Emeraid Sustain Herbivore exceeds the nutritional requirements for rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas, and may be fed for prolonged periods of time (even years) when clinical condition requires. In fact, since the energy density of Sustain Herbivore is approximately 20% higher than most standard diets, weight management must be considered when animals are fed Sustain Herbivore ad libitum.

A complete and balanced source of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and nucleotides.
Hydrolyzed soy protein is an easily digestible protein, which helps the body quickly rebuild lean body mass.
