Best food for 10 year old rabbit?
« on: December 30, 2007, 10:31:14 PM »
I have had a Dutch female rabbit for about 9 or 10 years. What kind of rat pellet would you use? I have her on Timothy Complete but i was thinking about going to Mazuri because i think i could trust that company more than the others on the market. What do you think? who ever has rabbits : what do you feed your rabbit? I of course also always have hay in her cage and fresh foods ever other day.

I hear that Rainbow Exact is good also but again i don't trust Kaytee.

THanks

Whatever you are doing must be right since your old girl made it to 10!

I use Oxbow timothy hay based pellets, but my boys are younger.   

I know that calcium and Vitamin D in currently available pellets can be excessive for older buns.  See
