Frequently asked questions

Our range of food has been carefully formulated to provide wholesome nutrition and contains no artificial colours or flavours, no dairy and no soya.

  • No, Wagg do not add any artificial colours or flavours to our products.

  • Wagg diets for Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils and Mice contain an interesting variety of high quality ingredients. Rabbits and Guinea pigs should have access to plenty of fresh hay as this is essential for the extra fibre that they need to keep their digestive systems in good health. They will also appreciate fresh greens and vegetables several times a week to provide extra variety. We recommend that you feed fresh fruit for a treat only, as too much can cause weight gain and dental disease. Make sure that you introduce any new food gradually to prevent any digestive upsets.

    For Rabbits, recommended vegetables include: broccoli, sprouts, celery, peas and their pods, cabbage, carrots and carrot tops.
    Recommended fruit includes: apples, strawberries and their leaves, grapes, pears, blackberries and their leaves, plums and bananas.
    For Guinea Pigs, recommended vegetables include: spinach, turnip, carrots and carrot tops. We recommend that you feed fresh fruit as a treat only, as too much fruit can cause your guinea pig to put on weight and cause dental disease. Recommended fruit includes: apples, strawberries and their leaves, grapes, apricots, blueberries and bananas.

  • You should provide a constant supply of fresh water preferably in a water bottle attached to the hutch to prevent contamination. Make sure that this is cleaned out regularly, particularly in hot weather to stop algae growing.

  • Rabbit’s teeth grow all the time and wear down naturally through chewing. To help prevent overgrowth of teeth provide plenty of hay for your rabbit to chew on. Providing small safe twigs such as apple, hazel and willow for your rabbit to chew can also help keep your rabbits teeth in good condition.

  • In the wild animals spend a lot of time foraging for food. To encourage foraging scatter food around the hutch, provide toys to keep your animals occupied during the day and regularly spend some time with them: they are sociable animals and enjoy company.

  • We source our ingredients as locally as possible. The majority of ingredients are made or grown within Europe. We use only reputable suppliers which are mostly based in the UK. Any imported products have to conform to European standards and pass our suppliers and our own quality testing.

  • We do not send out samples of our food or treats as this helps us to keep our costs down. Most of our varieties are available in small size packs which are ideal for testing, giving a better indication of suitability that a small sample bag. We recommend introducing a new food gradually into your pet’s diet over a period of around 5 to 7 days as this helps to avoid digestive upset which can occur when new ingredients are introduced into the diet too quickly.
