I've shared with everyone the wide variety of pet's we have and have had over the years. I just feel like the more we have the happier our home is. Each and everyone big and small are part of our family. When asked if I was interested in reviewing some of the Healthy Pet products, I knew these would be a special treat for the other family members!
I knew that even though we don't technically have a bunch of "small animal" pets, we've got such a variety that each product has a use for one or more of our animals. When you have small animal pets, they may seem easier to care for because they are usually contained in a tank or small critter cages. However, there are still tons of important factors you need to be concerned with.
Those little pets deserve to eat healthy and live long great lives too! Carefresh foods and hays contain real fruits and vegetables in each of their recipes. Your pet can enjoy a delicious meal which is naturally healthy. You can feel as confident as if you were feeding them straight from your own garden and fields. Each recipe is specially formulated for your specific small animals needs with the perfect size ingredients for optimal dental health too.
When it comes to the Alfalfa and Timothy hays, Carefresh "only use the first cut of hay because it provides ideal protein, fiber and fat ratios for daily nutrition, and it is slightly harder than other cuts to wear down and clean small animal’s ever-growing teeth better". Our rabbits were HUGE fans of the hay and guess who else enjoyed snacking on it...the chickens!
Bedding or litter being a major element of their environment. ökocat is made from 100% reclaimed fiber and comes in five different formulas depending on your needs. In clumping formulas for long hair cats who tend to get litter stuck in their hair and dust free for those rambunctious kitty's who kick it everywhere! Both formulas work great for my chickens as the ökocat is 500% more absorbing than normal litter. Made from "fallen timber and unused lumber", this lightweight litter is chemical free. It is biodegradable unlike clay litter so I can easily use this in my compost pile once cleaned out of the coop (or litter boxes).
Unlike traditional clay litters, I can actually use the litter in the bottom of my chicken brooder where it has a natural anti-microbial effect fighting bacterial growth and keeping my babies that much healthier! Plus with this being a dust free litter, pet owners have less mess to worry about! "Simply Pine™ absorbs cat urine 3X better than traditional clay litters". With all the same benefits as the ökocat, Simply Pine is also made from natural Northeastern pine.
