Guinea Pig Hay

Hay is the most important part of your guinea pigs’ diet. Our ultra premium, long stem and dust free hay is sourced from the lush fields of Canada and is the perfect addition to your guinea pigs’ diet. It provides essential fibre, which aids in digestion as well as helping maintain dental health by providing natural chewing behaviour. Forget feeding processed pellets that don’t provide your guinea pig what they need to stay healthy. Don’t feed them cheap hay filled with nasty dust that can damage their airways and affect their breathing. Instead feed Nibble&Gnaw to make sure your guinea pig lives their happiest and healthiest life!
