Alfalfa

$2.50 

"Medicago Sativa"

 (Cut and Sifted)

Alfalfa is also called "lucerne" in most other parts of the world.

It is a perennial flowering plant that has been cultivated as an important forage in many countries. It has been used as livestock fodder since at least the era of the ancient Greeks and Romans.   

Alfalfa is very popular among tortoises. It is highly digestible and high in protein, energy, vitamins and minerals but should be fed in moderation due to its protein content that will range between 15-20%. 

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. 

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.
