Guinea Pigs are Fibrevores and require a blend of the two key fibres in order to maintain a healthy digestive system:
Digestible Fibre - the essential source of nutrients to keep your guinea pig happy and healthy;
Indigestible Fibre - helps keeps the digestive system moving and aids to grind down teeth.
The correct ratio of these two types of fibre called Beneficial Fibre is vital for:
Digestive Health - ensures the digestive system is healthy and working;
Dental Health - keeps teeth worn down at right size and shape;
Emotional Health - encourages natural behaviour, prevents boredom and helps bonding.
