and health of your guinea pig.

Guinea pigs require daily supplementation with Vitamin C. Essentials includes Stay C-35, a stabilized form of Vitamin C with a 12 month shelf life. Each 1/8 cup of Essentials contains 22 mg. of Vitamin C. To guarantee adequate Vitamin C intake, be sure the animal is eating the appropriate amount of Essentials. If additional supplementation is needed, provide Oxbow’s GTN-50C chewable tablets.

Although Essentials is an excellent complete feed for guinea pigs, unlimited access to fresh grass hay should also be provided. Choose from Oxbow’s Western Timothy Hay, Orchard Grass Hay, Oat Hay or Brome Hay to provide additional natural fiber. Made from timothy grass meal, Essentials is specifically designed to meet the particular nutritional needs of adult guinea pigs. Adult nutritional needs are different than those of animals in the growth stage of life.
