WHAT GOES INTO OUR PRODUCTS?
85% of a rabbit’s diet should be made up of long stranded fibrous hay to help keep their digestive tract and teeth in tip top condition. Here at the Binky Shop, we use a mixture of up to 6 different types of top quality branded hay which is dust extracted for those buns who suffer with respiratory problems. The hay we use offers foraging opportunities to combat boredom and encourage our fussy hay eaters. The hay also helps to promote dental health by promoting chewing on the fibrous forage inside.
Burgess Excel Fresh Forage – This hay consists of additive free, natural dried grass to encourage natural foraging behaviours. The hay is full flavoured to encourage fussy hay eaters.
