Our specialization is your advantage when it comes to rodents and rabbits, but in particular when it comes to rabbit food. Not all brands get a place in our deletions and that has a reason. Because rabbit food is so important for rabbits, we only offer the best food. In addition, we have high requirements when it comes to food and it must be fresh, have a long shelf life and meet the nutritional needs of the rabbit.

Rabbits are small, folivorous / herbivorous (herbivorous) mammals and belong to the order of the hare species. They are mostly active at dusk and at night, very pleasant and live in nature in social groups. Even if they are kept as pets, they should certainly not be left alone. They feel best as a couple (a castrated male and a female) or in larger groups. Dwarf rabbits have a life expectancy of around 8 to 12 years. Dwarf rabbits reach a size of approximately 50 cm and a weight of approximately 2 kg.

Like all other small mammals, rabbits also have special nutritional needs. The digestive system is especially important for a healthy and vital life.

Rabbit Teeth

There are two incisors in the upper and lower jaws. The two additional pin teeth behind the upper incisors have no function whatsoever. The incisors and molars of the rabbit have one thing in common: they continue to grow for life and for about 8 mm per month.

That means:

a) The position of the teeth must be correct so that tooth wear is possible and the teeth do not grow uncontrolled.

b) the choice of feed is a very important factor for the optimum wear of the incisors and the molars. A rough fiber structure is necessary

The stomach of rabbits

Rabbits have a so-called 'full gag stomach'. Their stomach is not very muscular and can therefore not independently transport the food to the next part of the intestine.

This is supposedly taken over by the following food portions.

That also explains why rabbits take on average 80-120 small portions per day.

These portions must be tailored to the maintenance needs of adult animals or to the growth of young rabbits. This way you can avoid digestive problems and obesity.

Rabbits Blind Bowel

The large appendix is the so-called fermentation chamber. The fine dietary fibers, which are converted into proteins, vitamin B complex and vitamin K, go there.

From the appendix, the appendix (grape-shaped and surrounded by a mucus layer) comes out and is taken back by rabbits. This is a natural process that is very important for health

Calcium phosphorus

Rabbits have a special calcium metabolism. In the body, calcium is primarily found in the bones and teeth. Calcium supply through food is therefore particularly important to keep the animal healthy.

However, an increased calcium level in adult rabbits can lead to bladder grit or even to bladder stones, as this is excreted in the urine. That is why the choice of the right food components is important.

Optimal calcium content in the basic feed

  • Young animals: 0.9% *
  • Adult animals: 0.6%

* Young animals require higher calcium levels due to their still incomplete growth compared to adult rabbits.

Importance of the crude fiber-starch ratio

Raw fiber : Raw fiber is very important for the health of rabbits: for digestion, for the appendix and with their raw fiber structure for tooth wear. Good food should consist of roughly 20% raw fiber.

Starch : Starch is primarily an energy supplier and must be present in the feed to a limited extent. With good feed, the guide value is below 7% starch. Moreover, the energy supply can be labeled as sub-optimal.

A shift in the crude fiber-starch ratio can lead to health damage in the long term:

  • Too little crude fiber leads to intestinal inertia, changes in the intestinal flora and impaired functioning of the appendix.
  • Too much starch leads to eating breaks, changes in the intestinal flora, swellings, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity. If you take these arguments into account, then it becomes clear why vets recommend at least a crude fiber-starch ratio of 3: 1.

How do I know how much starch my feed contains?

In addition, the composition is very useful: whole grains (with starch-containing flour body), field beans, potatoes or peas are an indication that a higher starch content must be taken into account.
