Vets are seeing a growing number of overweight rabbits, usually as a result of poor diet and lack of exercise. Those extra pounds put a strain on a pet’s good health and can lead to fatal illnesses. Excel Light Nuggets is a complementary calorie-controlled food that will help reduce and control a rabbit’s weight at the correct level.
Remember that good quality hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your rabbits’ diet and should be available at all times. Rabbits should also be fed a small amount of leafy greens each day. Please talk to your vet for further information.
If you are currently feeding a muesli style food to your rabbits you should gradually transfer them onto a hay and nugget based feeding plan over a period of between 14 and 28 days, by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of nuggets until they have completely replaced the mix.
Always ensure you are monitoring your rabbits’ weight to ensure a healthy weight. Please see the body condition scoring charthere.
Always ensure fresh clean water is available for your rabbits.
