Rabbits are designed to eat large amounts of high fibrous food. Hay should be 80% of your rabbit’s diet.
The importance of hay cannot be overstated: • Hay keeps cecal flora in balance – it promotes a healthy gut • The repetitive, rapid chewing movement of eating hay helps maintain dental health • Hay provides a key component of nutritional needs • Hay helps prevent fur blockage • Hay satisfies natural snacking and chewing urges • Hay encourages natural behaviors
The most common rabbit health problems are gastrointestinal issues and dental disease. Feeding 80% hay is preventative health care. We have an extensive range of eating hays. Timothy hay from the UK and North America - great for keeping those back teeth in order. We have Italian Ryegrass for the fussy eaters in two types: fine and gold and Big and Stalky or if you are not sure then try one of our blend mixes. Then there is our Meadow hay available in two types- Sussex which is a course hay with nibbly bits or So soft probably the softest hay ever with a rich sweet smell. To complete the range we have Freeze dried grass, hay cookies, oat chaff and 1kg hay blocks- which are great for putting in a hay rack for when you have a few busy days.
