- Guinea Pigs have a vitamin C requirement not met by this this diet. If being fed to guinea pigs a vitamin C supplement must be provided. Contact us for more details
- The diet is manufactured as a 4 mm diameter pellet, 4 – 10 mm long
- The diet is packed in 4.5 Kg oxygen impermeable bags under Nitrogen, bags are then packed in cartons to protect them during transit
- If the diet is to be autoclaved, the recommended conditions are: Autoclave at 120 C for 20 minutes with a post autoclaving vacuum drying cycle. Some clumping of the diet can be expected, but the diet clumps can usually be easily broken. Modifying the drying time to leave some residual moisture in the diet can minimize the clumping. Do not autoclave at 1350 C as this will result in significant clumping that will be difficult to break. It must be remembered that cholesterol is likely to be degraded by autoclaving.
