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.

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

  • Oxbow is the way to go!

    By on

    I was a little worried that Smash would have a hard time transitioning to adult food from the Young Rabbit, but he did great! He's never has anything but Oxbow & he loves it! He gets so excited when he sees his daily food coming. Sometimes he would rather eat his food than his treats if that tells you anything! I don't know what the food tastes like lol but it must be pretty darn good!!!

  • Huge Improvement in Rabbits

    By on

    Once I switched my rabbits to oxbow pellets, I saw a huge improvement in their health. Their coats are shinier and softer, and they seem to just be happier and healthier overall. They go just as crazy for these pellets as they did for the ones filled with junk too. Highly recommend.

  • My bunny loved it!

    By on

    I was worried purchasing this item because my rabbit had been eating the Young Rabbit food and I though it would be hard getting her used to the Adult Rabbit food. But it was not! She took to it right away

  • Bun and furmom approved!

    By on

    My bun loves this food and I do as well!! Wonderful ingredients and a trusted brand! Definitely recommend going off the suggested serving sizes though to prevent any extra weight gain-my bun always cleans her bowl in one sitting!

  • Peter adores these pellets!

    By on

    My bunny Peter always runs around in circles in his cage when he hears me shake his pellets in his bowl. He loves these pellets and they are a good price for the quality, especially on chewy.

  • It's good.

    By on

    I bought this because I wanted to switch my rabbits to a better quality food. Upon reading the ingredients, there still isn't much different between what I gave them before and what this is. I've heard of a different brand called Sherwood that I will try instead. Wish I knew about them before buying this. This food is better than a lot of the junk they sell for rabbits though.

  • 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!!!

  • 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.
