Forage Blends for Rabbits - More Than Just a Tasty Treat

· Promote natural foraging behaviours and prevent boredom. Rabbits instinctively forage and graze for many hours per day. Forage blends satisfy this need for mental stimulation.

· Add a diversity of flavours, textures, and nutrition. Rabbits benefit from eating a wide variety of plants. Forage blends provide novel tastes and nutrition.

· Support digestive health. The fibre, vitamins, and phytonutrients in forage plants aid digestion. Rotating different forage keeps the gut microbiome diverse.

· Provide enrichment. Foraging is an important natural behaviour for rabbits. Scattering forage in the enclosure gives rabbits an activity to engage in.

· Safe treats. Unlike sugary commercial treats, forage plants are low-calorie, all-natural, and safe for regular feeding.
