    Default Food For Sensitive Bunny - recommendations - urgent!

    Hi


    My rabbit Poppy is just over 8 and a half. She's a lionhead house rabbit. She had issues for years with stasis and we (me and my vet) decided that there was something about soya ingredients that set her off. She has *touch wood* been on Oxbow Organic Pellets for the last year and has only had a very minor episode (after we lost my other bun, who'd she'd been with since she was a baby). However, I cannot get hold of any Oxbow Organic anywhere and now need to find some food urgently, before I run out completely (therefore not giving me a chance to mix foods for a changover. I am in a right panic! Thank you.

    I don't know what to suggest other than ringing Oxbow and see if they can send you any or even a sample pack to tide you over.

    My little one has digestion problems, acid reflux and also slow gut mobility. The specialist put her on muesli, said to just keep it simple. She has lots of hay and only 20g of muesli a day and that's it. No veg or herbs although I think I maybe could add in herbs and see how she goes but some hays even set her off.

    Can you keep your little one on just hay until you get some more, it won't harm her.

    Hi - yes Poppy is the same - she can't have any herbs/vet. I think I could. I will ask Owbow though - it's worth a try!

    Maybe google oxbow organic and ethical pets and it should come up.

    Hi - thanks ever so much, but I've tried to add product and keep getting an error message (on both IE and Firefox), so I've emailed them directly to see if they can help

    Brilliant. I would still call Oxbow as they may be able to help on where you can get it locally. Good luck

    If you can't get any. I give my buns beaphar rabbit nature. It's hasnt got any soya in. It's mostly just hay! I have a sensitive bun, we found excel gave her bad gas and a gurgly tummy. So looked for alternatives.
