Collection: Rabbit Pellet & Hays

Rabbit hay and pellets are important dietary components for domestic rabbits. Here's a short description of each:

Rabbit Hay:

  • Rabbit hay is a type of forage that is high in fiber and low in protein, making it an essential component of a rabbit's diet.
  • It helps maintain a healthy digestive system by promoting gut motility and preventing blockages.
  • Hay also provides dental benefits by wearing down a rabbit's constantly growing teeth.
  • It comes in different varieties, such as timothy, orchard grass, alfalfa, and more, and should make up the majority of a rabbit's diet.

Rabbit Pellets:

  • Rabbit pellets are formulated to provide balanced nutrition to domestic rabbits and are typically made up of compressed grasses, grains, and other ingredients.
  • Pellets are high in protein, which is important for rabbits during growth, reproduction, and recovery from illness or injury.
  • However, overfeeding pellets can lead to obesity and other health problems, so they should be given in moderation.
  • It's important to choose high-quality pellets that are specifically formulated for rabbits, as generic small animal feed can lack necessary nutrients.

Overall, providing a balanced diet of hay, pellets, and fresh vegetables is key to keeping a domestic rabbit healthy and happy.
