- Stimulates appetite, whether appetite loss is due to illness, stress, nutrient deficiencies, poor liver function or a side effect of some drugs
- Promotes weight gain
- Source of numerous, naturally - occurring active enzymes that improve the absorption of nutrients
- Contains an impressive amount of B vitamins + dandelion root and leaves (bitter herb) that trigger an appetite

Please note that the loss of appetite and weight in chinchillas, rabbits, guinea pigs and other animals is seen in many illnesses. Please take your pet to a vet to determine the cause of weight and appetite loss.
Pelleted feeds can not replace a natural diet.
- Pelleted feeds are more difficult to digest and they lack some enzymes. Also, pellets have added vitamins from synthetic / inorganic sources that are not easily absorbed and digested by the body. Pellets contain so many synthetic nutrients (all the essential known nutrients) because those nutrients were are not there (inadequate ingredients). Synthetic nutrients put strain on liver and kidneys and can cause deficiencies if body tries to supply missing co-factors. "According to research results noted in the Veterinary Clinical Reference Guide, forced supplementation of the missing portions of the vitamin complex can result in a deficiency." Some animals just can not deal with everyday pounding of all needed synthetic nutrients. Rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs and other herbivores should get unprocessed plants. Enzymes start to die at 105 degrees, and at 130 degrees almost all enzymes are destroyed.
- Rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs and other herbivores who suffer from malabsorption need nutrients in an easy absorbable form (plant sources). Stress, an enzyme deficient diet, a diet that consists of fractional ingredients/synthetic nutrients can lead to malfunction of absorption. While we can't give our animals the same diet that they enjoy in the wild, we can offer a diet that closely resembles the composition of their natural foods. Organic/plant sources contain the intrinsic vitamin and mineral complexes. Nutrients from plant sources are fully available for uptake and utilization. It's important to offer organic hays and herbs to avoid herbicides or pesticides.
- When herbivores get various organic hays, herbs, bark, and a small amount of pellets, they can better meet their need for nutrients and regulate their intake of toxins (all plants contain toxins). Animals who constrained to a singe food, do not get this chance, even if the food they get is "complete" and "balanced."
