Product Review: Oxbow Oat Hay

Timothy hay should make up the majority of your piggy's diet, but sometimes it's good to mix things up a little. On that note, we're going to review Oxbow's Oat Hay.
Oat Hay? That's different from what we usually eat.
Hmm... That's different.
Lola looks really content with her face buried in a dish full of oat hay. I'll just leave her to it.
We'll give Oxbow's Oat Hay 4.5/5 stars. I liked it, but Lola fell in love with the stuff. She keeps asking me if the humans are going to buy this stuff again (as if I can predict what those silly humans are going to do!). By the way, if you're wondering how often you can feed your guinea pig this stuff, we're not 100% sure. Oxbow's website says "unlimited amounts", but someone at says 2-3 times per week. It's probably better to err on the side of caution and only give it to us 2-3 times per week. If you really want to do your research, you can check out the ratios of calcium to phosphorus and other technical stuff that a guinea pig like me doesn't really understand at guinealynx.


  1. Oliver and Reese scored at the pet store last week... Free Oxbow Timothy with a bag of Oxbow food and free CareFresh food with a bag of Carefresh bedding. They eat the CareFresh food like crazy, they will finish a bowl in nothing flat. I use it for a treat, not their daily food because of that!

  2. How did you get your Oxbow stuff for free?

    Have you ever tried Kleenmama's products? The humans ordered some hay from them, and we're looking forward to trying it.
