The Only Food For Rabbits

I have been told by numerous specialized vets as well as shelters that this is the food they recommend for rabbits. This has been the only food I have fed my rabbits, who are both happy and healthy for 2+ years on this diet! I like that they have the recommended serving sizes on the back of the package as well. All bunny owners - use this food!!

my bunnies go-to dinner!

My rabbit simply adores these pellets! The other vegetable flavored pellets she wouldn’t touch at all for some reason but these classic rabbit pellets are her absolute favorite. Every time we order them for her she’s always so excited and every night when we Give her them she’s always gobbles them up immediately! Definitely a number one choice for us!

Not pellets just dust

Terrible. Half way through its just dust. Not much for him to eat and he's left being hungry.
