The pellets are timothy hay-based and do not include unhealthy additives like a lot of the pet store brands do. Paired with the box of fresh hay, this package provides a fantastic base for your rabbit’s nutritional needs. (Remember to provide unlimited fresh hay to your rabbits to ensure good digestive and dental health!)
It’s Rabbit Awareness Week! People in the UK can find free rabbit vet clinics in their area to get their rabbits a full health check.
This week also coincides with a new study about rabbit food conducted at Edinburgh University. Researchers have confirmed that muesli-style rabbit food cause major dental and digestive health issues in rabbits. The study provides a compelling argument that pet stores should stop carrying muesli-style products. According to Professor Anna Meredith, who conducted the study, “Vets have suspected for a number of years that feeding muesli-style foods could lead to health issues in rabbits, and now we have the proof.”
