Have you checked the label on your degus’ food lately? Take a look, because some foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a degu’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too. Degus are also particularly prone to diabetes, so a diet with no added sugars is ideal.

My degus love their Science selective, I think it must be the tempting basil and broccoli flavours
My friend told me degus are at high risk of diabetes so recommended this food because it has no added sugar. Great to know I am doing the best for my degus and they seem to think the food is delicious so we’re all happy!
