Bill and Laurie Gordon are passionate about two things: small pets and hay. They know that rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas need to eat a diet that includes a high percentage of hay in order to stay healthy. Where the Gordons live, near Ellensburg in Washington state, is one of the best hay growing regions in the country, and they are connected to some of the best timothy hay producers in the USA.
The fiber in hay is essential to a rabbit’s digestive system. If bunnies don’t get a regular supply, their system will slow down, which can lead to fatal gastrointestinal stasis. The trouble is, not all hay is attractive enough for rabbits to want to eat. That’s why the Gordons started up their online company, Small Pet Select, to make premium quality timothy hay available on a regular basis.
If you take a look at their hay — as well as smelling it — you can see how very different is is from some of the hay you see in pet stores and feed stores. It’s green, not brown or yellow. It smells sweet and fragrant. There is no dust or mold. The stalks are pliable – they don’t break or crumble when you bend them. And Small Pet Select timothy is clean, with no foreign matter like soil, stones or other plants. [Footnote: we once found a flattened dead mouse inside a bale of hay we bought from a feed store. Ewwww!]
By sourcing the very best quality timothy hay for rabbits and other small pets and shipping it in a protective corrugated packaging, these issues are overcome. Small Pet Select only chooses the very highest quality of hay specifically for small animals, and because their hay is shipped in a corrugated box, as opposed to plastic packaging, it stays fresh, juicy and palatable, meaning that rabbits enjoy eating it and therefore will take in enough on a daily basis to maintain good digestive and dental health.
Another huge advantage of feeding small animals top quality Small Pet Select timothy hay is that they eat all of it. This means wastage is brought down to a minimum, providing owners with the maximum value for their money.
