What is a Fibrevore?
You’ll be familiar with the words carnivore (a meat eater), omnivore (an eater of meat and plants) and herbivore (animal with a plant-based diet).
Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas are all herbivores. But by far the most important elements of their diet, the one thing they absolutely must have to stay healthy and happy is fibre.
At Burgess Excel, they call them ‘Fibrevores’.
Excel Feeding Plan
Vets say that a complete diet for fibrevores should provide for their dental, digestive and emotional health.
The Excel Feeding Plan is an easy to follow 5-a-day guide to ensure your rabbit, guinea pig or chinchilla gets the right balance of fibre, nutrients, vitamins and minerals for their all round health.
That’s why Burgess Excel is the UK’s No. 1 vet recommended food for fibrevores.
Step 1 – Excel Herbage and Forage
These premium quality Timothy Hay and grass foods should form most of your pets’ diet. They are especially good for dental health as the chewing action required by the fibrevore to eat them, helps to wear down teeth. The teeth of all fibrevores are constantly growing and overgrown teeth can be the cause of potentially fatal problems.
Step 2 – Excel Nuggets
Excel Tasty Nuggets are a single component food and are high in ‘Beneficial Fibre’ which means they’re great for digestive health. All Burgess Excel Nuggets have added vitamins, minerals and prebiotics to help with healthy eyes, skin and coat.
Step 3 – Excel Nature Snacks
These delicious, natural and healthy snacks are ideal for ‘Fibrevores’ as they promote emotional health, by preventing boredom. They can also be used to encourage bonding and interaction between you and your pet. They can be fed daily, because they’re packed with ‘Beneficial Fibre’ and made with natural ingredients. Some are specifically designed to be fed by hand which helps pets to get comfortable with human attention.
Step 4 – Fresh Greens
Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchilla can be fed fresh greens to give additional nutrients and to provide some variety. You need to be careful which greens you feed them and how much.
Step 5 – Fresh Water
A plentiful supply of fresh, clean water must always be available.
We hope that the above information is beneficial in caring for your small furry friends. Burgess Excel feed is a very healthy option for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas.
