Oat straw


"Avena Sativa"

 (Cut and Sifted)

The oat is sometimes called the common oat, is a species of cereal grain.  

It is widely cultivated for its young seed pods and leaves, used as vegetables and for traditional herbal medicine. It is also used for water purification. 

Oat straw is a fine cut oat grass, also known as cat or wheat grass. Adding oat straw to a tortoise's diet is a great way to introduce baby and young tortoises to grass and hay. They get the taste and texture of hay mixed in with their favorite greens and fresh grasses.

Please keep always in mind when you serve your pet new food:

Some animals need their time to smell and try it since a lot of them have never smelled a flower or certain herbs before. 
We, however, found that most bunnies and other critters digged our flower mixes right away. :-)
Start with a 1oz bag unless you KNOW your pet loves that kind of treat since we do not offer refunds, exchange or returns on food.
Please note that depending on the time of harvest and weather conditions the color and size of the items may vary.

Item does not include bowl.


Please note that some of these herbs like dandelions, red clover and nettles contain a larger amount of calcium compared to other herbs or flowers. In their fresh state some of these herbs may be diuretic but if you have an animal with bladder stones or issues with bladder sludge we suggest to consult your vet before offering these as treats.
