Who makes it?

  • The Veg Patch Sackaroo is made by Rosewood and is part of their Naturals Range.
  • Based in the UK Rosewood are a leading name in pet products and sell their products globally.
  • Rosewood Naturals are celebrating their 10th birthday this year and were lovely enough to send us a Sackaroo to review.
  • You can visit their site at Rosewoodpet.com


Where can you buy it?  

  • Independent pet supplies.
  • Online (e.g. The Hay Experts).
  • Some good garden centres.
  • The Sackaroo is a new product; if your local pet shop doesn’t currently stock it they should be happy to order you one.



Price:

  • The Veg Patch Sackaroo retails for £2.99 
  • (I thought this was excellent value!)

Nutrition:

  • The Sackaroo contains 8 different types of herbs, grasses and veg.
  • Jute is completely harmless and won’t hurt your pets.
  • Chewing both the jute bag and the yummy contents can contribute to wearing down your piggies’ ever-growing teeth. 



Review:

  • I think this is a brilliant idea; simple but very, very effective. 
  • The inner contents arrive in a little plastic bag inside the jute bag to prevent them falling out the pre-made hole.To set up the Sackaroo up you simply empty the inner bag into the jute bag and hang in your pet’s house or run.
Sackaroo Contents
Sackaroo Contents
  • The Squidgypigs were immediately attracted to this product and I have to agree that both the jute and the contents do smell yummy!
  • Once they discovered there was goodies inside the Squidgypigs delighted in shaking, tossing and generally attacking the Sackaroo. It was like a piggy piñata!
  • My most powerful advice is if you have more than three piggies you should probably get 2 Veg Patch Snackaroos because as you can see in the following video they were very popular and caused a few arguments!
  • I haven’t yet refilled the Sackaroo but I’d imagine that any Guinea Pig would enjoy tearing out hay.
  • You could also add any of the yummy treats that Rosewood make.


Conclusion:

  • Both myself and the Squidgypigs adored this product.
  • At only £2.99 this is a product you could afford to buy frequently for your pets that you know they will enjoy and benefit from.
