guinea pig pellets

  1. Degu Discussion
    I'm sure some of you may use this already, but there is a special degu food now available in the UK in some places. It may have been around for a while. Its called Menu for Degus, manufactured by Vitakraft. I still mix it with chinchilla pellets and occasionally some guinea pig food. It is...
  2. Degu Discussion
    In a couple of weeks I'm getting a pair of degus :D . I went to the petstore today and handled them for a while. They were pretty tame except one thought my finger was food and started nibbling on my hand :lol: . Didn't hurt at least :) . Anyways, I was wondering what to expect the first few...
  3. Rabbit Discussion
    Ok, I've heard that Guinea Pigs and rabbits get along well, and they are good companions, I've also heard they don't do well... Can anybody tell me if its normaly a good or bad idea? I figure that since they both eat timothy hay, when I feed pellets I can put a divider in their cage until they...
  4. Degu Discussion
    This may seem strange, but I can't find Chinchilla pellets anywhere. All the Chinchilla foods are mixes...A good degu diet is a 50/50 mix of guinea pig and chinchilla pellets, or so I've heard. Is there something else I can mix? Like hamster/gerbil pellets or rabbit pellets or something?
  5. Degu Discussion
    I WAS WONDERING IF THERE ARE ANY BRITS OUT THERE WITH DEGUS.. I KNOW THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE STATES HAVE THEM, BUT WHAT ABOUT OVER HERE.. :pd2:
  6. Degu Discussion
    I have read that some things, such as potato skins can be poisionous to degus. Is there a list we can make as a sticky that are bad foods not to be given to them? I'd love to give them slices of apples but I don't know if it's safe for them to eat.
  7. Degu Discussion
    My little 12 year old sister wants a pet of some sort for her birthday in October. She mentioned a guinea pig but I've seen degus at the pet store before and they are so cute. Which would be easiest for her to care for and funnest for her to play with?? I have ferrets, I'd love to get her...
  8. Degu Discussion
    I read somewhere that degus can be kept in the same cage as guinea pigs and rabbits? Does this sound familiar to anyone here? :confused:
  9. Degu Discussion
    I just wanted to know if anybody has any recommendations on an actual "diet" for degus. My husband and I got 2 degus about 6 months ago, and we have been giving them a mixture of guinea pig and chin pellets, and they seemed to be doing very well on this, as well as fresh Timoth Hay, and various...
  10. Reptile & Amphibian Discussion
    By: Dr. Nancy Anderson Caging A great deal of thought must go into a reptile's captive environment. You must consider the size and shape of the enclosure as well as the materials from which the enclosure will be constructed. Cages need to be escape proof, non-abrasive and easy to disinfect...

  12. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Well, I've been reading up, but much of the info that I have covers the breeds of pigs, not really a lot of "how to" info. So I have a few questions that I hope you guys can help me out with. 1. What type of bedding do you use? I know that there are different preferences out there, so please...

    Lena from Cavies Galore compiled this BEAUTIFUL list of vegetable, fruits, and wild grasses that are cavy friendly and ones to avoid. Here is the link to her actual post, but I will also copy it for you for easy access for those who are not members there...
  14. Degu Discussion
    Latin name: Octondon Degu (The name comes from the worn enamel surface of its teeth which forms a figure eight pattern.) INTRODUCTION Degus (pronounced day-goo) are small (approx. 6 inches in length plus another 6 inches of tail, weighing about 1/2 a pound), rodent-like animals from South...
  15. Degu Discussion
    I have read that Chinchillas and degus can be kept together. Is this true? If it is does the sex matter in either species, for instance Male chins and female degus? I don't believe they could cross breed but could the female degu estrus cycle cause problems between 2 male chins or since they are...
