The manufacturer recommends that 75% of a rabbits diet be grass hay, 20% be a fortified food (such as this) and 5% be treats and greens.

Does it expire

This food will have an expiration date. Every expiration date will be different for each bag, as different batches are constantly being produced. The expiration date will be stamped on the bag to reference.

Gone down hill

They were bought out this year. Their original formula contained ZERO soy! For the last, probably 5-8yrs, now, soy has been listed as an ingredient, but rather low on the list. I am appalled to read today's Ingredient list!!! SOY, SOY, SOY, SOY! Never feed soy ANYTHING to male rabbits! For one thing, they lose the ruff under their neck. I have noticed this happen to my male bunny ever since they began adding soy. Soy is a phyto-ESTROGEN! Acts the same way in humans! I have fed Oxbow for nearly 30yrs to my buns. I'm heart broken that they were bought out, & are systematically being destroyed. :"(

Quality pelleted feed for bunnies

Our therapy bunnies have a diet primarily made up of quality timothy hay but they enjoy a small amount of pellets each day too. Oxbow does a great job of high quality ingredients without unnecessary filler.

Best rabbit pellets!

I highly recommend oxbows rabbit pellets they have all the nutrients your rabbit needs and they are timothy based like they should be also the cheapest option for timothy pellets and my bunnies love them!

Amazing food

My 3 rabbits love oxbows food! I'm allergic to Timothy hay and I can only feed them orchard hay, so this Timothy hay first ingredient is wonderful. Over the years I've switched different brands and I'm most satisfied with this one. I would definitely recommend it for all adult rabbits!

Excellent quality

This is a great feed. My rabbit loves it and eats it really soon after l put it in her cage. Unlike other feed that I have fed. Unfortunately the price increased and that is why I am unable to give full rating.

Great shipping & quality

He hasn’t tried this yet, but I was so impressed with the fast shipping! I’m switching from garden select to the essentials and also young to adult food. I needed this asap, so I would still have enough old food to transition and it got here just in time! Now I will be able to fully transition him to this new food. Also, the quality was very nice- no dust or anything
