Did you know?
Did you know that your pet needs a constant supply of hay in their enclosure? To remain healthy, your pet should eat a pile of hay the size of their body every day!
Add a pinch of alfalfa to make any hay combination even more enticing to your pet! Just remember that adult herbivores should only receive alfalfa hay in small quantities as a treat due to its high protein and calcium content.
