Feeding Guidelines

Alfalfa Hay is most suited to young, growing and breeding small animals.

Small pets (like rabbits, guinea pigs, degus and chinchillas) are herbivores that thrive on a plant based, grass-led diet. Adequate forage consumption is essential and should make up most of your small pets diet (about 75-85%).

For full feeding guidelines specific to your pet see our Feeding Guidelines + Nutrition page.
