Alfalfa Hay Bites are one of our favorite GUILT-FREE treats! They are a wonderful sugar-free, high fiber treat ideal for training and foraging. While alfalfa hay should never be a healthy adult rabbit's primary source of hay, it's perfectly acceptable and even valuable as an occasional treat!
These are NOT a replacement for fortified pellets that are part of your small pet's daily diet as these are only compressed alfalfa hay and do not include vital nutrients that pelleted food contains. Hay pellets are not to be substituted for real hay.
