Offering a variety of hay types daily enriches a small animal’s diet. It’s important to include a grass hay with a unique aroma and taste, such as Oxbow Brome Hay. The rich, cured smell and earthy flavor of this hay will grab the attention of pets, delight them and draw them in for more. The low protein, low calcium, high-fiber hay helps keep small herbivore digestive tracts functioning properly. Brome Hay, when mixed with other Oxbow grass hays, creates an earthy and nutritious grass hay blend. Unique Qualities: • Coarse Texture • Earthy Flavor Feeding Directions Growing Animals: Unlimited amounts Mature Animals: Unlimited amounts Oxbow Brome Hay can be fed free-choice to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, prairie dogs and other herbivores as an alternative to timothy, orchard grass, and oat hay. Free-choice means that the feed is available at all times. If they finish what is given, you need to give them more! Hay should be used not only for nutritional purposes, but also for mental stimulation and the promotion of natural foraging behavior. Try feeding hay in new and inventive ways to increase consumption. • Rabbits like to eat hay in their litter box. • Fill a cardboard tube, basket or animal-safe toy with hay and place it in your pet’s favorite spot. • Put a layer of hay on the bottom of the cage and hide food/treats in the hay for foraging. • Put hay everywhere: the hutch, the corner, behind the couch, etc…. • Offer a variety of mixed hays to tempt animals with sophisticated taste. www.oxbowhay.com

Not a Big Hit with Bunny

posted 6 years ago

I bought a bag of Oxbow Brome Hay to mix with his Timothy and Orchard Grass. He absolutely did not like it. He picked out all of the Timothy and Orchard grass and left a big pile of Brome hay in his hutch. It smells good, but not as sweet as Orchard grass or Timothy. I am disappointed that he didn't like it because it seems like a good, nutritious hay to blend with his Timothy.

Pros: Nutritious

Cons: Rabbit didn't like it

A different choice of hay

posted 6 years ago

My vet recommended Bunny Brome as an excellent alternative to the other hay choices. Although it's called Bunny Brome, it's good for all small animals. After struggling to find a store that carries it, I offered it to all of my guinea pigs. Some of them reluctantly ate it when no other hay choices were available, but given a choice, none of them selected it first. As with all Oxbow products, it was packaged nicely and was the contents was fresh.

Pros: vet recommended, fresh, healthy

Cons: least favorite of all hays, difficult to find

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
