SunBasics is an alfalfa hay-based pet guinea pig diet made in the USA and fortified with all the basic, essential vitamins guinea pigs need in an all-pellet diet. This formula is made with alfalfa, the ideal hay source of balanced fiber and protein that is recommended for young, pregnant, nursing mothers, or any other guinea pigs who need a higher protein intake than a timothy-based diet.
All-pellet formula prevents selective eating
Specifically formulated for guinea pigs with extra Vitamin C
Made with alfalfa hay, a natural grass hay high in both fiber and calcium
Fortified with vitamins and minerals all guinea pigs need
Amounts to feed will vary according to guinea pig's age; see recommendations below. Fresh, clean water and hay should be available at all times. Store unused feed sealed in a cool, dry place. Provide feed in a heavy feeding bowl.
Young guinea pigs (0 to 6 months old) should be fed up to 1/8 cup or as needed.
Adult guinea pigs (6 months + older) should be given 1/8 cup.
For juvenile, pregnant, or lactating guinea pigs, we recommend supplementing this diet with alfalfa hay.
We recommend timothy or orchard grass hay for all other healthy adult guinea pigs.
