"I am a small retail business that just started carrying your new Natural Science products. It has been received real well by our small animal community. I wanted to share a telephone call I received yesterday. We have a bunny rescue group that buys Oxbow products from us.  I gave them a bag of the new pellets and also some of the supplements to try on their bunnies.  They have some older bunnies that need some extra TLC in their group. Cathy from Hoppsy-Floppsy Bunny Rescue called me to tell me after two weeks on the new Natural Science products, their bunnies coats look fabulous, their spirits are better and they are more active!  They LOVE the new products." -Debbie Ringer, Patsy's Pet Stop, Totowa, NJ

    Really happy with this food
    Rating 5 out of 5
    I have had guinea pigs for 5 years now, and have been trying to get them on a good pellet for a long time. They would always turn their noses up to any pellet that was healthy for them- only pellets, because they loved the colored bits and seeds. They came with horrible food when I got them so they were hooked and would never eat anything else.

    I continued to add guinea pigs to my herd and always tried to change them to a healthy food because I didn't want to taint another pig coming into my family. :) However, they would always turn their noses up to it.

    Recently I added three new pigs. So I have six of them now- two of them are 4 years and 8 months old, one of them is 2 years and 9 months old, another one is 8 months old, another one is 4 months old, and my last one is 3 months. I really didn't want to taint all three baby pigs and get them hooked on the junk food my picky angels insisted on eating; so I looked around for a different food.

    I had tried literally every single brand except oxbow- not sure why I didn't try them because I have been using their hay for years, but I started looking into them. A couple of months ago my older girl had a calcium scare, which landed her in the hospital. It turned out to be the food, which was giving her to much calcium. I thought that because it said veterinary recommended on the product that it would be good, however it didn't even list the calcium levels which was worrying because a lot of food places do that when it is over the recommended amount.

    So I began looking at all the oxbow brands, and I was thinking about getting oxbow essentials, however I didn't like that it had grass meal... but I was willing to go with it anyways because it looked like a really good brand. When I was getting ready to buy it, I saw an ad for oxbow natural science adult guinea pig food. The first three ingredients were hay which immediately made me want to buy them. Another thing that sold me on these pellets was the rosemary and thyme. The junk pellets that I was feeding had that in them which made my girls love them a lot. I could never find any pellets that they would eat that had those herbs in them, so I was very happy to find this product.

    Hoping that my girls would eat it, I ordered some with my recent purchase of 50 pounds of orchard grass hay. It got here yesterday on the 4th, and when I opened the bag I could tell that they were really healthy and they smelled amazing. I was already in love with them and crossed my fingers as I was walking to my girls room. I was pretty shocked at what I saw; for years my girls have turned their noses up to any pellet that was plain, even any pellet that wasn't the one they had been being fed. With this pellets though, they went crazy, I thought they ate their other pellets really fast, but after giving them these I don't think that anymore. When I put the pellets in they all ran for the food bowl, and had emptied all four of them within 20 minutes. It used to take them all day to finish their pellets but not with these.

    I will be purchasing these pellets from now on, because they are my favorite, and better yet, my girls favorite. :) I really hope this product doesn't get discontinued ever, I know their are a lot of oxbow brands of pellets, and I am hoping that this one is selling and continues to sell enough to continue being made.

    Thanks for making such an awesome product; I approve and my super picky piggies approve. :)

    I've always trusted Oxbow products and the other day I drop by the pet store and got this for one of my adult pig. He is a fussy and choosy eater and he absolutely LOVES it.
