Rabbits Diets

  Back

Because rabbits are grazing animals their teeth continue to grow throughout life. It is, therefore, important to feed your pet a specialist diet that contains sufficient plant fibre to keep the teeth from becoming too long and to maintain optimum health.

Vet Pet Rabbit Diet's crunchy fibre filled nuggets, when fed as directed and given with a plentiful supply of hay and some fresh vegetables, provide sufficient plant fibre to keep your pet's teeth in good condition and prevent them from growing too long.

In addition to this VetPet Rabbit Diet contains herbs to help digestion and fructo-oligosaccharide to encourage growth of friendly bacteria in the digestive system. It also includes other vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids to promote a strong immune system, health and vitality. The correct balance of calcium and phosphorus is included to help ensure healthy bones and teeth together with vitamin D to aid in calcium absorption.

When introducing a new diet to your pet it should be done slowly over a 10 day period. This is achieved by adding small amounts of the new foodstuff to their existing food and gradually reducing the level of the old food.

Feeding guide

It is important that you weigh your rabbit on a regular basis to ensure the correct daily amount is being fed. You should aim to maintain a consistent weight in an adult rabbit. We recommend you feed 20-30gm per kilo per day (Pregnant/ lactating does may require a higher dosage). For typical rabbit breed weights see www.alstoe.co.uk. If you have any concerns regarding your pets weight please consult your veterinary surgeon.
