What Rabbit Pellets should you feed your bunny?

Pellets

Rabbits should never be fed muesli mixes as they cannot properly digest corn, peas and seeds. The types of mixes are low in fibre and will lead to dental issues and deadly digestive disorders and a large nutritional deficiency. Feeding these mixes will shorten the life span of your rabbit.

Avoid cheap based pellets as these contain a large amount of alfalfa (Lucerne) which can cause bladder stones and other issues due to the high calcium content.

Feed your rabbit non muesli mixes such as Burgess Excel nuggets, oxbow rabbit food, science select. These can be fed daily and in addition to hay and grass.

Feeding:

25 grams for a 1 kg rabbit, 37.5 grams for a 1.5 kg rabbit, 50 grams for a 2kg rabbit, 70 grams for a 3kg rabbit and so forth.For pregnant, nursing or rabbits younger than 6 months of age, pellets should be available all day due rabbits requiring the extra calcium for development. *Please note that these are guidelines.  If you have questions about your pet’s daily feeding regimen, please contact your veterinarian for more specific feeding information.
