Create a nutty-tasting and nutritious hay blend for your small pet with Oxbow Oat Hay Small Animal Food. Some small pets like Guinea Pigs, rabbits and chinchillas, need hay to maintain healthy digestion. In fact, hay should make up 75 percent of their diet. Along with digestion, hay keeps teeth trim and promotes natural foraging and mental stimulation. Oxbow Oat Hay Small Animal Food is high in fiber, low in protein and full of flavor, making it ideal for adult small pets. Feed unlimited amounts as an alternative to timothy, orchard and organic meadow hay.

Key Benefits
  • Oat Hay is companion forage that is similar in nutritional analysis to the western timothy. Your animals will love the immature oat grain that is contained in the seed head and will benefit greatly from the fiber in the leaf and stem.
  • Oat Hay is a good source of fiber and also gives variety to your animal's diet. This product also makes a good bedding alternative to wheat straw.
  • The stage of maturity at harvest determines the development of the seed head. If the hay is harvested immaturely, at the early bloom stage, the actual oat kernel is not mature. The seed heads consist primarily of oat husks, which are rich in fiber.
  • Hay is absolutely vital to the health of small herbivores. It provides not only nutrition, but environmental enrichment that mimics the animal's natural habitat.
  • Provides a long-strand fiber source that is needed to improve the digestive and intestinal functions by stimulating the digestive system. When animals are fed free-choice hay, it promotes their natural chewing behavior, which helps prevent molar spurs and other dental problems that are so common in these small herbivores.

  • bad batch of oat hay beware

    By on

    I purchased 2 bags of the oat hay small animal food and both bags smell moldy. they smell like they were packaged wet. my guinea pig will not go near this stuff. I have ordered this item before and was very happy with my purchase but these last 2 bags are very nasty and no good to me.

  • Good for a treat.

    By on

    My Chinchillas aren't too wild about it but my friend's Guinea Pigs go crazy for it. Oat Hay should only be offered as a treat so we just offer some every few days so they are rather happy to have a break from their routine hay.

  • Benny Goes Bonkers....

    By on

    My Benny who is a boar guinea pig, and Lucy, a sow guinea pig, both LOVE the Oxbow products. We use their Oxbow adult guinea pig pellets, Orchard Grass, Oat Hay, and also their Vitamin C chewy biscuits ;-) We also give them probiotics to assist in good digestion, and that is it! No veggies, too much sugar! We have a specialist Exotics Veterinarian who told us this was the best diet for them. Both happy and very healthy at age 2 yrs, each ;-) Thank you Oxbow!

  • Only store bought hay my piggies even like

    By on

    I say like, they prefer farmer provided timothy hay. One of them is always eating a bit out of the hay feeder and the other one will only eat it if it is on the large dish. Might be the Oxbow hay rack that keeps them from eating more.

    My guinea pigs absolutely love this hay, I still give them Timothy hay from oxbow primarily, but this is a fun addition that gets them extra excited for meal time

  • Piggies need hay, not straw!

    By on

    Normally I have no issue with any of the Oxbox Hay but for some reason every time I order the Oat Hay, it comes to me very yellow/brown and straw like. My piggies will not eat it and I end up having to go out and buy a different type (usually the Botanical or Orchard Grass). I would NOT recommend this hay.
