Make life easier and save money by using Guinea Pigs & Small Animals – Hay bag!
Guinea pigs are natural herbivores, who would spend their time foraging and grazing in small herds in the wild. Their teeth are continuously growing, which is one of the reasons why they need plenty of roughage to chew; this wears down their teeth and helps prevent serious dental problems. Providing sufficient fibre in their diet is also very important for both their gastrointestinal system and general health.

What hay should I feed my guinea pigs?
Guinea pigs don’t usually overeat, but it’s important to provide the proper balance of pellets, hay and fresh vegetables and of course healthy treats in moderation.
Provide an unlimited quantity of fresh hay every day. Guinea pigs need continuous access to hay to aid their digestion and limit the growth of their teeth. Types of hay most recommended are Timothy, Oaten, Wheaten, Pasture, Paddock, Meadow or Ryegrass hay
Guinea pigs should not be fed Lucerne (alfalfa) or Clover hay, as these are too high in protein and calcium.
