The adult rabbit formula has a better than average fibre content which, given bunnies are herbivores/fibrevores, the more fibre the better.
Oxbow is one of the best brands of pellets for small animals or pocket pets. A good quality pellet has important vitamins & minerals that the bunny misses by being a house bunny or caged bunny. Don't buy any pellets that are lower than 20% fibre, they are just no good at all for your bunny unless you want it to gain weight, but there are better ways of increasing weight in an underweight bun than by feeding them junk food. Your bunny-savvy vet will help here.
We add a small margin to the cost price as want people to buy quality food for their bunnies as cost-effectively as possible while still making a few dollars for the refuge.
Pellets ARE NOT the main source of nutrition for bunnies. Bunnies should be eating a diet of mainly good-quality hay, such as oaten hay or timothy hay. A pellet-only diet will mean a fat, sick bunny.
Pellets, fruit & carrot slices etc are treats, to be used sparingly and as a tool to check that your bunny is well. As bunnies are prey animals, they try very hard to hide that they are sick, so we need a few tricks up our sleeves. This is where pellets & treats come in handy to help YOU notice when your bunny isn't well. A treat at breakfast time and at dinner time means that treats are approx.12 hours apart. So if your bunny gobbled their morning treat but ignores their dinner time treat, it could mean your bunny is unwell, so a trip to the vet should be in order.
