The Oxbow Way


Simply put, education is in our DNA.

In our earliest days, proper care and nutrition for small animals weren’t widely understood and quality nutrition options were lacking.  In those days, we worked with top exotic veterinarians and nutritionists to educate pet parents, retailers, and even the professional veterinary community about the value and importance of species and age-appropriate nutrition for small herbivores.  

Today, we are proud to support present and future animal health professionals alike through a series of lasting educational initiatives, including programs, scholarships, and research.  We continue to partner with top exotic veterinarians and nutritionists to help shape the landscape of small animal nutrition.  In the academic setting, we’re actively engaged in landmark research aimed to advance animal health and care now and in the future.  Key Oxbow educational initiatives include:
