XtraVital Guinea Pig Feed is an extremely palatable, well-balanced, premium feed. Guinea pigs have special nutritional requirements because they do not make vitamin C themselves. XtraVital Guinea Pig Feed is enriched with extra vitamin C. The varied composition of high-value ingredients ensures optimum acceptance. It has low fat content to prevent obesity. Alfalfa is added to stimulate the intestinal flora. The use of chelated minerals (minerals surrounded by a protein coating) improves absorption. XtraVital contains Echinacea, a plant extract that maintains a healthy immune system and together this feed ensures a lively and vivacious guinea pig with a beautiful coat and healthy skin.
