Description

Feed your adult rabbit a diet that combines essential fiber and stabilized nutrients with Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics/T Adult Rabbit Food. Adult rabbits have different nutritional needs than juveniles. They still need a lot of fiber to keep their digestive systems working properly and basic vitamins and minerals, but not as much as growing rabbits. Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics/T Adult Rabbit Food is specifically designed to meet the particular nutritional needs of adult rabbits. It is made from timothy grass hay to aid in digestion and contains optimum protein and calcium-to-phosphorous levels. To transition your rabbit to his new food, gradually replace his current food with the new food over a four-week time period to prevent digestive issues and finicky eating patterns.

Key Benefits

  • Made from timothy grass meal, Essentials - Adult Rabbit is specifically designed to meet the particular nutritional needs of adult rabbits. Adult nutritional needs are lower than those of animals in the growth stage of life
  • Rabbits are designed to eat and digest fiber found in plant material. Timothy grass hay provides the fiber necessary to maintain intestinal health, and makes Essentials - Adult Rabbit the veterinarian's number one choice for your adult rabbit.
  • Specifically designed to meet nutritional needs of adults rabbits with its timothy-hay based formula and optimum protein levels.
  • Made with natural ingredients, this product is fresh and straight from the farm!
  • This product is not intended for growing, active, pregnant or nursing rabbits. Seventy-five percent of your rabbit's diet should be grass hay.

Special Note

Oxbow recently went through a packaging change. Customers may receive old packaging during this transition, but it's still the same great formula!

  • Oxbow Essentisl Bunny Basics Adult Rabbit Food

    By on

    My 21 pound Giant Flemish Rabbit Loves his Oxbow Rabbit food. He lets me know when it's time to eat, sometimes he literally goes crazy when I pour his pellets into his bowl, trying to knock my hands outta his way so he can chow down. Bud Bunny gives his seal of approval <3

  • Best price around

    By on

    I work in a corporate pet store, and even with my discount I still can't buy a 25lb bag of Oxbow Rabbit food for this cheap. Finding a bag of food this big is hard to come by already, the price in a bonus. Plus chewy.com has amazing customer service!!!

    I order the 25lbs bag of kibble and it arrived on time with no complications! There was nothing wrong with the product and tracking was VERY easy. I am very satisfied with my purchase and I would definitely recommend buying from chewy.com!

  • Buns LOVES her pellets

    By on

    Buns will dash and binky around her pen in the morning when she sees me coming with her pellets. I can barely set the bowl down before her face is in it. Good thing I'm not a sucker bc I get the cute begging for more treatment after she's devoured them. Has all the right ingredients to keep her healthy.

  • Bunny can't get enough!

    By on

    The way my bunny goes crazy over the pellets, you would think I was starving her lol (don't worry she gets unlimited hay and a cup of veggies every day). They are great as treats when teaching tricks.

    By on

    This is the food that is recommended by a Rabbit Rescue group I support. The adult rabbits eat mainly oat hay and a couple of Romain lettuce leafs each day, with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of these pellets a day to support their needed vitamins, minerals, etc. Babies to 4 months get all the oat hay and pellets they want but no veggies. For babies recommend the Oxbow Bunny Basics for Young Rabbits.
