Laporte Animal Clinic Teams With Oxbow Animal Health to Care for Your Guinea Pig

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - When it comes to caring for your pet guinea pig, nobody knows your furry little friends like those at Oxbow Animal Health. Proudly offered at northern Colorado's veterinary clinic of choice, Laporte Animal Clinic, Oxbow offers an array of food and supplies for guinea pigs in addition to a number of other small exotic animals including rabbits, rats, hamsters, gerbils, mice, chinchillas, tortoises and iguanas.

Laporte Animal Clinic is experienced in overall veterinary care, nutritional consulting and especially dental care in Guinea Pigs, Rabbits and other rodents. We strongly recommend an annual exam and dental check for all these pets to keep them healthy and discuss any nutritional or other concerns.

Oxbow Animal Health has been providing top-quality products and an overall care community for small exotic animals worldwide for over five generations. What started on the Miller family farm has turned into the Oxbow commitment to developing the very best in animal care products. Founder John Miller has created an internationally recognized brand that has become the most trusted name in small animal nutrition. Meeting the Oxbow standard of product is a rigorous task and includes ensuring that all materials are hand selected, personally inspected, routinely analyzed for nutritional value, test and retested before being shipped out and given to your little pet friends.

Oxbow provides a lengthy list of guinea pig care products including hay, guinea pig food, litter, hay accessories, treats, vitamins, as well as digestive, immune, joint and urinary support products. When it comes to guinea pig health, Oxbow understands that a lack of Vitamin C is the most common nutritional deficiency in guinea pigs, as they cannot manufacture their own. Therefore one of their most utilized products is the daily Vitamin C tablets which provide a reliable way to prevent disease and lengthen the life of your furry guinea friend.

Oxbow Animal Care also offers an unparalleled variety of all-natural farm-fresh hay and pellets. A complete and fortified high fiber pellet made from hay will help to ensure your guinea pig is getting all the vitamins and minerals they need to live a long and healthy life. The importance of hay in a guinea pigs diet is also quite essential. It is recommended that good timothy or other grass hay be given every day in order to ensure proper guinea pig care and keep their intestinal tracts running smoothly.

In addition to the top quality care products offered by Oxbow, they also offer pet care education, as well as a community for exotic pet owners to share their stories or voice their concerns. In 2004, the Oxbow Academy was created to seek and share knowledge pertaining to animal health and nutrition. It has developed and supported several programs created to educate and facilitate information among pet owners, veterinary professionals, veterinary students, and pet retailers. In addition to the Oxbow Academy is the Oxbow Community of pet owners and caretakers. A space for people to share stories and details about their pets, the Oxbow blog and Facebook page were created to establish a community amongst small pet enthusiasts.
