Oxbow Animal Health

Vet Recommended Herbivore Feed Products

Based on a family farm in Nebraska, USA,  Oxbow Animal Health is a worldwide supplier of premium life-stage feeds and supportive care products for small herbivores.   Oxbow's products are used and recommended by top exotic animal veterinarians across Australia and around the globe.


Essentials Adult Guinea Pig Food

(aka Cavy Cuisine)

1 x 2.25 kg bag of fortified pellets, designed to meet the nutritional needs of adult guinea pigs (over 6 months). 


Arguably, the world's best guinea pig pellet. Super high fibre, timothy grass hay-based pellets with stablised vitamin C!  

When fed according to the instructions, this bag will last for two months.

Did you know that grains, nuts and corn are not ideal for your guinea pigs?  They contain lots of starches and oils and have an inverse calcium to phosphorus ratio to what is needed. Most pellets and mixes have a lot of these fattening ingredients. These animals are designed to digest predominately hay, grass and leaves. 

So choosing an Oxbow pellet that is based on grass hay, not grains, makes good sense! 

We recommend a diet that has 3 primary components:

1.  75% grass hay/grass for fibre and nutrients - see Oxbow's Western Timothy, Orchard & Botanical Hays

2. Measured amounts of high quality, grass-based, fortified Oxbow pellets for fibre and life-stage appropriate nutrients, vitamins and minerals (too much and they don't eat their hay).

3.  A limited amount of appropriate greens/veggies (too much and they don't eat their hay).  


   Did you know that to stay healthy, guinea pigs must have a daily dietary source of vitamin C?  And in times of illness or stress, their need for vitamin C increases substantially. So ensuring this element of their diet is a critical issue.  That's why the expiry date on Oxbow's pellets is very important.  Vitamin levels diminish over time, so if your feed product doesn't have an expiry date, how can you know if the vitamin levels are still meeting their requirements?

If your guinea pig is under 6 months, pregnant or nursing, we recommend.... Oxbow Essentials Young Guinea Pig Food (aka Cavy Performance).

What is the cheapest way to get Oxbow Products?  Generally, its cheapest to buy at a clinic or shop listed on our website.  If there are no retailers near you, the next best option is to buy on-line and when possible, purchase more than one item at a time.  There are often postage discounts when you purchase more than one bag of pellets or combine with a hay purchase.  Treats will travel postage free if you add them to an order. Please send us a note with your post code and how many bags you are considering, and we'll find out the rate.

We generally ship on Monday, Wednesday and Friday via Australia Post.  If we have your order details and payment by about 11AM on those days, it will generally ship the same day.  Paypal payments are nearly instantaneous so if you want your order to ship asap - using paypal or calling us with a credit card are your best options.  We love payments via direct deposit and those generally take a day or two to clear.


Unfortunately, we cannot deliver to a P.O. Box at the quoted postage rates. Please always provide a residential or business street address. If a PO box is your only option, please request a postage rate quote from us.  In some locations it is a lot more expensive. 

Is it safe for the courier to leave the parcel at your residence if the property is unattended?  If so, be sure to leave us those instructions.  

Oxbow - the best gift you could ever give your pet!

Thank you for your business
