Feeding a balanced commercially prepared diet like Genesis Extruded Rabbit Food in addition to clean grass or legume hays is recommended.
Rabbits are uniquely adapted to digesting succulent vegetative matter and excluding indigestible fractions. Diet of pet or companion rabbits can be greatly influenced by the type of food provided. Too little fibre or too much starch can slow transit and lead to digestive disturbances. Excess protein and fat should be avoided, and modest supplementation with minerals and vitamins is recommended.
Providing nutrients to complement the hay and water base diet of the rabbit often relies upon a commercially prepared extruded feed. This format provides a vehicle for the delivery of additional protein, vitamins and minerals. It also creates a route to deliver other extra-nutritional ingredients that can improve host defenses and provide support to overcome digestive challenges. Extra-nutritional ingredients like probiotic yeast culture, prebiotic mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), and saponins from Yucca schidigera have been shown to enhance intake, digestion, and immunity. Genesis Extruded Rabbit Food provides a balance of protein, minerals, and vitamins plus the extra-nutritional assurance of yeast culture, MOS, and Yucca schidigera extracts.
Genesis Extruded Alfalfa Rabbit Food is a balanced diet developed to provide balanced nutrition for all rabbits, however may be best suited for young rabbits, active rabbits, and also senior aged rabbits (7+ years).
