Feeding Directions

Growing Animals: Unlimited amounts
Mature Animals: Unlimited amounts

Botanical Hay can be fed free choice to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, prairie dogs and other herbivores as an alternative to timothy, oat hay, and brome. Free-choice means that the feed is available at all times. If they finish what is given, you need to give them more! Hay should not only be used for nutritional purposes, but also for mental stimulation and the promotion of natural foraging behavior.

Try feeding hay in new and inventive ways to increase consumption.

  • Rabbits like to eat hay in their litter box.
  • Fill a cardboard tube, basket or animal-safe toy with hay and place it in your pet’s favorite spot.
  • Put a layer of hay on the bottom of the cage and hide food/treats in the hay for foraging.
  • Put hay everywhere: the hutch, the corner, behind the couch, etc...
  • Offer a variety of mixed hays to tempt animals with sophisticated tastes.

How much do I feed daily?

It should be fed free choice daily. That means the hay should be available at all times. 75% of a small herbivore’s diet should be hay.

Oxbow’s Western Timothy Grass Hay is hand-selected by Owner John Miller himself. John is a fifth generation farmer who understands and recognizes quality hay. That’s why every bag of Oxbow hay is hand-packed, quality-assured and guaranteed to meet the nutritional needs of your pet.

Small Herbivores That Eat Hay

  • Rabbits
  • Guinea Pigs
  • Chinchillas
  • Tortoises
  • And others

Grass hay is absolutely vital to the health of small herbivores. It provides not only fiber, but environmental enrichment that mimics your pet’s natural habitat. As the caregiver, it is your responsibility to offer your pet hay every day.

Instructions: Offer Botanical Hay daily by blending with Oxbow’s Orchard Grass Hay, Oat Hay and Organic Meadow Hay.

Hay is a variable product because it is grown in natural conditions. Each season creates hay that will look, feel and taste different. To avoid a picky eater resistant to these changes and for enrichment, provide your pet a variety of grass hay. Try Oxbow’s Western Timothy, Orchard Grass Hay, Oat Hay and Organic Meadow Hay.

Storing Hay

Store your hay in a cool, dry location, out of direct sunlight and in its original packaging. No refrigeration or freezing is needed. If you choose to store in another container, be sure it has adequate ventilation.

    Botanical Hay
    Rating 5 out of 5
    My rabbit was trending towards GI stasis. For some reason, she seemed to lose interest in her regular timothy hay. My vet suggested switching her hay to a different kind. I purchased Oxbow Botanical Hay and my rabbit hasn't stopped eating it! Her GI tract has improved immensely and I was able to stop her medication. I recommend this hay for any rabbit. The herbs certainly sparked an interest in my rabbit and brought her GI tract back to health. Thank you Oxbow!
