What do your PDs eat?

Like I introduced myself, I'm from Finlad and the knowledge about prairie dogs isn't good..

So now I'm interested what are you feeding to your prairie dogs. In here, the recommendation is to give them chinchilla's and guinea pigs dry food with nothing fresh vegetables. I don't agree with that, so now I'm trying to find something else to feed them. I've started with hay and vegetables and different kind of seeds like pumpkin's seeds. Also some oat..

How does it sound

Mine get Timothy hay every day and I give shredded wheat as treats and they're doing very well. PD's shouldn't have food and treats that are high in fat and sugar since they're prone to obesity.

I was told by my vet that they need kale, certain lettuce (not iceland) sometimes small amounts of Alfalfa for the minerals.
