Rosewood Naturals Meadow Menu Degu and Chinchilla Food 2kg
6 in stock.
Our first main diet within our extremely popular Naturals range, designed to address concerns from experts, vets and pet owners regarding obesity and poor digestive and dental health in chinchillas and degus. Both animals are fibrevores with specialised digestive systems that require high fibre, low energy foods. Most main diets are based around cereals/grains which are a cheap but rich source of energy. However pets can easily over indulge on these grain based diets which can lead to obesity and a reduction in the intake of hay and grasses which are vital for good digestive and overall health; plus tooth wear. Meadow Menu diets replace grains with over 40 different meadow grasses, plants, vegetables and beneficial seeds with no added sugar, salt, GM or artificial ingredients. As well as our food being high in fibre with correct levels of protein the rich variety of meadow plants and grasses also means your pet gets a wide range of natural and beneficial phytonutrients such as flavonoids, antioxidants and vitamins. Meadow Menu also contains parsnip which is source of inulin, a natural prebiotic, which feeds and encourages the growth of beneficial gut bacteria.The food is cold pressed rather than extruded with heat. This means more of the nutrients are retained and the ingredients are less processed which makes the pet's digestive system 'work' at digesting the food and absorbing nutrients - just as it was designed to do. The special quad-shaped pellets stop harmful selective feeding and help to wear growing teeth. Also available for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs. A 2kg pack is designed to feed one chinchilla or two degus for three months.
