Rabbit Hole Hay 1st Cutting Timothy Hay Review

Hay

 

We recently moved to a more rural area, and OUT of a subdivision.  Which is great because Goose has more room to play and we have more room for our dogs and a garden, and a few other animals.  This year we added chickens to our list of pets, and they have the added benefit of providing us with eggs.

This is Mailman
This is “Mailman” and one of the hens. At about 6ish weeks.

I had never had chickens, so I did a lot of research, and I knew that they would need an area to nest, and some bedding type stuff to make a nest out of.  We went through A LOT of stuff to find things that they would like to nest and lay eggs in.

They started out laying eggs beside out AC/Heating Unit. That worked until our unit died, and they didn’t like the repairman messing in their area.  Next, they discovered that they could lay eggs in the tomato plants.  That stopped when I started picking the tomatoes. Finally they decided to start laying eggs in their pen. Mostly in the grass clippings, but once the grass clippings would blow or wash away, they would go back to laying in random spots.  So I decided to try some rabbit hay.

I found some timothy hay at rabbitholehay.com that they LOVE.  I got a 1lb box to review, and it has held up to my crazy chickens.  Now, the timothy hay that I got is meant for rabbits, and though I don’t have rabbits any more, I thought it was worth a try for the chickens.

Gerdie
This is the rabbit I had for a very long time named Gerdie.

I got the first cutting, which means the hay is a little more stiff and has more of the seed head things on it.  If I still had my rabbit, this would be great for her teeth, and it would provide her with more nutrition than the 2nd or 3rd cutting.

Overall, I am impressed with the quality of this hay.  My chickens love it.  I do wish I still had a rabbit so that the rabbit could try the hay out, too.

Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover Review

betta bridges tear stain remover

To me, keeping our pets safe from unwanted chemicals is almost as important as keeping those chemicals away from our children, and when we got Sophia last year, I knew we were going to have some challenges, but I never imagined we would have problems with face stains with her.

betta bridges tear stain removerWhen I first realized that were were going to have issues when Sophia and her tear stains, I looked into products at the pet store.  I was really concerned about some of the ingredients that claim to remove the stains.  Some had hydrogen peroxide, which you as you may know, should NEVER be used in or around the eye, and others had antibiotics that could cause problems of their own and has to be ingested.  When I first saw Betta Bridges Pet Tear Stain Remover I was very pleased to see that this tear stain remover contains nothing that will harm your dog. You should always avoid the eyes when using Betta Bridges tear stain remover, but it really makes me worry less since I know that the ingredients are all natural and non-toxic.

Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain RemoverThe best way to use Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover is to take a cotton ball and pour 1/2 a cap full on it.  Dap gently around the eye and muzzle or anywhere there is staining. Sophia doesn’t mind really anything, so I am able to just sit her on my lap and just gently rub that area with the cotton ball.

After we’ve been using Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover for two weeks.

As you can see there has been quite a bit of change we started using the Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover two weeks ago.  I think the more stained areas are just going to have to grow out and then be cut off.  I am going to finish this week of using Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover everyday and then next week start with the once a week thing.

Overall, I have been very please with how well Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover has worked for Sophia.  I have never had to deal with tear stains with any of my other white dogs, so this was a whole new experience for us.  I am so glad that I found Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover.

If you are battling tear stains on your pup, I would really suggest looking into Betta Bridges Pets Eye Tear Stain Remover.  You can find them on Amazon (PRIME!!!), right now, one 8oz bottle is about $20.  Yes, I realize there are less expensive products out there, but with how little you use, and how well it works, I feel the cost is justified.  Disclaimer
