Our Fave GP Food & Treats:

People often ask us what food/treats we give our GPs. Our fave food is made by Oxbow ("Essentials Cavy Cuisine") because it is hay-based (not corn-based or wheat-based like cheaper brands).  Our Scamps also love Oxbow's Timothy Hay (of course!) and "Simple Rewards" Timothy Hay Treats and Oxbow's Vitamin C hay-based daily tablets (they are very hard, too hard for GP's teeth, so we break them into small bites using a hammer). A Vit. C daily supplement is necessary for ALL GPs! (We buy Oxbow products online or at Petsmart.)

 

PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT employed by Oxbow and are NOT paid advertisers. We honestly LOVE this high-quality brand for our Scamps! They deserve the best ingredients for longer, healthier lives!  

Oxbow's Critical Care

Through the years, we've had several GPs that have needed surgeries (for example, bladderstone removal) and Oxbow's Critical Care has been a lifesaver ~ literally! "Critical Care is a premium recovery food which can be given to herbivores [vegetarian pets] with poor nutritional status resulting from illness or surgery. This specially formulated product contains all the essential nutrients of a complete diet as well as high-fiber Timothy hay to support proper gut physiology and digestion." (Our GPs fave flavor is anise.) Critical Care is a powder that you mix with warm water and feed orally with a feeding syringe. (C.C. must be refrigerated or stored in the freezer.) GPs gobble it up! (See photos below!)

 

Thankfully, Norton has not had any health issues but he LOVES Critical Care as a treat!

Freemont has not had any health issues either but he ADORES Critical Care as a treat!

Within 24 hours of adopting Mr. Belvedere, we offered him Critical Care and he did not hesitate to gobble it up (although he had to learn how to drink from a syringe). Lap time with Critical Care is great bonding time!

Daily Vitamin C Prevents Scurvy!

GPs need Vit. C daily. Veggies like broccoli and green pepper are high in Vit. C but we still like to supplement their diets with liquid Vit. C in their water -or- the Oxbow Vit. C Timothy hay supplement (pictured above). Most Petsmarts and Petcos sell Oasis Concentrated High Potency Pure C for GPs. Our GPs love it in their water! "Water soluable formula provides the 25mg Vit. C that all GPs (cavies) need daily to prevent scurvy."
