Wagg Carrot Sticks
Advantages: Keep your rabbit/guniea pig with healthy teeth and bones!
Disadvantages: There is a large amount of the treats which isn't good if your pet decides they do not like them!
Recently I have bought a pet rabbit, Peter. He is very spoilt by all of the family. My mother was doing the weekly shop at Asda when she came across these Waggs Carrot sticks, so she decided to purchase them for Peter. They cost £1.23 at Asda however they are available in other stores such as Wilkinsons.
The Carrot sticks come in a cardboard box with a inner bag with 100g of the Carrot sticks in, this bag helps to keep the sticks fresh. The box is split into the colours green and orange I am guessing this is to represent the colours of the carrot and its stalk. There is large bold white writing saying 'Wagg' which is the brand. Then there is the same size red bold writing saying 'Carrot Sticks' this is very eye catching and stands out. Also on the front of the box is a small cut out in a triangle shape, this shows then the treats through the plastic bag they are in. Also there is pictures of a guinea pig and a rabbit on the front of the box this is because it states that these treats are specifically for Rabbits and Guinea pigs. The actual Carrot Sticks are orange and are a small quite thin cylinder shape.
What do these little treats contain?
The side of the box gives the information such as ingredients and analysis. These Carrot sticks have ingredients such as Maize, Wheat, Carrot, Limestone and Sunflower oil in. These small treats have 8.5 Protein, 4% Oil, 2.5% Fibre, 4.5% Ash and 1% Calcium. I think this is a great advantage as it lets you know exactly what you are giving your pet!
What do they claim to do?
The product claims to be a crunchy tasty treat for Rabbits and Guinea pigs. However I do not think Peter agrees with this claim. I often give Peter a Carrot stick when he is out playing however he often just leaves it. Sometimes he will go back and eat a little bit but never does he finish them. He would much rather real carrot or other types of treats, when he is given other treats they are gone before you know it.
Also the product claims it has added calcium for healthy teeth for your pets, so I do try to make Peter have a little bit to make sure his teeth are healthy however I am going to try different product. Also it claims to have added phosphorous for strong teeth and bones. But I am sure I will be able to find this is a different product as Peter seems to shove his nose up at these small treats most of the time no matter how long I leave them out for him.
The product also has a feeding guide. It recommends you feed these Carrot sticks any time as a treat. Also it tries to tell you to buy all Wagg Rabbit foods but I do not think Peter would be most pleased!
Peter seems very disappointed with these treats as usually he is a greedy guts and is the first to eat whatever is put in front of him. I will definitely not be buying these ever again. I would much rather buy a different product to help give Peter healthy teeth, bones and other products for him to wear in his teeth.
Thank you for reading my review.
Summary: Certainly not my rabbits favourite. I will not be buying this product again.
