JR Farm Grainless Complete Guinea Pig

jr-farm-grainless-complete-guinea-pigHere we are back again folks with another review on guinea pig pellet and muesli foods! If you would like to see what other brands we have done so far, you can simply visit the guinea pig pellet dictionary!As always we are looking for the good and bad ingredients to determine whether a brand is good or bad and I have to say that the first sentence of this mix really gets me excited! Grasses, herbs, vegetables and no grain! I hope this turns out to be as good as it says!



Ingredients

  • Timothy grass
  • Orchard grass
  • Meadow grass
  • Plantain
  • Red clover
  • Meadow fescue
  • Lady’s mantle
  • Parsley
  • Pea flakes
  • Diced carrots and beans flakes
  • Diced parsnip
  • Peppermint leaves
  • Fennel
  • Diced apple
  • Flax seed
  • Dandelion leaves
  • Diced beetroot
  • Nettle
  • Chamomile flowers
  • Black onion seed
  • Vitamins

jr-farm-grainless-complete-guinea-pig-1These ingredients look very interesting! There is a lot of variety here, but I am not happy to see that  flax and black onion seeds are on the list. Seeds aren’t a natural part of a guinea pig’s diet and are quite fatty. Overall this isn’t too bad as far as pellets go and the grass is timothy/meadow/orchard based instead of lucerne which is a huge plus. It seems that you cannot escape having one or two “avoid it, ingredients” in a pellet mix *sigh.*

Analysis

  • Vitamin A (10,000 IU/kg)
  • Vitamin D3 (1,000 IU/kg)
  • Vitamin C (250 mg)
  • Vitamin E (40 mg)
  • protein     11.2 %
  • fat     2.9 %
  • fibre     21.4 %
  • ash     7.4 %
  • calcium     0.5 %
  • phosphorus     0.3 %

There is a fantastic amount of vitamin c, fiber and calcium in here. Not a bad feed at all!Only 1/8 cup per pig.

I rate this three stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sometimes it is impossible to get hold of some of the best, most recommenced brands, which is why I’ve put together a list of guinea pig pellet brands which you can view and choose for yourself based on our recommendations. Be sure to have a thorough search for suppliers in your area both online or in store.  Good luck!
