Ultra Premium Alfalfa Hay

Only 1 Ingredient: Pure Alfalfa
Alfalfa Hay has a thicker stem and lots of elliptical leaves compared to the long thin leaves found on grass hays. The leaves run all along the thick and pliable stock. While it’s commonly referred to as Alfalfa Hay, it’s actually a legume (beanstalk). Full of protein and nutrients, it’s perfect for growing rabbits between the ages of 3 weeks and 7 months.

Mature rabbits can only eat a limited amount of Alfalfa due to the high levels of protein and calcium. Transition your 7 month old rabbit off of Alfalfa Hay and onto a grass hay (such as Timothy or Orchard). In limited amounts, Alfalfa Hay still makes a great treat for adult rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas.

Importance of Transitioning From Alfalfa Hay

Alfalfa Hay is perfect for:

  • Rabbits younger than 7 months
  • Guinea pigs younger than 6 months
  • Chinchillas younger than 1 year
  • Treats for adult rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas

It’s crucial that you transition your small pet to a grass hay as soon as they are old enough, otherwise they’ll end up facing major health issues such as obesity, digestion and urinary tract issues, along with an increase risk of bladder stones. 

Veterinarians recommend that in order to keep a healthy diet, adult rabbits and guinea pigs should have a diet consisting of 80% grass hay and adult chinchillas should have a diet consisting of 75% grass hay.

Feeding Your Rabbit Based on Their Age

From birth until adulthood, it’s crucial that you feed your rabbit specific hays and other foods based on how old they are. Use the feeding timeline below to help guide you!

  • Birth – 3 weeks: Mother’s Milk
  • 3 – 4 weeks: Mother’s Milk, nibbles of Alfalfa Hay and Pellets
  • 4 – 7 weeks: Mother’s Milk, access to Alfalfa Hay and Pellets
  • 7 weeks – 7 months: Unlimited Pellets and Alfalfa Hay (plus see 12 weeks below)
  • 12 weeks: Introduce vegetables (one at a time, quantities under ½ oz.)

Once your rabbit is older than 6 months, start to transition them to a grass hay (such as Timothy or Orchard) and decrease pellets to ½ cup for every 6 pounds of body weight. You can also begin to slowly increase their green vegetables and give treats in moderation. The transitions will help keep your rabbit’s GI tract healthy and avoid obesity.

Stop Wasting Time & Money On Bad Hay

Tired of wasting time picking through bad hay just to find the bits your rabbit, guinea pig, or chinchilla will actually eat? We visually inspect and hand-pack every package of hay to ensure that you get fresh, green, fragrant hay of the highest quality. Your hay is always hand-processed, never machine-cut, creating nice long strands and less small pieces. You’ll no longer have to worry about your small pet suffering from irritated eyes or sneezing from excessive dust. We preserve freshness by bagging all of our hay inside the box. This helps keep it from drying out or absorbing unwanted odors.

My baby bunnies love this alfalfa. I personally like how fresh and green it is, and the fact that it has lots of leaves along with the hard stems. I use the leaf detritus as forage mix in the bedding.

Beautiful, Green & Yummy!

I have a very elderly rabbit rescued house rabbit (14 years old) who is still mobile, he is not a small breed, and he LOVES Rabbit Hole Hay's Alfalfa hay! We tried to other brands of alfalfa hay and it was awful, and he would not eat it.

He ate Timothy Hay his entire life until this past year. Because he has aging health issues he lost a significant amount of weight. After a visit to our rabbit savvy exotic vet it was recommended to us to mix Alfalfa hay with Toby's regular hay and after 6 months we took back to our vet for a wellness check and he gained some of his weight back, which is unheard of in a 14 year old bunny, our vet couldn't believe it!

Toby's protein levels were too low (kidney issues due to age) even though he was on the correct house rabbit diet.

Since adding Rabbit Hole Hay's Alfalfa hay to Toby's diet his protein levels are back in the normal range!!!

We have 4 picky house rabbits and they are all picky hay eaters, but they love Rabbit Hole Hay.

We use the Soft Timothy and Soft Orchard hay for the 3 other non-elderly buns.

Moral of the review is Rabbit Hole Hay is exceptional and *some* elderly rabbits benefit from alfalfa hay, but make sure your vet gives you the greenlight after blood work is done. Alfalfa hay is high in protein and calcium which can be harmful in high amounts in adult rabbits who aren't deficient and/or are overweight. Alfalfa will cause weight gain if given daily.

Thank you Rabbit Hole Hay! 🐰🐰🐰🐰💕

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experience with Rabbit Hole Hay's Alfalfa! We're thrilled to hear that Toby is loving it and benefiting from it. It's amazing that he gained some weight back, which is quite rare for a bunny his age.
We understand the importance of protein levels, especially for aging rabbits, and we're glad that Toby's protein levels are back in the normal range after adding our Alfalfa hay to his diet. It's heartwarming to know that our hay has made a positive difference in his health.
We're also happy to hear that your other picky hay eaters enjoy our Soft Timothy and Soft Orchard hay. We strive to provide high-quality hay that rabbits love, and your feedback means a lot to us.
Thank you for emphasizing the importance of consulting with a vet and doing blood work before incorporating Alfalfa hay into a rabbit's diet. It's crucial to ensure the right balance for their specific needs.
We truly appreciate your support and trust in Rabbit Hole Hay!

My bun loves this stuff

My bunny never got too excited over hay until I gave her this alfalfa hay. She was obsessed with this hay so I’m going to replace oxbow alfalfa with this one.
