Orchard Hay by Oxbow
You should know that hay is the number one food in the diet of our dear rabbits. Hay helps your rabbit’s gastrointestinal tract to function properly. It is also necessary for tooth wear. Indeed, rabbits’ teeth grow continuously and only the silica present in hay wears down teeth efficiently. By providing your rabbit with good quality hay at will, you also promote natural chewing behavior and help prevent all the dental problems that are so common in these small herbivores.
Oxbow Orchard Grass Hay is a dactylis hay, an orchard grass hay with a fruity flavor that is recommended by veterinarians. With a high cellulose content of 32% and low protein and calcium levels, “Orchard Grass” hay, plays a key role in the diet of rabbits and small pet herbivores. Its long fibers are essential for stimulating digestive motility, preventing obesity, and contributing to the proper functioning of the urinary system. Dactylis hay is the most recommended hay by veterinarians for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small herbivores. Its pleasant smell encourages its consumption.
A high-fiber diet also reduces the frequency of abnormal loose stools, GI stasis and bloating. Hay consumption is essential to the good health of small herbivores for two reasons.
- First, it provides a source of long fiber that is essential for improving digestive and intestinal function by stimulating digestive motility.
- It also provides a source of environmental enrichment replicating the natural living conditions of the animal. The hay should not be used only for its nutritional intake but also because it promotes in your pet a natural behavior that participates in its well-being.

How much hay should I feed each day?
Personally, my 7 rabbits have access to their hay 24 hours a day, it is also interesting to mix the hays to have different nutritional contributions. The litter box with hay rack allows you to distribute the hay as well as the rabbit to relieve itself at the same time. Leave a bowl of fresh water available for your rabbit.
