Science Selective Rabbit Mature 4 years+
Specially formulated for rabbits aged 4 years+
Selective 4+ is recommended by vets and provides a tasty balanced diet formulated to meet the special needs of mature rabbits.
This nutritionally complete food has high levels of fibre (22%), to aid gut motility and is also low in sugar and protein to help prevent obesity in less active, older rabbits.
It includes timothy hay and thyme to help stimulate the appetite, helping to avoid age-related reluctance to feed. Other antioxidant ingredients such as bilberry, ginkgo, and green tea provide complete nutritional support for the older rabbit.
But it is what we don’t put in to Selective that is important too…
Have you checked the label on your rabbits’ food lately? Take a look, because many rabbit foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a rabbit’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too.
Feeding Selective for the first time?
If you are feeding Selective to your rabbits for the first time, make sure you change from one food to another, gradually over 10-14 days. At first, you should mix a small amount of Selective with your rabbits’ current food, slowly decreasing the old diet, whilst gradually increasing the quantity of Selective. A sudden change in diet can cause digestive upsets – even when you are changing to a better quality diet – so take care!
If your rabbits are used to a sugary diet, you may find it takes them a while to change, but persevere as it will help to benefit your rabbits’ health in the long term.
And don’t forget fresh hay and water! Your rabbits should have an unlimited supply of both at all times.
