Feeding Degus

Feeding DegusWild Degus mainly live on bulbs, tubers and bark. Since these foods are not readily available to the typical Degu owner, Exotic Nutrition has devised a complete feed for Degus.

DEGU COMPLETE is a balanced vitamin fortified pellet feed that contains all the nutrition necessary for growth and reproduction. Developed with the help of animal nutritionalists and veterinarians, DEGU COMPLETE, along with satisfying the nutritional requirements of pet Degus, also serves as a aid in preventing excess tooth growth and satisfies your Degus need to chew.

Feed your Degus this food 'free choice' daily along an ample supply of fresh timothy hay or timothy hay cubes. Fresh drinking water should be available at all times. The typical rodent type drip bottles work great for water supply, glass type is preferable. It is important that Degus are kept to a bland diet and offered healthy treats such as the treats listed in our Degu Department, do not offer sugar treats or dried fruit treats.

Hay cubes are also a recommended treat and can be found in the hay department of this web site. You can also offer chew toys and Pumice Chew blocks.

Degus should have a yellow vegetable (sweet potato), a green vegetable (dandelion is loved by them but beware of pesticides), but any very green leaf vegetable, preferably not from the cabbage family is O.K. Don't cook the sweet potatoes , give them to them raw. Also make sure to remove the skins and roots.
