The Excel Feeding Plan
Step 1 – Excel Herbage and Forage
Burgess Excel premium quality hay and grass foods are high in fi bre and should form most of a rabbit’s diet. These foods are especially good for dental health as the chewing action required to eat them helps rabbits to wear down their teeth. Rabbits’ teeth are constantly growing and overgrown teeth are painful and can be the cause of potentially fatal problems.
Step 2 – Excel Tasty Nuggets
These contain 100% natural, wholesome ingredients, are naturally high in ‘Benefi cial Fibre’ for digestive health and have added vitamins, minerals and prebiotics. As they’re not a muesli-style mix, they prevent selective feeding.
Step 3 – Excel Nature Snacks
These healthy, high-fi bre snacks are ideal for rabbits as they promote emotional health by preventing boredom and encourage bonding and interaction between you and your pets. They can be given daily because they’re packed with goodness and are made using only natural ingredients. Some are specially designed to be fed by hand which helps rabbits to get comfortable with human attention.
Step 4 - Fresh Greens
Rabbits should be fed fresh greens to give additional fresh nutrients and to provide some variety, but you need to be careful about what you feed them, and how much. Keep quantities small – about a teacup a day of fresh greens is enough for an adult Netherland Dwarf rabbit – substantially more is needed for large/giant breeds. Some of these foods can be too ‘rich’ for rabbits if fed in large volumes, the result being diarrhoea. So small amounts and a mix of different varieties is best. Be aware that not all fruit, vegetables and greenery are good for rabbits – kale, spinach and savoy cabbage are examples of good greens to feed. Root vegetables like carrots or fruit are very high in sugar and starch, so should only be given in very small amounts as an occasional treat.
Step 5 - Fresh Water
A plentiful supply of fresh, clean water must always be available.
