I bought a 3 month old female peruvian cavy last December. I'm basically new to this. I was given pellets by the store and my cavy seemed to like it. My stock ran out recently though and I had to buy another food product. This one has round small disc like pellets and colored crisps that look like cereals. My cavy eats it and then topples her bowl over when there's little left. Why does she do this?

It's pretty normal for guinea pigs to knock over their bowl. You may need to get a heavier bowl or get one that fastens to the side of the cage so she cannot knock it over. The bowl is being knocked over because she is standing on the side of it to get more yummies out, obviously she is enjoying the food. :)
