Let's start off with what is so good about this pig food. I think the big thing for me is that it is all the same pellet. My boys were already on a pellet that was all the same, however, it was made for Rabbits not pigs. So alongside that, this one is specially formulated with Guinea Pigs needs in mind, they have Vitamins A, D3, C and E as well as Iron and Fibre. Vitamin C is very important in a pigs health, as they cannot produce this themselves and need their diet to get this. It also has mint to aid in digestion, and prebiotic for the same reason. Pretty much, this is the perfect pellet. Remember, pellets only make up 5% of a pigs diet, so it is vital that the product you are feeding is putting as much good stuff into their bodies as possible.
I do believe I have seen a difference in the boys since feeding this and it has only been a few weeks. Knuckles' hair seems to be longer and shinier, especially on his rump. They are more active, and BMO actually now squeaks for food, where as previously he wouldn't talk. I do think that over time I will see a much bigger improvement in the boys over all, and I definitely think its worth the extra money compared to other brands. I am now looking at purchasing the rabbit version for Schmutz as he loves his pellet food, and I think that he would really benefit from a more nutritional product.
Bear in mind though, this is not a replacement for hay or vegetables. Hay should still be constantly available to your pigs, and is a big percentage of their overall diet. Vegetables also need to be fed daily, and this doesn't replace the high in Vitamin C vegetables that you can find. Just because you are feeding a pellet that is more nutritional doesn't mean you should skimp on the rest. I will be doing a post on the vegetables that I feed the pigs so that you all have a guide for some things you could look at feeding also.
