A balanced diet with broccoli & basil, formulated to meet the special nutritional needs of degus. This carefully-chosen blend of high quality ingredients is designed to mimic the natural diet of a degu. Degus need a very low fat diet and high levels of vitamin C, together with high quality fibre to aid healthy digestion and to promote dental wear. Broccoli and basil provide natural antioxidants known for their nutritional benefits.
Have you checked the label on your degus’ food lately? Take a look, because some foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a degu’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too. Degus are also particularly prone to diabetes, so a diet with no added sugars is ideal.
