Take A Closer Look At Your Degus Diet
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Nutrition | Burgess Excel | Pet Care | Degus
Degus are sociable, speedy rodents have very different needs from other small furries and providing the correct diet is an essential part of keeping them healthy and happy.   In the wild, degus – who are native to northern and central Chile and live high up in the Andes mountain range – survive on grass and other green vegetation, bark and seeds. In fact, compared to other rodents, degus need to consume large amounts of fibre – at Burgess, they refer to them as ‘fibrevores’. That’s why hay should make up a large part of their diet. Each day, you need to provide a minimum of their body size in high quality feeding hay to enable their digestive systems to function properly. Chomping on plenty of fresh, tasty hay will also help your degus’ dental health by keeping their continuously growing teeth at the correct length and shape. DID YOU KNOW? Wild degus live in groups of up to 100, where they dig complex burrows to hide from pr.. [More] DEGUSDIET2019.jpg

Food Allergies Under Investigation
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Dogs | Dog Food | Cats | Burgess Sensitive
What’s the difference between a food allergy and food intolerance? And how can you tell if your dog or cat is suffering from one or the other? Itchy skin, upset tummy, weight loss? These can all be symptoms caused by diet – although there could be many other reasons why your pet is out of sorts and you should always ask your vet for advice. But if you suspect food could be the issue, where do you start?   Food allergies and food intolerance are two different conditions which often have similar symptoms. While they are both examples of adverse food reactions, food allergies involve the animal’s immune system while food intolerances do not.

Resin reactors are a brand new concept in reef aquarium water treatment being promoted by Hmahli Marine Life Support Systems, specially designed for use with the Blue Life USA line of resins. Chemical medias such as activated carbon, granular ferric oxide and aluminum oxide are an important tool in the control of unwanted substances and nutrients in the reef aquarium.   More recently, a new class of chemical absorption and adsorption resins are pushing the envelope of nutrient removing performance, and some of them have the added benefit of being regenerable. Over the last several years Blue Life USA has grown to become one of the country’s leading supplier of water conditioning medias. With the FX Advanced Regenerable Resins line, Blue Life is making it both cheaper and easier to condition your water while reusing media resins for removing phosphates, nitrates and general organics. The Nitrate FX, Phosphate FX and Organics FX are high capacity resins for removing s.. [More] BlueLifeMediaResins.jpg
