Oxbow Alfalfa Hay is a high-fibre legume hay with the same long-strand fibre found in grass hays, but with more protein, energy and calcium. This hay is perfect for young or lactating animals that need concentrated nutrition. The succulent taste stimulates the appetite of ill or post-surgical animals.

Alfalfa Hay should only be offered carefully to mature rabbits, guinea pigs,chinchillas, and prairie dogs due to the higher protein and calcium content. Many vets believe that animals prone to kidney stones, bladder stones or calcium crystals in their urine should always avoid alfalfa.

Alfalfa Hay can be used to help animals gain weight and elderly animals should be fed foods they enjoy, such as alfalfa, when considering quality of life. Alfalfa Hay can be used in small amounts as an appetite stimulant for thin or convalescing animals.

Feeding:
Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas under six months of age can be given Alfalfa Hay daily. After six months of age an animal should begin a gradual transition to 100% grass hay such as Oat Hay, Western Timothy, Orchard Grass etc.

Alfalfa Hay can be fed daily to growing animals as 25% of their total dietary intake. Adult animals should be limited to a SMALL pinch as a treat, though we do not recommend Alfalfa Hay be fed to those with any indication of bladder or kidney issues.
