Provide your young rabbit with the nutrients he need to grow healthy and strong with Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics Young Rabbit Food. Young rabbits' nutritional needs are different than those of adults. They need a lot of fiber as well as a good balance of protein and amino acids for proper growth. Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics Young Rabbit Food is made specifically to meet the unique, daily dietary requirements of rabbits under a year old. It is made with energy-dense alfalfa hay, an optimized, balanced protein source containing those essential amino acids. It is also ideal for rabbits with problems maintaining weight due to age or illness. For rabbits under one year, feed unlimited pellets daily along with unlimited grass hay. If you're transitioning your rabbit's diet, mix three parts current food with one part new food for the first week. Then continue to increase the new food ratio gradually for four weeks until transition is complete.
