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!

    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.

    My rabbit just started out on this food and he loves it!! He had Bladder sludge and has recently recovered from it. This is great food to keep the calcium not to high. I recommend it for any rabbit owner (also other small pet owners.)

  • Nutritionally Ideal

    I have had my rabbit on Oxbow since she was 6 weeks old on the recommendation of my vet. She is now 4 and is happy, healthy, a great weight and feels great on this food! I love how there is no junk like fruits or grains in it. The big bag lasts me several months with one rabbit and does not go stale or rancid in any way, though I do keep it in a sealed container. If you have one rabbit the small one is fine, but any more than more rabbit commit to the big bag.

    My bun was on the mixed/gourmet pellets from the previous owner, which isn't good for him. People have overwhelmingly recommended Oxbow's adult formula so that's what I got. I was worried that he'd have a hard time switching, but nope, all is well. Smells fine, looks fine. Pellets are skinnier than the other pellets though, but that's not really an issue. The price was significantly cheaper on chewy than anywhere else! Bun also enjoys the huge box everything came in. Will be ordering here from now on :)

  • Never buying anywhere else again!

    By on

    I ordered this because it's the only food my rabbit can eat and I was expecting a bag about half the size of the one I received since that is what I usually paid for it and when it arrived I was so happy! I basically bought double the food I normally get for the same price! I will never buy it anywhere else! Highly recommend for your fur babies.

  • Best bunny food i know of, and it's from a good company as well.

    By on

    When i first gave this food to my rescue bunny, after running down the supply of cheap food her previous caretaker had purchased, she got a shiny coat and became way more active and expressionate. My bunnies like the 25lb bag as much as the 10lb bag. All sizes that i have purchased of this brand have always had a high quality zipper seal (to keep your furry Angel's food nice and fresh.) ...and can be reused for other things many, many, times as well. Bunnies deserve nothing but the best, and that's a fact; i very, very, strongly recomend this brand over the cheaper brands (even if your bun likes the cheap stuff now.)
