Rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs should always have unlimited amount of hay available to them at all times. Grass hay should be the most important staple in their diet. Timothy, orchard grass, brome, bermuda, meadow are examples of grass hay.

Hay and Rabbit, Chinchilla, Guinea Pig, Degu Dental Health

Rabbit's, chinchilla's, guinea pig's, degu's teeth grow constantly. That's the way Mother Nature intended as in the wild they consume lot's of herbaceous plants. Herbivores slice through grasses with the incisors and chew the hay with the back teeth (prolonged chewing promots tooth wear!). That's why it's so important to make sure your fur ball gets lots of loose hay.

 

Pellets are designed to be supplemental, unfortunately some pet owners think that pellets are the most important part of chinchilla, rabbit, guinea pig, degu diet. Animals fed mainly on non-abrasive commercial pelleted diet don't wear their teeth down properly. Unlike leaves and stalks that require lots of grinding, pellets are just crushed. This can result in overgrown teeth (teeth also grow faster on high energy diets), in consequence they may also become misaligned. Another possible problem is the development of sharp spurs that can cause painful ulcers.

Loose Hay Key Advantages Over Hay Cubes

  • Long strands of loose hay insure a superior digestive health
  • Loose hay requires more grinding from the molars
  • Acid detergent fiber of cubes may not be ideal; rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs do better on high ADF diet
  • Fecal water content may be lower if loose hay is not included in the diet
  • Loose hay provides enrichment and mimics herbivores' diet in in the wild
