Choosing the Right Guinea Pig Hay 

You won’t find Timothy, oat, and alfalfa hay like this for sale in just any store.

We offer several different types of hay, varying in its use, fiber content, protein content, and fat content. With no two piggies built alike, you may need different types of hay at various stages of your small animal’s life cycle.

The Basics of Timothy Hay
Timothy hay is a popular type of grass hay, often considered the “gold standard” because of its nutritional profile. Our Timothy hay for guinea pigs is hand-selected for freshness and available in three cuttings.

Our 1st Cutting Timothy hay is for guinea pigs who need to lose a little weight, suffer from GI upset, and/or need to wear down their teeth. It’s rich with stem growth, but low on leaf. While this hay is high in fiber, it’s also low in protein and fat.

Our 2nd Cutting Timothy hay is the perfect balance for adults. With its bouncy stem and medium leaf, its standard levels of fiber, protein, and fat give this hay the right amount of nutrients for long-term health.

Our 3rd Cutting Timothy hay is for picky piggies who could use some excitement in their diet regimen, those who need to gain weight, and/or those who are experiencing mouth pain. This soft, green cut is low in fiber, but high in protein and fat. 

While Timothy is a wonderful choice for many, we also offer other options for guinea pigs, including alfalfa  and orchard hay.
