    Also, try petrescue.com.au

    Pellets: Re: Mazuri 5664 looks and ingredients??

    VetaFarm Cavy Life Origins is also okay to feed, I've tried it with my guys (though they all get Oxbow as their staple pellet, 1tbsp each a day) and they seemed to like it just fine. There is also a...

    It's actually not advisable to routinely clean their anal sacks for no reason. You actually strip away the natural mucous and can tear the lining and actually cause issues rather than prevent them. ...
