About This Item

  • Bunny Basics - Young Rabbit Food is an alfalfa-based pellet created especially for the specific dietary needs of the young or active rabbit. Designed to meeting nutritional needs of rabbits under 1 year.
  • Rabbits are strict herbivores and a diet high in fiber is essential for maintaining good health. Alfalfa hay is used to provide an optimized balanced protein source, containing the amino acids required for the growth and health of your rabbit.
  • Can be fed to older rabbits having problems maintaining weight due to age or illness. When supplemented with free-choice grass hay
  • Bunny Basics Young Rabbit may also be fed to pregnant or nursing rabbits.
  • Always change your rabbit's food gradually to allow the digestive system time to adapt. Some rabbits are resistant to change, so time and patience are needed when switching feeds.

my rabbit Binx ABSOLUTELY LOVES it.

My 5 month old Binx absolutely loves this food, he would much rather eat his pellets than hay (which he does) I usually use his pellets as a treat as well. I 100% recommend this brand over any other.

Package ipen3d

We recently purchased a bag of this food and when it arrived the bag had a large cut in it, spilling the contents throughout the box. The food seems to be OK but now I'm worried about it losing its freshness quicker.

so convenient when your item is hard to find.

Most pet stores in my area have a "token" rabbit section. Grateful to Chewy for having harder to find goodies and shipping quickly even during challenging times.
