OXBOW HAYS

High-quality grass hay is the cornerstone of small herbivore health.  Our extensive line of premium, high fibre grass hays meet the needs and taste preferences of small herbivores around the world.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HAY IN THE DIET OF SMALL HERVIVORES

DIGESTIVE

The fibre in hay facilitates the constant digestive movement that small herbivores require to maintain digestive health.

Disrupting this movement can lead to a number of gastrointestinal issues, some of which can be life threatening.

Providing grass hay most closely mimics the foraging activity small herbivores would perform in nature.

DENTAL

Small herbivores require constant chewing of hard, fibrous foods (i.e. hay) to provide necessary dental wear.

The teeth of rabbits and guinea pigs never stop growing, making it critical to provide a proper diet centred around hay.

A diet with insufficient hay can lead to dental issues, including disease and malocclusion.

MENTAL

Hay is not just great for the body of small pets, it is essential to their mental health as well!

Access to a variety of hay provides mental stimulation, keeping pets active, stimulated and healthy.

To maximise this important mental stimulation, try placing hay in as many locations as possible through your pet’s living space.
