I ordered the sample pack of hay from The Hay Experts for the pigs to try and it's just arrived, came with lots of freebies too :drool:

I've been reading on here that certain hays aren't great for pigs with bladder issues like readigrass maybe..? Toast is on a diuretic and cystophan to hopefully flush out a build up of crystals in her bladder so I'm now thinking maybe some of these hays aren't good for her?

The ones I'm concerned about are;

Oxbow Orchard Grass
(I gave her a little bit and she loved it)

Green Oat Hay

Readigrass

Are these 3 suitable for Toast then?

Also, these came with the hay, they mention for rabbits but are they suitable for pigs?

It's like Christmas day for the pigs :love:

Readigrass should be avoided due to the high calcium levels.

Orchard grass and similar cause problems for my bladder pig, but that doesnt mean to say it will for Toast.

Great oat hay is what crunchie gets as a treat, and she is fine with it.

Timothy hay is the lowest calcium and best for the staple hay for bladder piggies x

Thanks, I'll save the readigrass for Beans then :P
Do you know if the other treats are suitable for pigs?
