Small pets might not eat big, but they need the right small pet food. Both guinea pigs and rabbits need a high-fibre pellet diet with plenty of fresh fruit and veggies to stimulate the digestive system. When it comes to rabbit food your bunny is a fibrevore, which means hay, leafy greens, and pellets are essential for their health. Hay should make up 80% of your bunny food, so make sure they have a good supply for your small pet to snack on.

Guinea pigs are natural grazers and eat throughout the whole day. Good guinea pig food will include a lot of roughage, which helps wear down their teeth and prevent dental problems. Like rabbits, guinea pigs need a lot of hay in their diet as well as fresh green vegetables and guinea pig pellets – which will give them all the minerals they need. It’s also important to feed them high quality rabbit food and guinea pig food.

When feeding rabbits and guinea pigs hay, it should be offered fresh daily. A great tip is to keep it well-ventilated, so it doesn’t become wet. You can also sprinkle fresh herbs like parsley over the hay, this will encourage foraging. Guinea pigs prefer grass hay and Animates has a great range of hay and guinea pig food instore.

Rats and mice also require the right kind of food. Specially formulated rat pellets and mouse pellets will keep your rascally rodents healthy and happy. And lastly – don’t forget about water! A weighted water bowl or a drip bottle is ideal and think about a non-chewable bowl for your nibbly new friends.
