Oxbow Essentials Young Guinea Pig Food is an alfalfa-based, high fiber pellet food formulated for growing, pregnant and nursing guinea pigs.

Young and Growing Guinea Pigs require higher levels of protein, calcium and energy. Essential Young Guinea Pig pellets provide an ideal balance of proteins and amino acids required for the growth and health of your guinea pig. Guinea pigs require a daily supplement of Vitamin C. Essentials Young Guinea Pig Food is enhanced with Stay C-35, which is a stabilized form of Vitamin C with a one year shelf life. Every 1/8 cup of pellets has 22 mg of Vitamin C.
