A guide to a happy life
It is what we don’t put in to Selective that is important too…
Have you checked the label on your rabbits’ food lately? Take a look, because some rabbit foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in an older rabbit’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too.
Feeding Selective for the first time?
If you are feeding Selective 4+ to your older rabbits for the first time, make sure you change from one food to another, gradually over 10-14 days. At first, you should mix a small amount of Science Selective 4+ with your rabbits’ current food, slowly decreasing the old diet, whilst gradually increasing the quantity of Selective. A sudden change in diet can cause digestive upsets – even when you are changing to a higher quality food – so take care!
If your rabbits are used to a sugary diet, you may find it takes them a while to change, but persevere as it will help to benefit your older rabbits’ health in the long term.
And don’t forget fresh hay and water! Rabbits should have an unlimited supply of both at all times. You can find out more about our Selective Timothy Hay here.
