GP Nutrition

First of all, have some keyboard problems here so please bare with me. Two keys on my keyboard do not work at all because one of the kids dumped Kool-Aid in my keyboard.

As most everyone here knows I did a nutrition page for Christi (ok, can we tell which two keys do not work?) on Chinchillas. I want to do one on guineas so I need people to send me the nutritional information off of petfood bags, treats, and the like (email address is in my profile ~ I hope ([email protected]). LOL. Need one of those non-working keys for my email address. If all else fails, ask Christi for it. Klingon Empire is down for the time being so that email address does not work. I won't get any email there for a while so please don't send email there.) . I would also really like it if someone could send me the nutritional information on dandilions. I can't find it.

Christi ~ do you want the GP nutrition page for PT or should I put it up on my own? You get first dibs on it.

Thank you. I was hoping that you or someone else would be able to do that for me. Until I get a new keyboard I am afraid that someone is going to have to keep an eye on my posts and help me out.

So, you want to send me the info on Mazuri GP food? I know you have it.

You got it Christi. When it is done you can put it up here. Got some stuff that I need to look up...need the info on foods if people will please send it to me. Really don't want to have to look it all up on the net...that could take forever, especially since I have no clue how many foods are out there.

I am actually thinking of doing this for every animal...a nutrition page simialar to the one that did for the chins. What do you think?

Anyone feel like they are in the twilight zone reading my posts with the missing letters?

The only foods I get are Cavy Performance for the kids, and Cavy Cuisine for the adults. Timothy, Oat, Orchard Grass Hays - and Wheat Hay from American Pet Diner.

I think Oxbow foods are the best - although the UPS driver hates me! He's allergic to hay, and gets a back ache every time I order!

Dallas and Erin, if you don't mind could you please post the ingredients for us?? If you need an idea of what we're looking for look in Georga's thread in the General Animal Discussion section - the title is Help.

Thanks!!

western timothy hay

Guaranteed Analysis

Crude Protein min 7.00 %
Crude Fat min 1.50 %
Crude Fiber max 32.00 %
Moisture max 15.00 %

Ingredients
timothy hay


Feeding Instructions

Timothy should be fed free-choice to mature animals as an alternative to orchard, oat and brome grass hays. Free-choice means that the feed is available at all times.

description

Western Timothy is a high fiber, low protein, low calcium grass hay which helps keep the gastrointestinal tract of rabbits and small herbivores functioning properly. Feeding timothy hay helps to prevent obesity, maintain a healthy urinary system and improve overall health.

Timothy is the hay most widely recommended by veterinarians for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other herbivores. It is a very fragrant hay, which encourages consumption.

The first cutting is harvested in mid-summer. It is a more mature hay, containing a higher stem to leaf ratio and is coarser in texture. First cutting timothy is actually healthier as it is higher in fiber and lower in protein than a second cutting timothy, but some small animals may not find it as appealing as a second cutting.

The second cutting timothy is an immature cutting of hay, and therefore contains a higher leaf to stem ratio. It is harvested in the late fall and is very soft and palatable to small animals. It is our leafiest and most popular hay, and also makes great bedding material for young animals as it is very soft. (SUPPLY LIMITED!)
