Should I give my guinea pig a muesli style feed, I've heard it's bad for them as it encourages selective feeding?
"Our personal opinion (as experienced guinea pig parents) is that criticism of muesli style mixes is a little unfair. Muesli, per say, is not the issue, it can actually encourage foraging and provide added enrichment if it's a good quality mix. Additionally, it's a handy tool for an underweight guinea pig that needs a boost. BUT the problem is if it's overfeed. There's then a high risk of the guinea pig selectively feeding and not getting the right nutritional balance. If a guinea pig is getting 80-90% hay, 5% nuggets, a cup of fresh greens and fresh drinking water daily then it's getting a decent balance. In this case, muesli is a perfectly suitable complementary feed." - Rik, Co-founder of HayPigs!

According to our research (HayPigs!®), most vets recommend a portion size of around 1⁄8 of a cup per adult guinea pig, per day. This is a guideline and the actual amount needed can vary depending on activity levels and other factors. Don’t forget, guinea pigs should always have unlimited access to good quality feeding hay and a supply of fresh clean drinking water.
When changing your guinea pigs food, always ensure that you introduce the new food slowly. Gradually increase the new and decrease the old over a period of approximately 14 days. If switching from a muesli style diet, then increase the transition period to 21-28 days.
We’ve made portion controlling super easy with our new HayPigs!® Junior Food Tamer™ - Mini Food Bowl (which portion controls for you!). Simply fill it to the top for the ideal daily portion for two adult guinea pigs. And it’s tip-proof too! For information, see our product listing.
