A high-fiber pellet diet specially formulated for degus with a tasty blend of timothy hay, vegetables and fruit. As part of the family, a good quality diet is just as important for your pet as it is for the rest of the household. That’s why we created Vita Prima Degu Food to have all the essentials for your degu to live a happy and healthy life. With vitamin-fortified timothy pellets carefully formulated without molasses or added sugar, Vita Prima has all the nutrients degus need and natural flavors they want in a complete pellet diet to prevent selective eating.
Feed 1 to 1.5 ounces daily per degu in a heavy, non-plastic dish. Fresh drinking water and unlimited high-fiber hay should always be available: timothy for adults, alfalfa for degus under 1 year of age. Supplement with fresh greens & vegetables. Degus are highly sensitive to sugar and should not be fed fruit. Offering seeds or nuts by hand as a treat is a great way to reward and bond with your pet, but should be fed sparingly. Discard uneaten food and clean dish before each feeding. If you have not fed Vita Prima before, introduce it gradually over a 10 to 14-day period to prevent digestive upset.
