My online friend who own piggy told me that CP Diet around her area is out of stock, so she bought another brand : Gold Blend. She also wrote the ingredients : corn, rice bran, wheat grain, wheat barn, soybean meal, fullfat soybean, alfafa, leucaena meal, carrot, salt, essential vitamin and minerals. And also the nutritional analysis : Protein 22%, Fat 2%, Fiber 16%, Moisture 11%, Calcium 1.5%, Phosporus 0.85%.

She said that her pigs love this brand more than CP,and she want to know which one is better : CP Diet or Gold Blend. If this brand is better than CP then she would be using Gold Blend.

By the way, I already asked about the using of CP Diet in : https://www.guineapigcages.com/threads/46227/post-437747

As far as I know, CP Diet is the only almost-safe, accepted, available and affordable pellets in Indonesia. So if there's any other alternatives (or maybe the better ones), I would be very happy to tell others to change to that brand too.

Thanks in advance :)
 
No, it's not good. Corn is the first ingredient and that means it's the highest level. Corn is not good for guinea pigs at all. There is also no added vit C which is needed by piggies, though this can be given through fresh veggies. This seems more like a farm animal food to me. Honestly, it's about the worst I've seen!

She may say they like it better but that's because it's like chips to us-junk food!
She's better off sticking to hay and fresh veggies and not using this pellet.
