I have fed this food to my guinea pigs before. I feed them Oxbow now but it could be worse!
 
Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to read the list of ingrediants and tell you whether or not it's any good, but I will say buying in 2 lb or 4.5 lb increments is going to add up quickly.

How many piggies do you have?
 
From what I have seen of the food, it's a food mix rather than plain pellets. Plain pellets are always best.
 
I only have one guinea pig. thanks for input it was the best they had I could find at petco
 
Do you have a pet smart close to you? That's where I found my oxbow.
 
no Petco and tractor supply are the only available pet stores that I have found so far. Might have to order it from petsmart online have it shipped to me.
 
Try looking for a smallish Mom and Pop type pet shop, sometimes they will carry brands like Oxbow. Otherwise ordering online might be a good option. I can find Oxbow at a Petsmart here but only the adult version and all my piggies are under 6 months, so I have to get it from a local Mom and Pop store. If they weren't here I'd have to go online too. Good luck and no seeds. If it's got seeds in it it's automatically bad for them.
