    Yep I've emailed them & will let you guys know what their response is.

    Gotta say without these Mousey got in a right state - couldn't reach her cecos & was smushing them in to her foot. Needed daily bum baths & everything. Its rare I have to clean her up these days. I'll definitely be too scared to stop using them again

    Just found their reply in my spam

    Hello Louise,

    Thank you for contacting Oxbow Animal Health with your question. We are so glad that Oxbow's joint support supplement has benefited your bun! To answer your question, 2 tablets per day is the maximum recommended dose for this supplement for rabbits 4 lbs and greater due to the active ingredients in the product. However, we always recommend that you work with a trusted veterinarian to determine the most appropriate dosage for your individual animal.

    I hope this information helps - if you have further questions please let us know as we would be happy to assist!

    For me the confusing thing is that under 4lb there is a range, but not over. I wonder which active ingredients.

    What an unhelpful answer from Oxbow.

    I'd never thought about using the Oxbow ones as a preventitive. I wonder if that could be useful for Sophie and Casper, since they are getting a little older...

    I think J&B are similar ish in age to S&C. I started them 2 months ago. Had to give it a lot of thought as I don't think I could stop when started, just in case they actually do work So I'm committed. They just have 1 tab each a day, Mouse has 2. How much do your bunnies weigh?

    I was thinking of starting these for Clementine, I think she'll need Metacam daily soon tbh, the knee ops did leave her with arthritis but she'd been okay.. Also was thinking about Penelope having also now had a knee op.. But yea they're both obviously very big buns, Clementine is around 4.5kg and Penelope is 5kg..so the dosage is weird..

    everybuns gonna think I've got shares in Oxbow You could ask your specialist their view of them. I think Phillps mum was going to ask Uncle Johns opinion. Ruth said she'd heard good reports about the dog equivalent, had owners dog have relapse but recovered after restarting them but not heard much in the context of rabbits. The reviews always seem very positive - for those bunnies that will eat them

    William was never sure they did much a few years back when I asked, but said can't hurt.

    Ivone said she wasn't sure either, and mainly they had trouble getting buns to eat them (not an issue I've had ) but said was happy for me to give them if they'd eat them. (this was for the whole range, I've used the urinary support ones before and both the gut ones)

    So yeaa Idk really!

    Both my bunnies take them. Tethra because he has Arthritis, is already on Metacam and has quite poor mobility now. Tui has them as well, but for her it's more as a preventative as she's a giant rabbit.

    I can't say for sure whether they have improved Tethra, but I'm willing to continue as of course he could be worse without them. The tablets contain Glucosamine, which, as far as I know, is long term in its effect on the joints. I don't think it will reverse the condition, but could prevent it becoming worse. I think the pain-relieving/anti-inflammatory element in the tablets is the Turmeric.
