Description

Support the digestive health of your small pet with Oxbow Natural Science Papaya Support Digestive Health Small Animal Supplement. Digestive issues are not uncommon for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small furry friends, but have no fear because Oxbow is here! This chewable supplement is made with premium ingredients including papaya and pineapple. These two ingredients, are natural sources of active enzymes—papain and bromelain—which aid in the digestion of proteins. With the addition of timothy hay, this supplement is also high-fiber to further help your pal’s digestion. Simply, break the tablet in half to release the aroma and either conceal it in your pet’s food, or crush it up and sprinkle it right on top!

Key Benefits

  • Made with real pineapple and papaya so you can rest assured that your petite pet is getting the quality ingredients she deserves.
  • Timothy hay provides an excellent source of fiber to help support a healthy digestive system.

    Not popular with my buns

    By on

    Tried this GI support in place of the green bagged 'cookie' style digestive supplements from the same company, as there seemed to be a back-order on them. Unfortunately, none of my rabbits seem to like this tablet style of supplements, and they either ignore them or barely nibble at. The cookie style ones however, my rabbits gobble up like they're, well, cookies! Going to give them to another bunny owner at work to see if her warren likes them, so they at least wont go to waste. I'm sure they're perfectly fine supplements , but they just arent for me.

    Rabbits refuse to eat

    By on

    After one month, both my rabbits refuse to eat this supplement. Based on other reviews I was hoping they would get use to it by now. I even tried crushing it and mixing with their pellets but it's left untouched. The tablet is much smaller than the other Oxbow supplements. It's also a bit pricey for a small package which I didn't mind as long as it benefited my rabbits. However, they're not eating it. It just didn't work for us.

    Brownie is my mini garbage disposal within the piggy guidelines. She will eat anything & everything that is offered to her. She gave these a try 2 times & by the third, she took a bite & that was it. She's done. We might try again later...

    Bunny loves them!

    By on

    I put this in my bunnies bowl each night with the little bit of pellets I give him and he always eats this first! I'm using it as a precautionary measure against gi stasis.

    Give your bunny some time, my bunny was being cautious and didn't eat it at first, but she loves this after her first try.

    Really like the supplement itself

    By on

    I highly recommend this product to other small pet owners. The only thing is if you have a picky eater like me they will only eat it sometimes.

    Bunny won't eat it

    By on

    The only reason I give this 3 stars is because my bunny puts his nose up to these. He is extremely picky eater

    My rabbits did not like these

    By on

    I was really optimistic that this would be a healthier alternative for my rabbits. Besides, the ingredients list two fruits that my rabbits love, papaya and pineapple. Wrong! My rabbits absolutely hate these supplements. I tried giving it to them in whole pill form and breaking it up into their pellets to get them to eat it. Neither option worked. Now I'm stuck with an opened bag of supplements my rabbits won't take. I guess it's back to sweetened papaya and dried pineapple that sometimes has added sugar. I'm really bummed out about this.

    Pretty good!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    The only reason I’m not rating this 5 stars is because when I received them, there was lots of dust and some broken tablets in the bottom of the bag, other then that small issue, my rabbits LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!
