Beaphar Care+ Rabbit Senior Food 1.5kg.
Beaphar CARE+ Senior Rabbit is a complete feed suitable for older rabbits, over the age of 6 years. A lower protein content and no added sugars help to prevent obesity in less active rabbits.
Rabbits need a high fibre diet to stay healthy. A complete food should always be fed to make sure that your rabbit is getting all the nutrients that it needs, and this should be supplemented by a regular supply of fresh hay and where possible, access to grass. Do not be alarmed if you notice your rabbit eating his own faeces; this is normal behaviour and is known as 'caecotrophy'. It enables your rabbit to fully digest its food and prevents it from becoming
deficient in vitamin B12.
Complete Pellets - "Everything Eaten, Nothing Wasted" Rabbits can be picky feeders. Like most of us, they immediately eat the tastiest ingredients, and sometimes leave their least favourite bits. This can lead to your rabbit having nutritional deficiencies, which could result in decreased resistance to disease, poor coat condition and
other health issues. Beaphar CARE+ Rabbit, Beaphar CARE+ Junior Rabbit, and Beaphar CARE+ Senior Rabbit have been developed in
cooperation with vets, nutritionists and prominent rabbit specialists to prevent these problems. With CARE+, left-overs and resulting
poor nutrition are a thing of the past.
The ‘all-in-one’ pellets in CARE+ combine all the nutrients that your rabbit needs in every mouthful. The process by which the ingredients are combined is called ‘extrusion’. This means that the ingredients are mixed together under high pressure and temperature, resulting in the food being sterilised, and making the proteins easier for the rabbit to digest. Every piece of CARE+ has the same composition, meaning there can be no selective feeding, thus, eliminating waste.
The correct hardness, size and shape of the pellets has been carefully studied in order to make sure that the food helps to keep the teeth clean and gently worn down. To further enhance
the smell and taste of the food, a special blend of herbs has been added to the mix.
The main difference between CARE+ and other foods is the quality of the ingredients. The nutrients in CARE+ are of high biological value, meaning they are exactly the same as those eaten in nature. All the minerals are chelated, which means that they are protein-coated to improve their absorption. Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are carefully balanced to keep the heart and blood vessels in optimal condition.
CARE+ also contains FOS (Fructo Oligo Saccharide) and MOS (Mannon Oligo Saccharide), which help to keep the intestines in good condition and promote healthy gut flora. To help protect your rabbit against disease, CARE+ contains natural extracts of Echinacea and Spirulina. Additionally, CARE+ has a cell protection system (vitamin E), which helps the body defend itself against the aging effects of free radicals. As an added bonus, Yucca schidigera is added, which helps reduce the unpleasant smell of faeces - a real bonus for pets kept indoors!
