Question about pellets
Posted 17 January 2012 - 02:46 AM
I would like to get your opinions on the regular Zupreem Natural Diet. It doesn't have all the artificial colors, so I assume it's better than the Fruitblend. Do you think this would be a healthy choice?
I am also considering switching to Harrison's pellets. I've heard lots of good things about this brand, plus I can get it at a decent price from the vet clinic where I work.
Also, what is the best way to go about switching foods? Should I just mix in the new brand with the old and gradually increase the ratio of new food to old food? I assume that it won't be quite as difficult as switching from a seed diet to pellets, but any tips on this would be appreciated. Thanks!

You might be able to switch your girl over cold turkey, but maybe not. You might have to slowly phase in the new brand and phase out the old by mixing them together, or making the new pellets as treats.
My guys were seed junkies at first and refused to eat pellets, then some decided that pellets were good, but only when taken from another cage! Then ok, ya, pellets are fine, but they only liked *one* "type" of pellets and not another "type" (how the pellets are processed/made). Now, they seem to eat any of them!

So in short, it wouldn't hurt to start with the HP diet for a few months at least.
