Need a little something to perk up your animal’s hay appetite? To keep things interesting, oat hay is a great addition to your rotation. Serve by itself, or mix it with Timothy hay. Remember, our little animals naturally eat a wide variety of grasses, so they sure appreciate variety. “Oh, what’s this new texture? Mmmmm, different taste, too. Is this what love feels like?!”
Oat hay is yellowish in color, stemmy, and has some oat attached. (Longer hay strands, too, compared to other types.) The amount of oats and tops vary depending on the crop. It’s also high in fiber and protein, and the complete package for an animal who needs to gain a few ounces. If you’re wondering how oat hay compares to other types of hay, we’re here to help. We explain many of the different types of hay here, but to summarize, the most common types are Timothy hay (1st, 2nd, and 3rd cutting), alfalfa hay, orchard hay, and oat hay. Different types of hay have different characteristics, so it’s important to understand the profiles of each to meet your pet’s needs.
Small Pet Select knows hay. Inside and out. We have close relationships with many hay farmers in Washington State, and with more than 30 years of connections, you’re getting the best of the best.
We personally choose the hay we like. We go to the fields, see the hay and smell the fresh crop. We hand pack each and every box that’s shipped to our customers. Our eyes are on everything… from the field to your door. We work hard to keep you as happy with us as your animal is with our products. Happy animals = happy parents. And we love that.
Feeding Instructions: 80% of your friend’s diet should be great hay. Small animals need a constant supply of fiber to keep them healthy, so never let them run out. Ever. To keep the hay smelling nice (which makes it yummier and more enticing), make sure they get a fresh supply at least once a day.
Storage and Expiration Info: Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
