Those of you who are experiencing a rapid and healthy growth of your young pet rabbits ought to be commended. As they morph into adulthood, it can be regarded as something of a natural miracle that, so far, your young rabbits have remained healthy. You are being commended because you have done everything, so far, that is expected of you to keep your pet rabbits healthy and ensure that their overall welfare or wellness even, is in check.
Your specialist veterinarian has also given a stamp of approval. So, congratulations to all of you. Perhaps your vet has already done this, but if not, let us reward you with oxbow adult rabbit food. Observing how quickly your young ones have grown, your vet may have remarked that, boy oh boy, are you going to need it. You know this much already. Your rabbits’ dietary requirements will certainly be changing as they make their first forays into adulthood.
You may know this much about daily dietary requirements for adult rabbits, but just in case, we thought we would provide you with a brief but extensive reminder of what needs to be factored in. The oxbow range, in any case, has already done this. For now, let us look at mixed food and pellets. Let us get the pellets out of the way before talking about the joys of variety. Just remember that the recommended pellets are being packaged from dry grass in uniform sized chunks.
This ensures that grown up rabbits are not able to discard essential ingredients during their instinctive foraging. When shopping for pellet food, be as discerning as possible. Always read product labels and make sure that the pellets do indeed contain all the essential dietary ingredients. These will invariably include all essential minerals, vitamins and protein sources. But why are we telling you all this. You already know this much.
Now, let us move on to the pleasurable subject of mixed food for adult rabbits. Variety is the spice of life, even for plucky rabbits. Recommended sources provide a blend of both dried and processed ingredients, over and above natural food sources which are always highly recommended, provided that you are knowledgeably able to manage your rabbits’ daily diet. We mentioned this earlier. Stress has been placed on preventing adult rabbits from being selective in their eating habits.
Close monitoring of this is crucial given the restrictions to do with roaming space. If you are caring for just one grown bunny then, of course, you are better able to manage your pet’s eating habits. You are more than likely, and rather unfortunately, required to keep the adult rabbit in a cage, given your own space restrictions and the unfortunate quandary to do with regulations of keeping such pets in condensed urban and suburban environments.
We hope this outline has been sufficiently motivating for you at this time. So sad to see that they have all grown up. But even so, they are still quite cute, aren’t they.
