Our preferred products and basic rabbit care tips for bunny lovers and those considering adoption!
The first thing to consider when you adopt a pet rabbit, is proper nutrition! Nutrition is vital to the health and longevity of bunnies! Most rabbits require around 1/4-1/3 cup of rabbit pellets a day and unlimited timothy hay as well as 1/2 cup of safe veggies per lb of your bunny's weight for optimal health! Please adjust these amounts for large breeds according to your rabbits weight! Our brand is Oxbow for our rabbits and this is the brand we recommend for your rabbits health! Overfeeding pellets and treats should be avoided as your bunny can become overweight/obese and can also produce excess caecotrophs (these are produced as nutrition that your rabbit actually needs and eats, but are generally not seen!). Excess caecotrophs have a pungent odor and can stick to your rabbits fur causing what is generally known as 'sludge bottom' in the bunny community. So please limit those pellets and treats to a healthy amount! Rabbits under 1 year of age should receive unlimited pellets and then be gradually reduced and transitioned from an alfalfa based pellet to a timothy based pellet. As adults, alfalfa should be avoided so that your bunny does not produce excess calcium which can be very detrimental to your bunny's health. Alfalfa hay should also be used while your rabbit is under 1 year of age and adjusted in the same manner to a full timothy hay by the time they reach 1 year of age!
