Petlife Oxbow Orchard Grass Hay is great to feed to guinea pigs, rabbits, prairie dogs, chinchillas as well as other herbivores. It is a good alternative to timothy, brome and oat hay.

To increase consumption try feeding hay in alternative ways and using inventive methods:
Put hay in a rabbit's litter box, which is where they like eating. Fill a toy, a basket or a cardboard tube with hay and put it in your pet's favourite place. Layer some hay with treats or food hidden in it at the bottom of the cage for your pet to forage.
Place hay everywhere around your pet's cage. Hay should be a free-choice daily, available at all times and topped up if required. A small herbivore’s diet should consist of 75% hay.
