TOXIC FOODS

Toxic foods are poisonous to degus and should be completely avoided.

 

  • Rabbit food (may contain coccidiostat, an ingredient that is toxic to degus)

  • Chocolate

  • Caffeine

 

UNSAFE FOODS

Unsafe foods are dangerous to degus because they can cause harm or injury to the animal due to their attributes.

 

  • Cabbage (causes bloating)

  • Sugar and molasses (they can’t metabolize it)

  • Starchy foods (too many carbohydrates)

 

UNHEALTHY FOODS

Unhealthy foods won’t necessarily cause lasting harm to degus but should still be avoided because of the negative impact on their health.

 

  • Nuts and seeds (and other high-fat/high-protein foods)

  • Fruit (high in sugar)

  • Carrots (high in sugar)
