Comments: Fiber way too low. More than 20% should be a minimum standard for pellets. Too much soy and corn. Diets like this one depend upon more supplementation of vitamins and minerals (not that great) to make the grade.

She writes: A member of cavycages recently got a pig at PetNotSoSmart and they told him/her to get Nutriphase pellets. They asked about these pellets in a thread and we told them it's crap food. I asked if they would post the ingredients for me and they did. I am giving it to you to add to the Pellet Analysis thread, I didn't see it already listed there.
