    One other downside is the tabs are apparently too hard for some bunnies (I read so many reviews)
    Yes, that's much closer than you usually get! All they knew about Casper's age when I adopted him was that he was around 3 or 4 years old, so for my convenience I decided he was 3.5 years old when I adopted him in April 2015, so he'll be about 9.5 this April. I don't know what happened with Sophie's mum and siblings, no. I'd like to know, but the only thing I know is that Sophie's mum had already found a new home when I adopted Sophie. Several of her siblings were still at the rescue then, and the rescue closed shortly after that and at that point all the bunnies had been adopted, so I assume they all found a good home.

    Are they about as hard as the fenugreek crunchies? I thought those were pretty hard, but Sophie ate them just fine.

    Hi Mikki,

    Thank You for your email & thank you for the reply to my query. It went in to my spam folder so I was slow to pick it up. To be honest I still don't understand why the joint support tablets dosing table is weight dependant but only up to 4 pounds. If you could shed further light on this that would be very much appreciated. Does it relate to any specific ingredient?

    I did ask my trusted & very savvy rabbit vet her view on these. Whereas she was happy for me to administer them & was open to the potential of them helping I don't think she could advocate their use or even recommend dosing without having lots of scientific data to back it up. I've shared my anecodotal experience with her that I think they help

    Best wishes
    That's a good email. Hopefully they'll have a more useful answer this time.

    aww that nice to think her whole family went to nice forever homes - I hope so. We don't do fenugrek crunchies here (well I do a homemade version) but the JS tabs are hard, I struggle to break them. Mouse often needs hers softening (brief soak in water) but J&B manage fine

    I like this reply better

    Thanks for following up! The main active ingredient in our Joint support tablets is glucosamine, which can cause gastrointestinal upset and other concerns when fed in too high of quantities (see below visual for summarization of the active ingredients in the product). Therefore, our general feeding recommendations cannot exponentially increase with weight in our small herbivore species. However, as I mentioned in my initial email, your trusted vet is the best one to make specific recommendations for your little one based on her intimate knowledge of her specific needs and conditions as our guidelines are just that – guidelines. As with any supplement, these products are not meant to “cure” or “treat” illnesses and conditions, but are rather intended to support or aid in management of certain conditions. If your veterinarian would like to learn more about our supplements, please have her contact us directly and we would be happy to put her in contact with our veterinary team to learn more.

    Hmm, I think Sophie and Casper would be okay with something hard, if I decide to get them the joint stuff...

    Also, that email you got back this time seems more helpful, though it's still a bit vague. I hope you can find the table you downloaded. Is it not in your Downloads folder? Maybe download it again and see if it says where it's saving it to? Or use the search function on your device to look for it?
