About Premium Quality Hay

Premium Quality Hay

Carefresh sources hay from sustainable suppliers, so that each harvested crop will meet the quality standards your pet deserves. Every batch is thoroughly inspected and carefully hand-packed, ensuring optimum freshness, minimal dust and a clean, natural scent.

Essential High Fiber

Veterinarians often recommend hay for small pets, to promote a healthy digestive system and to nurture natural chewing behaviors. Hay can provide necessary wear and tear on their teeth and also help with weight control.

They Are What They Eat

Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas should have unlimited access to pure and natural timothy hay every day. A diet consisting of 75% hay and 20% fortified food in a stabilized form is considered ideal, with all-natural treats like strawberries or apples given occasionally as a snack. Dark leafy greens can be a great source of additional vitamins and minerals, too.

The Sweet Smell of Hay

The second cutting of timothy hay, harvested at the peak of maturity, is usually considered the hay of choice for healthy adult rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas. It has nutrients in proper proportions for optimal small animal health, with the high fiber and lower protein and calcium levels your little pet needs to thrive. She’s also sure to love the soft, leafy texture and sweet aroma!

Acting Natural

Hay encourages healthy natural behaviors like foraging and grazing, which can play an important role in discouraging boredom, encouraging activity and promoting a sense of security. Even pets like hamsters, gerbils, mice and rats may enjoy a small amount of hay each week for nesting and enrichment, just be sure not to use it as their primary source of food.

About Carefresh

Carefresh has been a trusted brand for small pets since 1985. They make biodegradable and compostable, cloud-like small pet bedding using natural reclaimed paper fiber from sustainable sources. It is totally free from harmful chemicals and pollutants, as is their premium quality hay that they carefully and sustainably harvest. Carefresh is dedicated to keeping small pets dry, comfortable and healthy while protecting the future of the planet through responsible practices.

Questions & Answers

3 Customer Questions

Does CareFresh quarantine their hay, indoors, for the recommended three to four months (as a RHDV2 safety precaution)?
Answer by ChewyJun 03, 2021
Carefresh Timothy hay is stored indoors for the minimum 105+ days. Their supplier follows strict HACCP based Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) in accordance with USFDA regulations, recently receiving a SUPERIOR audit score. All hay batches are tested by a third party laboratory for any contaminants. All hay is safely stored indoors to ensure freshness and safety.

What state is this sourced out of?
Answer by ChewyJun 02, 2021
Carefresh Premium Western Timothy Hay Rabbit Food is sourced from Northwestern U.S. providers of the world's highest quality of hay and comes from the 2nd cutting which is most preferred by small pets because it has a finer texture with denser leaves that are more tender and healthier and higher in protein.

Which has more seed pods, first-cut or second-cut? Our Guineas love the seed pods and Oxbow always had plenty at first. Then not so much. Then we went with Kaytee and had the same problem. I'm looking for whatever has the most seed pods.

The new carefresh Timothy Hay is sourced from Northwestern U.S., providers of the world's highest quality of hay and comes from the 2nd cutting which is most preferred by small pets because it has a finer texture with denser leaves that are more tender and healthier and higher in protein. ​ The first cutting has more seedpods (think Spring blooms). It is also more leggy (stems). Second cutting is leafier (softer, more nutritious typically). It is soft and leafy with a sweet aroma they are sure to love.

Guinea pigs like it

My guinea pigs eat it, so that is a plus. Some hays they won't touch, but this brand they actually wheek for when they hear the bag. It's very dry and brittle, making it very dusty and messy. I do like that it is in "sections" so I'm not tearing a huge chunk out of the bag. I bought several bags, and 2 were okay and this 3rd one is the most dusty/messy. Also, because it breaks and is dry I make sure to feed them while I am there so we don't have any accidents, as my one loves to hide in it while snacking.

Hit or miss

I ordered this hay because our usual hay had burrs and stickers in it and ruined our fleece bedding. This hay smells different and two of our pigs won't eat it.

Holly my guinea pig

Well truthfully I was searching for another brand of hay because the one I was getting was not very abundant it was just very loose small blades of hay and you want those long large hay blades for the guinea pigs teeth , because they need that heavy chewing action so that they'll have good dental health along with good digestion and the nutrients also , so I seem to have found a much better hay product the Carefresh premium western timothy hay , and my guinea pig seems to really love the taste because she's eating allot more of the Carefresh timothy hay and I am very glad about that, my guinea pigs happy I'm happy and also the cost of this product is very good

Yummy (for my bunnies)

My two bunnies loved this hay! They ate it as soon as I put it in their hay rack. I personally enjoyed being able to pick up the hay from the bag without getting splinters in my hand!

Not recommended

Dusty hay, our guinea didn’t like it. This brand had bad reviews. But I gave a chance and tried it. My Guinea did not eat them. What a waste of my money. I will not buy it again. I do not recommend.

Eh.. good if you get a non dusty bag

The first 2 bags we had were great. The second 2 bags however are very very dusty. It poofs out into the air when you pull hay out. Now the room smells like dusty hay. I don’t think I’d purchase this again but my Guinea pigs don’t seem to mind the taste.

Horrible quality

With the price, I wasn't expecting something great, but this was absolutely horrible. The hay was extremely dry and powdery, I gave this to my bunnies for a week and they refused to eat it.

This was very dusty. My Rabbit was sneezing constantly any time she tried to eat this grass. Terrible product. I would have returned it if it wasn't given to me for free with another item. I do NOT recommend this.
