    Benefits of Hay for Small Animals

    Content Courtesy of Ware Manufacturing

    Ever wonder why your favorite herbivore consumes so much hay? Well, that is because fresh hay is absolutely essential to their overall health and happiness. Rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs are considered true herbivores (or fibrevores) because their digestives systems depend on fiber-rich foods like Timothy Hay. They require a constant source of fiber to keep their digestive systems working properly. Veterinarians suggest that hay make up 80% of your small pet’s daily diet. Not only will this keep their tummies happy, it will also help maintain their dental health.

    Constant chewing, grinding, and munching is must for your furry friends. Rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs have open rooted teeth, which means their teeth never stop growing. Hay provides the perfect outlet for healthy chewing activities that file down your pet’s teeth and safeguard against life-threatening dental problems.

    And finally, always keeping your herbivores’ home stocked with hay provides them with an outlet for play and combats cage boredom. Most owners will agree they do not like keeping their pet in a restricted area for extended periods of time, but this is a reality of small animal ownership. The cage is for their safety, so make sure to provide them with plenty of entertainment options while they are inside. Hay can be incorporated into your small animal’s favorite toys and be mixed with other delicious treats. Don’t be afraid to get creative with how you present this essential nutrient to your pet!
