Comparison of Rabbit Dry Foods

In the diet section:

At first glance, choosing a brand of pellets can be a little overwhelming. Pet shops stock their shelves with foods that promise to be “gourmet”, “premium”, “fortified with vitamins”, or contain “all natural ingredients”. Don’t be tempted by this advertising; to get an accurate idea of how good a food is look at the nutritional analysis and ingredients list on the back of the packets instead.

  • Fibre: The higher the fibre content (look for a minimum of 18%) generally the better the food will be for your rabbit’s digestion.
  • Protein: A healthy adult rabbit needs a protein level of 12-14%. Young rabbits (under five months) need a higher protein level of around 16% to support their rap >Food not listed? Click here to check it manually

I’m Tamsin, and I like rabbits, such as Scamp at the top there. He’s a wild rabbit I hand reared. As well as writing a blog and book about rabbits, I run a site that promotes UK rabbit rescues (which incidentally is how I ended up with Scamp).
