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!
