Oxbow's Cavy Cuisine - Adult Guinea Pig Food is made from timothy grass meal, which includes the high fiber adult guinea pigs need. However, it contains a lower level of protein, calories and calcium than alfalfa-based pellets. Adult animals' digestive systems do not require the same level as that of younger animals. Cavy Cuisine - Adult Guinea Pig contains stabilized Vitamin C and an optimal calcium-to-phosphorus ratio that helps maintain a healthy body. When fed with Oxbow grass hays and treats, Cavy Cuisine - Adult Guinea Pig provides complete stabilized nutrition.

Top customer reviews
Update: two months later I upgraded my star rating to 4 starts ... I am currently working with Oxbow customer service. They have been very helpful. There has not been any changes in the formula, only possible variance in hay due to natural causes. We will try to see if our piggies are reacting negatively to this particular batch.
Increases Weight Control and Digestion
Oxbow’s pellet is 100% timothy-based, which means that the pellet does not include any alfalfa. Alfalfa is a fatty and rich hay that is used in most guinea pig foods as a less expensive, lower quality alternative. The use of alfalfa in pellets, can lead to serious health problems for your guinea pig, such as weight gain, later on resulting in diabetes, as well as digestive issues, which can result in fatalities. You can find alfalfa-based pellets at most large-scale pet stores such as Petco and PetSmart, but very seldom can you find a timothy-based pellet with this quality. Instead, oxbow products are found online, costing a bit more due to shipping and handling, but providing your guinea pig with these necessary health benefits makes the additional cost incredibly worth it.
Encourages a Balanced System
This formula also contains a well-balanced ratio of calcium and phosphorus, which is essential for a healthy urinary system. Calcium is important for your guinea pig, as it is responsible for the health of your pig’s teeth and bones. Phosphorus is also essential, but too much of either of these nutrients can be detrimental. By keeping your guinea pigs system balanced, with higher calcium content than phosphorus, you will lessen your risk of serious issues such as stone formation. This will save you several vet bills, and tons of stress.
Boosts Healthy Immune Systems
The icing on the cake, however, is that Oxbow’s pellet contains vitamin C. As many of you know, guinea pigs, like us, are unable to create their own vitamin C. This means that incorporating vitamin C into your cavy’s diet is an absolute must. Oxbow’s pellet contains a stabilized, or highly condensed, vitamin C level that has a shelf life up to 12 months. Alongside of a cup of vegetables and fruits daily, this pellet will assure that your guinea pig is obtaining the vitamin C it must in order to fight off life-threatening respiratory issues.
Overall, this product is a must. You have a guinea pig, and you want the best for your fragile cavy. Oxbow’s Cavy Cuisine is about as top notch as it gets. And it doesn’t stop here; I would recommend all of Oxbow’s products, ranging from bedding to dietary needs, to enhance your guinea pigs lifestyle needs.
