My cavies love it Anon on 23 October 2018

This is the only dry food my guinea pigs will eat (other than hay) tried different nuggets and they refused to eat. I get the 10kg bag and it lasts about a month between my 6.

Best price found on the internet rebeccadean on 4 February 2015

I used to buy the smaller bags of excel nuggets for my piggies but always seemed to be replacing them When I asked my local petshop if there was a larger size they said it would cost me almost 80 So I looked online and found petplanet selling it for a lot less It was a nobrainer Their delivery is excellent and I have no intention of shopping elsewhere

Feeding Guide

Remember that good quality hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your guinea pigs’ diet and should be available at all times. Guinea pigs should also be fed a small portion of Excel nuggets, the occasional Excel Nature Snack to add variety and encourage emotional enrichment, and a small handful of leafy greens each day. Fresh, clean water should always be available. Please talk to your vet for further information.

If you are currently feeding a muesli style food to your guinea pigs, you should gradually transfer your pets onto a hay and nugget based feeding plan over a period of between 14 and 28 days. You can do this by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of nuggets until they have completely replaced the mix.

Always ensure you are monitoring your guinea pigs’ weight to ensure a healthy weight. If you are ever unsure you should seek veterinary advice.

Follow the 5 step Excel Feeding Plan for healthy, happy guinea pigs.
