1KG Timothy Hay for Small Animals
Timothy Hay, is an important staple in the diet of rabbits. The constant foraging and grazing encouraged by hay helps to keep them physically active and mentally stimulated. It also helps to wear down their teeth while the long strand fiber helps to keep their digestion regular and functioning properly.
Timothy Hay should be a mainstay of their diet and can make up as much as 80-90% of their food intake.
Alfalfa hay is much higher in protein and calcium than Timothy hay, which is why it’s often given to baby buns to help them grow big and strong. The rich nutrition facts of alfalfa hay give these little ones everything they need to grow into healthy, happy bunnies.
The higher calcium levels in alfalfa hay, though, can actually be dangerous for an adult bun if they’re fed too much. Bunnies metabolize calcium and get rid of the excess in their urine, but this can cause urinary stones if they’re getting more than they need. Alfalfa hay has about 1.2% calcium, while Timothy hay only has 0.4%.
