Fresh Forage for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs
Fresh Forage for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs – Natural Goodness
For over 20 years I have picked fresh forage for our own rabbits and guinea pigs, and hundreds of holiday guests that have stayed at Hop Inn over the past 10 years. It’s been a lot of foraging, and frankly enjoyable.
We are very lucky to live in the heart of the countryside where there is plenty of organic forage. I have found the best places over the years, away from pesky chemicals.
Included in your forage box:
Fresh Hazel – Super for helping to wear down those consistently growing teeth. Great medicinal properties to help keep your friends in tip top condition. It is worth noting dried hazel has no nutritional value, but it’s still good for teeth, and a good boredom breaker.
Fresh Willow – Full of antioxidants too.
Dandelions – Not only a favourite for rabbits and guinea pigs they promote digestion, respiratory health, healthy liver, heart, and are a great body tonic. They are rich in calcium, potassium, iron and beta-carotent. Dandelions contain more iron that spinnach and more beta-carotene than carrots! They contain phosphorous, zinc and magnesium – it’s little wonder they love them. Rabbits and guinea pigs automatically know what’s good for them.
Plantain – It’s high in fibre and excellent for the digestive system – it’s another favourite!
Cow Parsley – The leaves and stems have an anti-inflamatory, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties.
Hawthorn – Lots of flavonoids and antioxidants, which is good for blood circulation.
Chickweed – Contains many nutrients including vitamin C, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
There will be other goodies in your box – ALL safe, edible and tasty.
