Oxbow Alfalfa Nibbles Hay - 15oz
Alfalfa is very nutritious, full of fiber, energy, protein, calcium and other nutrients.
Bunnies will love alfalfa, so it's a great thing to mix into their other grass hay, in moderation.
Young bunnies and guinea pigs under the age of 6 months can be given alfalfa daily. Starting at six months, a transition should gradually be made to free choice grass hay and alfalfa should be given as a high fiber treat.
If you rescue a bunny that is thin and weak, Alfalfa is an excellent food to entice them to eat. Alfalfa will promote weight gain and give a nice bloom to their fur. Often rabbits recovering from surgery are reluctant to eat for various reasons. Alfalfa is a very good appetite enhancer and will help your pet recover more quickly. Elderly rabbits, during the last stages of their life, often have low appetites. It is more important at this stage to offer foods that they enjoy.
Since Alfalfa is high in calcium (1.25-1.75%), animals that are prone to kidney or bladder stones or crystals in their urine should always avoid alfalfa. A healthy animal, that does not have urinary problems, can occasionally partake in an Alfalfa treat. Like all treats, they are to be given infrequently and in small amounts.
