Rabbit Awareness Week: Focus on Food

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Rabbit Awareness Week logoIt’s Rabbit Awareness Week!  People in the UK can find free rabbit vet clinics in their area to get their rabbits a full health check.

This week also coincides with a new study about rabbit food conducted at Edinburgh University. Researchers have confirmed that muesli-style rabbit food cause major dental and digestive health issues in rabbits. The study provides a compelling argument that pet stores should stop carrying muesli-style products.  According to Professor Anna Meredith, who conducted the study, “Vets have suspected for a number of years that feeding muesli-style foods could lead to health issues in rabbits, and now we have the proof.”

What should you feed your rabbit? The main staple in a rabbit’s diet is hay.  Learn more about a  proper pet rabbit diet in our article, What to Feed Your House Rabbit. You can get more tips on providing a happy and healthy home for your bunny in our Rabbit Care, Bunny Behavior, Rabbit Health, and New to Rabbits sections.
