Oxbow’s Essentials is a delicious treat for your guinea pigs that you will feel good about feeding them. It is made of Timothy grass meal and gives them the fiber that adult guinea pigs need for good digestion. It also contains a lower level of protein and calcium and is lower in calories than the pellets that you are probably used to feeding.
The Oxbow Essentials is perfect for adult animals because they don’t require the same nutrients as younger animals. That’s why it is perfect for guinea pigs a year old or older. It includes vitamin C, and is the perfect calcium to phosphorus ratio for adults to promote a healthy system. It comes in 5 pound and 10 pound sizes, and should be combined with free-choice fresh grass hay like Oxbow’s Western Timothy hay.

Mature guinea pigs (over 1 year): Feed 1/8 to 1/4 cup pellets daily in addition to unlimited grass hay.

Choose from Oxbows Western Timothy, Orchard, Oat or Bunny Brome grass hays to provide additional natural fiber. Cavy Cuisine is not intended for growing, gestating or lactating animals. Feed Cavy Performance to guinea pigs requiring a higher level of nutrition.
