The PDSA Animal Wellbeing 2016 report highlighted that only 30% of owners provide their rabbits with constant access to hay for eating. We want to ensure that alongside their bedding hay, which should be used for sleeping and comfort only, rabbits should be provided with good quality feeding hay which is more tasty and will help to support their digestive and dental health. 85-90% of their diet should be hay and grass: that’s equal to their body size in feeding hay! Hay is a great source of fibre, it helps to support their digestive and dental health, wearing down growing teeth and it helps prevent boredom. Do you know the difference between bedding hay and feeding hay? Bedding hay can be low in quality and is only suitable for rabbits to sleep on. Rabbits also need feeding hay, which is much more tasty and grown for eating. Speak to us for more advice
