Special Treat for Cats
By Natalie on May 22, 2019
Every now & then I'll get the extra small size for my cats. They like to play with them a bit first since they are so much bigger than rodents I usually give. I do have 2 issues feeding g. pigs to cats though. One, the intestines are pretty stinky & full of poop so my cats ask me to remove them when they start getting to it and 2, the skull can be a little thick for my cat's preference so 1 in particular leaves a mangled head. I choose to bury it because it seems so disrespectful to me to throw in the trash. They smell & look like they've been treated well which is really important to me. I've bought stuff from RodentPro before & never will again because their animals smell heavily of urine & seemed like some weren't frozen for a long time after they died. Hare Today delivers consistent great quality.
Whole prey, not for my pup :(
By Gabriela on November 30, 2018
I was so excited to try this! Unfortunately my dog just poked at it and walked away. I added goat's milk and bone broth (her favorite) and she still would not touch it. Tried cutting it up hoping that it would entice her to eat it and had no luck. She's usually not a picky eater, but she is 5 years old, not sure if it's too new or different that she's just not willing to eat it. I do love that Hare Today has the whole carcass grinds which she devours. (And it's a great way to add fiber to her diet).
Piggy Goes Quickly

My dogs love the whole guinea pigs. They gets lots of chewing exercise and I am happy that they are getting whole prey with all the guts and bones included.
Spledid Whole Prey
By Brittany on May 14, 2018
Very clean, good size, great muscle tone! My cat Tigger loved it, as did my sister's pit bull. Unfortunately, my cat ended up puking most of it up. I think I should have removed the intestines for him- it seemed every time he ate the guts it was about 5min before he chucked. Made a couple attempts over 3 days to eat it, but couldn't keep it down. He is able to keep the ground cavies down just fine, so not quite sure what was up. Will be trying again tho. The pit bull wants her own next time.

My dog loved these! And they looked great, very clean and healthy. The small guinea pigs were the perfect size for my 50 pound dog.
Labrador loved the guinea pig!!
By Sarah on October 28, 2017
My Labrador thourghly enjoyed his guinea pig! I’ve fed him ground guinea pig in the past and he’s always eaten it with great enthusiasm (but then again...he is a lab!!) I absolutely love the whole prey items Hare Today offers! My dogs eat chuncked or ground all week so on the weekends, I like to give them a change by feeding whole prey - they definitely look forward to it! I only buy Hare Today... they are THE best!
My dog is thrilled with these cavies!
By Elizabeth on September 5, 2017
Kind of funny, I ate quite a few of these critters in Peru (cooked, of course!) My dog did not hesitate for a second, as she regularly catches and consumes ground squirrels, but I feel much better about her eating these since they're obviously in good condition, humanely euthanized, and frozen!
By Marta on May 15, 2017
My dog hasn't had guinea pig before so I did end up taking out some of the guts to help her out. She loved it! But it did have a lot of poo in its intestine, but that wasn't a problem because I removed them. The guinea pig was in great shape and had surprising a lot of meat on it.
Very clean looking
By jing on March 28, 2017
To be honest, I was frightened at the first look at the bag. I was expecting a meaty body without all the hairs. But after getting used to the look, I felt it clean and in a good shape. My cat won't eat it but I still think it is a good product.

My GSD, Sam, hasn't seen a whole guinea pig before so once these came in, I gave him one. He was confused at first what to do with it but he finally started eating it while we had dinner and he picked his guinea pig over begging for scraps! He loooves it. Whenever we walked past, he looked at us like, "you're not taking my guinea pig, right?"
Will definitely buy more in the future. They're really great quality and to Sam, super delicious!
very nice quality
By Amanda on June 23, 2016
First time purchasing cavies and I'm newer to raw but these were easy to prepare for my pups!
Cat likes very much
By April on June 5, 2016
Got two of the extra small guinea pigs. One was about 4.5oz, the other about 5.6oz. I gave my cat the smallest one. I removed the intestines first, then gave it to him. He chowed it down!
By Philip on May 16, 2016
When the box was shipped to me I pulled out the guinea pigs I had ordered. When I took them out of the bag they were clean and in excellent condition. I couldn't be happier with how well they looked and healthy at that too. My ferrets loved them! Thank you for high quality products!
Cavies for dinner = HAPPY!
By Wendy on February 10, 2016
My son's cat just LOVES the whole cavies, he practically does flips for them. They are gone in no time, crunch crunch and all I see is lip-smacking! Tried them for my two dogs, and they are a hit with them also! May we have some more, please?! Love your products and seeing how happy my critters are eating good raw foods.
By Debra on October 3, 2015
My guinea pigs always arrive clean, which is very important to me. I feel they have been well taken care of .
By Alyse on September 5, 2014
These were a bit bigger than I expected, perfect size for a few ferrets to munch on :)
By Alyse on September 5, 2014
The first couple of times I tried to buy these, they were sold out - glad they're back! They are a great size for my ferrets.
By Andrew on August 8, 2014
Perfect size for a 40 lb dog. She loved them! Ordered the smaller guys since these were out of stock!
By Lea on April 19, 2014
Guinea pigs are greatly smelly and delishus for my dog. They have a lot of fur and yummy lip smacking flavor claimed by my dog.
By Casey on May 13, 2012
My cats LOVE the extra small guinea pigs! And they're always so healthy-looking and clean. I also like the fact that the guinea pigs are raising in groups, rather than isolated one to a tiny cage as the big producers do. Just because I'm going to feed them to my cats doesn't mean that they don't deserve a little kindness and comfort while they're alive.
By Casey on February 9, 2012
These are cat-perfect! Shiny coats, clean feet, and good muscling shows that these guinea pigs were well cared for and had more room to move than your usual raised-as-a-feeder guinea pig. No signs of stress grooming either, which you get with some other suppliers.
