Fiber is a key component of your pet’s diet, but not all fiber sources are equally good for your pet. Some fiber can actually contribute to gastrointestinal problems. Higgins Vita Garden® is made with our proprietary Fiber-Biotic® pellets that are scientifically formulated with a multi-fiber, nutritionally balanced approach for your pet’s optimal health. Fiber-Biotic® pellets are gluten free and blend multiple, natural fiber sources beneficial to omnivores to support overall health, digestion and firmer stools. Vita Garden® contains Hemicellulose Extract, a natural soluble fiber that is also a prebiotic source to support nutrient absorption and the immune system. Vita Garden® also has protected probiotics and plant-based DHA Omega-3 fatty acids to support immunity.

While introducing a new food to your hamster/gerbil, gradually mix Vita Garden® with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of Vita Garden® over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system. Feed your hamster/gerbil 2 to 3 tbsp of Vita Garden® per day depending on the age of your pet. Younger animals will eat more. Always regulate the food portion to maintain your pet’s weight. Remove and discard uneaten food everyday and clean the bowl prior to refilling it. Always maintain fresh drinking water near your pet’s food container.
