Small herbivores, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and other similar pets, greatly benefit from the inclusion of hay in their diet. Hay is a crucial component of their nutrition for several reasons:

Digestive Health:

One of the primary advantages of incorporating hay into the diet of small herbivores is its significant impact on digestive health. Hay encourages constant movement in the gastrointestinal tract, making it the ideal material to support digestion. This consistent activity helps prevent issues such as gastrointestinal stasis, a common problem in these animals. By keeping the digestive system active, hay helps maintain regular bowel movements and reduces the risk of blockages.

Dental Health:

Hay also plays a vital role in the dental health of small herbivores. It provides a continuous source of fibrous food that necessitates proper and necessary dental wear. The constant chewing and grinding required to break down hay fibers help keep their teeth in good condition. Overgrown teeth, a common issue in these animals, can be prevented or managed with a diet rich in hay.

Mental Health:

Grass hay, such as Blue Mountain Timothy Grass and Alfalfa Hay, closely mimics natural foraging activities for these pets. Placing hay in as many locations as possible throughout their living space and daily exercise area stimulates their natural instincts to forage. This enhances their mental health by providing mental stimulation and alleviating boredom. Mental health is an essential aspect of a pet’s overall well-being, and hay can contribute to a happier and more contented animal.

Feeding Directions:

To ensure your small herbivore receives the maximum benefits from hay, follow these feeding guidelines:

  • Offer large handfuls of Blue Mountain blended hay (at least the size of your pet’s body) into your pet’s home daily.
  • Timothy and Alfalfa hay can be fed in combination, especially for young, pregnant, nursing, or senior rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and other small pets, as this helps meet their protein, calcium, and digestible fiber needs to keep your pet happy and healthy.
  • Be attentive to any uneaten hay and remove it if it becomes wet, damp, or soiled to maintain hygiene and freshness.

Storage Instructions:

Proper storage of hay is crucial to maintain its quality and nutritional value. Follow these storage instructions:

  • Store hay in a cool, dry place to prevent moisture and mold growth.
  • Reclose the hay container after each use to help maintain its freshness and prevent contamination.
