Great Save--Everyone should find this product
Okay, I know on here we all love Mazuri lab blocks, but I've come up with two problems since I've started increasing my rat population and breeding
1-It's expensive stuff--$5.50 for 2lb bag
2-the blocks are too big for some of my babies to eat easily
So last night the petstore was out of mazuri so I just looked around and started comparing nutritional information for other things and guess what? LM Animal Farms Classic Guinea Pig food is virtually the same thing if not better. I compared it to my old bag of Mazuri when I got home. It has almost the exact protein, it has a lot more fiber, a little less fat, and when I read the ingredients I found that they were almost exactly the same except some of the less healthy ingredients for rats like corn and mollases were actually further down on the list for the Animal Farms stuff. The only really significant difference I found is that it's higher in protein, vitamin c, and folic acid. And I certainly don't see how that could hurt!
The best part of all is that it is $6.50 for a 5 lb bag!! That's a lot better! Plus it is a pellet food, not a mix, so you know they're getting the right nutrition, but the pellets are a lot smaller! I think it's really going to be a life saver for us!
