    Question Piggy hates pellets?

    So my piggy, Luke, doesnít like his pellets and refuses to eat them. I bought him a certain kind of food that doesnít have them in it, is that okay? Iím a first time piggy owner so Iím not sure if they need the pellets or not.

    A good quality pellet makes sure that a guinea pig has all the vitamins and minerals it needs. It takes quite a bit of effort to make sure they get those things if they're not eating pellets.

    The only brands of pellets that we recommend are KMS Hayloft and Oxbow. They're both hay-based, and neither has calcium carbonate as the calcium source.

    You'd have to order KMS Hayloft online, either from KMS or Amazon. Oxbow you might find locally.
