    going pellet-less: Vitamin D - how to get in in winter?

    Hello

    I am going pellet-less in my guinea pig's diet. What Vitamin D supplements are recommended during the winter months?

    For the spring/ summer/ fall months I've heard outside for just 15 minutes a day will suffice. Are we talking *direct* sunlight? Or just indirect sunlight outside in shade?


    Thanks so much!

    according to research guinea pigs need some vitamin D so calcium goes into their bones, not soft tissues.


    Do the ingredients in this look ok? I of course would give a much lower dose.

    Does anyone know approximately how much vitamin D a day is recommended?


    Thank you!
