Dwarf rabbit food in the online Maxi Zoo shop
High-quality dwarf rabbit food for happy animals
Dwarf rabbits are very sociable animals which feel at home only when in a group. They share their enclosures, toys and, of course, food with their fellow residents. This makes these cute little animals relatively easy to care for. Nevertheless, you should consider a few points as their owner. We will show you which foods are suitable as dwarf rabbit food.
This is why hay is the optimal dwarf rabbit food
As with many other small animals, hay is also clearly used as a basic foodstuff for dwarf rabbits. The benefits are obvious: hay is full of fibre and so it reliably stimulates your pets’ digestion. And that’s not all: hay also promotes your rabbit’s tooth abrasion – an essential process for small animals, as their teeth regrow continuously. Hay also supplies valuable vitamins and minerals.
It is important that your dwarf rabbits always have access to fresh, high-quality hay. For this, a hay rack is recommended. This can be easily attached to the bars of the cage. Change the hay in it daily, as its quality can decrease after a short time. Apart from hay, rabbits also like to eat fresh or dried meadow herbs, grass, dandelions and clover leaves.
Buy dwarf rabbit food: you have a wide selection at Maxi Zoo
Would you like to buy dwarf rabbit food online? At Maxi Zoo, you get fresh hay of the highest quality – and in different varieties. Find out whether your dwarf rabbits prefer the hay of flowers, herbs or mountain meadows. In combination with dried herbs and flowers, your rabbits will be supplied with a variety of important nutrients. Various snacks made from dried vegetables or fibre-rich dry food mixes in the form of pellets are an important addition to hay. The latter is also available without cereals, which means that they do not provide an excessive amount of energy. This in turn prevents your rabbits from becoming overweight. In addition, the mixtures are generally also fine without added sugar. You can also find different types of dry food in Maxi Zoo’s online shop.
Vegetables and fruit are also available as dwarf rabbit food
A good third of the food which you give your dwarf rabbit should consist of fresh vegetables and fruit. When you do this, you should give your rabbit significantly more vegetables than fruit. Vegetable varieties such as fennel, spinach, celery, carrots, parsnips and broccoli are particularly welcome. But fresh lettuce leaves and herbs such as parsley are also very popular with small lop-eared rabbits. Fruit should be fed in moderate quantities due to their relatively high sugar content. Otherwise, digestive problems may result. But you shouldn’t just pay attention to portion size: small animals don’t tolerate all varieties of fruit. Apples, pears, stone fruit without pips and berries are safe. Freshness also plays an important role: wilted and rotten scraps of fruit and vegetables are not suitable as dwarf rabbit food. The same applies to sprayed fruit and vegetables.
