High Fiber Pellets
Bunny Chow is a lucerne based pellet, specially formulated for the pet rabbit. These pellets are high in fibre (21%), low in protein (15%) and low in calcium and fat. High fibre pellets are essential for your rabbit. This blend of nutrients encourages a healthy digestive system and helps maintain a healthy gut flora.
Why feed your rabbit Bunny Chow Pellets?
Rabbits have very sensitive digestive systems and need a high fibre diet to keep the intetinal tract functioning properly. A lack of fibre will cause diarrhoea and prevents ingested hair passing through. This can be life threatening if left untreated, resulting in Gastrointestinal Stasis, a condition where the movement of the digestive system shuts down.
A diet too high in calcium can cause bladder stones and bladder sludge. This is usually noticeable in the urine, which resembles a thick white paste. Bunny Chow Rabbit Pellets have a lower level of calcium to prevent urinary problems, yet there is sufficient calcium to maintain healthy bones and teeth.
The lower level of protein allows your rabbit to grow at a normal rate and prevents obesity.
