    Default Fibafirst - how many sticks?

    Trying to get one of my buns just eating this, the box says 75g a day.. But that would be soooooooo many sticks... How many sticks a day do you feed? x

    Is this for Fleur? Are you using them to replace pellets or as a top-up? I used to use the sticks as a treat for a rabbit, who needed to maintain weight. This was in addition to pellets. So when I saw her by herself I would offer her a stick at various times during the day.

    I use them for a rabbit who has to maintain weight but that can't eat hay - in addition to pellets I give 6 sticks a day. It may seem a lot, but he isn't putting on weight with that and just maintaining.

    It's certainly good for fibre if they will eat them!

    Omi uses a different brand, so if these don't go down well:

    You could perhaps try these?

    No this is for Atticus - he seems to have a delicate stomach, and I was wondering if it's the excel pellets, he really likes the Fibafirst so thought maybe I'd just give him them and see if his stomach improved. The vets have a sample from him sometimes they're like cow pats? Haha sometimes just large not round poops that look really wet.. And sometimes there's been small puddles of liquid poo on the floor - his bum is never really clean - although I took him to the vets and vet said his bum was fine (it's not that he gets poo stuck to his I know this can happen with rabbits-it's more like where the poo comes out there's poo liquid there... Delightful I know sorry haha.

    Clementine who eats her pellets so fast seems to have an iron stomach but also likes Fibafirst just been giving her two sticks a day as well as her egg cup of pellets.

    Fleur, considering vet said try give her more fibre, I left some for her to eat them as well as pellets but she's never really been interested in them.

    Atticus is really who I'd like to get just eating them to see if it helped his stomach but the amount of sticks to make 75g is soo many haha which is fine I just didn't want to be overfeeding
