Orchard Grass small animal food is a perennial cool season grass with flat leaf blades. The leaves vary in color from green to bluish-green depending on the maturity of the plant. The lower surface of the leaf is not shiny; and leaf sheaths can be somewhat rougher to the touch than timothy.
Orchard Grass small animal food is recommended by veterinarians for small herbivores due to the nutritional content. Orchard Grass small animal food can be mixed with other grass hays when feeding your pet. This is encouraged because animals seem to like the variety. Mixing your grasses will encourage them to eat more hay, which is beneficial to the health of the animal.
Hay is absolutely vital to the health of small herbivores. Orchard Grass small animal food also provides a long-strand fiber source that is needed to improve the digestive and intestinal functions by stimulating the digestive system. When animals are fed free-choice hay, it promotes their natural chewing behavior, which helps prevent molar spurs and other dental problems that are so common in these small herbivores.

Mature Animals: Unlimited amounts
Orchard Grass can be fed free choice to rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, prairie dogs and other herbivores as an alternative to timothy, oat hay, and brome. 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 not only be used 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.
