Teklad guinea pig diets are complete and balanced diets formulated to meet the nutritional needs of guinea pigs during various stages of the life cycle.

Protein supplied by plant and fish meal sources provides the balance of essential amino acids required by guinea pigs. Fat from soybean oil supplies essential fatty acids necessary for a good hair coat.

Teklad guinea pig diets are properly fortified with vitamins and minerals to meet the needs of guinea pigs during growth, maintenance, and reproduction.

Vitamin C is included in these diets because guinea pigs (as do man and other primates) require a dietary source of vitamin C to prevent scurvy. Stabilized vitamin C (L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate) is used to extend the shelf life.

Alfalfa meal is included as a high-quality forage product to help maintain the normal functioning of the guinea pigs digestive system. The firm, pelleted diet aids in preventing feed wastage.
