Young rabbits need lots of fiber, as well as a good balance of protein and amino acids to keep them healthy and growing properly. Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit Food, which includes energy-dense alfalfa hay, was designed specifically to provide stabilized nutrients to keep young rabbits thriving. This feed also can be used to boost the nutrition of older rabbits with weight loss due to age or illness. Offer Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit Food in combination with Oxbow grass hays to ensure a healthy, balanced diet for young or active rabbits.
Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit Food is an alfalfa-based pellet created especially for the specific dietary needs of the young or active rabbit. Rabbits are strict herbivores and a diet high in fiber is essential for maintaining good health. Alfalfa hay is used to provide an optimized balanced protein source, containing the amino acids required for the growth and health of your rabbit.
Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit can be fed to older rabbits having problems maintaining weight due to age or illness. When supplemented with free-choice grass hay, Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit may also be fed to pregnant or nursing rabbits.
Young bunnies have different nutritional needs than those of adult pet rabbits. Oxbow's fresh-from-the-farm Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit Food fulfills those unique dietary requirements.
Always change your rabbit's food gradually to allow the digestive system time to adapt. Some rabbits are resistant to change, so time and patience are needed when switching feeds.
