A great mix of herbs and flowers for your guinea pigs to just Chew and Chill!
Just sprinkle a small handful each week on to their hay. This will encourage their natural foraging behaviour as well as increase their hay consumption. Help to entertain your guinea pigs whilst also giving them a treat; it makes the cage smell good too!
Whilst we have designed this hay topper with guinea pigs in mind it is also suitable for rabbits.
Each bag has a net weight of 45g and contains 20g Lemon Balm, 10g Lavender, 10g Chamomile Flowers, 3g Valerian Root, 2g Passion Flower.
Many edible herbs and flowers are believed to have health benefits. Guinea pigs are naturally prey animals which means they can exist in a high state of alertness and anxiety. This is evident by their large adrenal glands (the gland that produces fight, flight or freeze hormones). The herbs and flowers in this mix have been chosen for their calming benfits.
Lemon Balm is thought to reduce anxiety and improve cognitive function. Chamomile is thought to reduce anxiety and risk of heart disease. Lavender is thought to promote calm. Valerian Root inhibits the breakdown GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) therefore promoting calm. Passion Flower increases GABA in the the brain, promoting calmness. Passion Flower is also thought to relieve pain.
This product is designed as a complimentary foodstuff only. If you are concerned with your guinea pig's health please seek the advice of your vet.
