What is timothy hay

Timothy hay is the most popular choice of hay for rat owners across the UK. We believe in it so much that it’s the only hay we offer! 

Our dust free hay has some amazing benefits for your rat’s health! It has the perfect balance of fibre and other essential nutrients which helps their digestive health, as well as promoting proper dental health for your rat. There is a reason why it is recommended by veterinarians and small pet experts all across the world!

Can Rat’s eat hay

Absolutely, yes! Hay should make up about 80% of a rats’ diet! We recommend that you feed your rat Timothy hay, due to the benefits it has over other types of hay. For example, Alfalfa hay, while it may be high in protein and calcium, it is low in fibre, which doesn’t help with digestive health as much timothy hay.
