Round Out Your Rabbit's Diet

Content provided by Oxbow

Your rating: None

A diet of mostly grass hay provides the fiber necessary to avoid health problems. Add fortified, uniform pellets daily to round out your rabbit's healthy diet.

The importance of rabbit pellets
Fortified balanced feeds, in the form of uniform bite-sized morsels, assure that your pet is getting all the vitamins and minerals required in combination with hay, healthy treats and fresh water.

Compact Nutrition
Pellets (otherwise called "fortified foods") contain a combination of ingredients to supplement hay with nutrients—beneficial fats, carbohydrates and proteins, plus vitamins and minerals—to assure a balanced, healthy diet. It's a convenient, conscientious way to make sure you are providing all the foods your pet would get in this natural habitat, and more! Fortified foods should make up 20% of your pet's diet.

Rabbit Treats are Terrific!
Like humans, herbivores get bored with the same old thing! Treats also help you bond with your pet, but remember that too many will make them refuse basic foods and rob them of nutrition.
