Grown Specifically for Small Pets

For decades, we’ve worked hand in hand with our family of farmers to grow premium hay that meets the specific nutritional needs and taste and texture preferences of even the pickiest rabbit, guinea pig, or chinchilla. In the field, our hay experts go the “extra acre” to evaluate key hay quality attributes including color, texture, maturity, and stem-to-leaf ratio.

High in Fiber for Digestive and Dental Health

Oxbow’s product quality team samples, grades, and nutritionally tests our hay to make sure it’s up to the challenge of nourishing your pet. This includes 3rd party nutritional and food safety testing, and organoleptic analysis which assesses odor, flavor, appearance, and texture.

Premium Oxbow Quality

Oxbow hay is gently combed to loosen it from the bale. Next, we carefully sort out smaller pieces, removing any natural foreign materials. Finally, we extract as much natural dust from the hay as possible & expertly sort the hay by hand for that extra personal touch.

    Oxbow Hay has been a staple in my guinea pig’s diet for quite some time, and I can confidently say it’s a great product that my furry friends absolutely adore.One of the key factors that makes Oxbow Hay stand out is its quality. The hay is consistently fresh, green, and fragrant, which is essential for maintaining my guinea pigs’ health. Knowing that I’m providing them with top-notch nutrition gives me peace of mind.Not only is Oxbow Hay high in quality, but it’s also highly palatable. My guinea pigs eagerly munch on it, and I can tell they genuinely enjoy the taste. The long strands of hay are perfect for their dental health, helping to wear down their teeth naturally.I also appreciate the variety of options Oxbow offers, from timothy hay to orchard grass and more. This variety allows me to cater to my guinea pigs’ specific dietary needs and preferences.Furthermore, the packaging is excellent. The hay is tightly sealed in a bag that keeps it fresh, preventing any loss of quality over time. It’s also easy to dispense without making a mess.The nutritional value of Oxbow Hay is exceptional, providing the essential fiber guinea pigs need for optimal digestion. It’s a crucial component of their diet, and I’ve noticed that my pets are healthier and more active since I introduced Oxbow Hay into their routine.In conclusion, Oxbow Hay is a fantastic product that I highly recommend to all guinea pig owners. It’s a nutritious, high-quality option that your guinea pigs will love, and it contributes to their overall well-being. I wouldn’t hesitate to continue using Oxbow Hay for my furry companions. It’s a definite winner!

    Great quality product! I order the 9lb box for my miniature fuzzy lop Darla every two months or so. She absolutely loves it and will clean her hay rack out to the last piece. The packaging is easy to store and keep tidy. I do wish they had an airtight resealable top, but that’s mostly because I buy such large quantities for my little bunny and would like it to stay fresher longer.The only true “downside” to I’ve experienced is that when comparing the price to similar products, it’s one of the most expensive. Since I don’t have much experience with these competitors (Darla liked this hay so much I never needed to shop around) I can’t speak on the quality vs. pricing sliding scale there.I want to address some of the reviews complaining that the product is not consistent in quality. I’d suggest that it is not the quality that changes, but the texture and body of the Timothy hay. Hay is harvested in “cuttings”, 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. For anyone curious, I’d direct you to West Meadow Rabbit’s video on YouTube on the difference between cuttings. Unless your critter is super picky, it shouldn’t make any significant difference to them or the hay’s nutritional profile. Otherwise, I’d suggest buying a hay product which specifies the “cut”.For example, my previous box resembled 3rd cut hay: it was darker in color, the strands were thinner, curlier and almost cotton-candy like, and the smell was potently sweet & like tea. There were few of the “fuzzy tops”, or seed heads, in this mix. My bunny likes this because of the sweeter taste and strong smell. My current box more closely resembles 1st cut hay: the stalks are more rigid, thicker, and a pale green color with lots of fuzzy seed heads that Darla goes crazy for. It just smells like normal hay, and does break into smaller pieces as you get to the bottom of the box along with a more noticeable buildup of dust. This is normal, especially when buying large portions as the fragile stalks get crushed in transit. My bunny enjoys munching along the straight stalks like we would slurp a spaghetti noodle.Again, both should be received well by your bunny so long as they aren’t super picky, and they shouldn’t have significantly different nutrition profiles so don’t let that deter you from seeing if they like this stuff! This brand and product as a whole is excellent, and in my opinion the change in texture is a good thing – no wasteful discrimination for superficial reasons (on a product which does not state cutting) and a natural variation.

    The smell and feel of this hay is very fresh and the guinea pigs love it. It is compressed into the bag so when you try to use it and get some out, it makes a huge mess but thats really the least of worries. You get quite a large amount and is definitely less expensive than buying at a pet store

  4. Morgan


    The only downside to the size is the fact that it is very very tightly packed. It is very hard to get out by the handful. But it smells wonderful very fresh. Very nice looking and a very good product.

  5. William Driscoll


    Seemed like a good value and a manageable amount… I used to buy in bulk .(like 45lbs+).. but that was a bit unwieldy for my space… I mention the Flavor question in the headline because they asked it on Amazon review… but I have only tasted it now… and it is rather bland, very crunchy, I do not personally care for it… would not buy it for my self, so for humans, I would rate it as 1 star… but it is as I expect hay to be… My Bunny seems to be very excited about it… so I will defer to him …. as he is the end consumer and why I’m buying it. Sir Louie Fluffykins has no complaints that he has brought to my attention… he thinks it’s the Bees Knees.

  6. Pimmed


    My bunny loves this hay, but it’s really important to note that one side of the bag is totally unsealed and only folded over. So when opening the box, if you don’t open it CAREFULLY much of the product can end up all over the floor, rather than stay in the bag!

  7. Osiris Corea


    I give my Guinea pig this brand because I trust Oxbow when it comes products for small critters. It’s definitely worth the price. I definitely recommend this product for the pets that eat hay.

  8. Kindle Customer


    I always buy the 9 pound size of this because it is a lot of seed heads and mostly dust free. I’ll buy the 25 lb size of the grass hay because the piggies love it but it is definitely dustier than 9 lbs.
