Frequently Asked Questions - Food and Hay

Our bedding does not contain the “Big 8” food allergens as stated by the FDA here http://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm079311.htm or common environmental allergens. Our carefresh small animal food contains soy and wheat, and there may be traces of fishmeal.

As a main staple in a rabbit’s diet (when fed as straight hay), alfalfa is generally the best hay for bunnies, and Timothy hay is recommended for adult rabbits. This is because alfalfa is typically higher in protein, and has a better calcium and phosphorus ratio for growth and development. We’ve taken that information into account, and found that alfalfa is actually the best hay to use with our new formula to ensure the diet is complete and balanced for the daily nutrition needs of an adult rabbit.

We removed the shapes and went with more natural and healthy treats like carrots, sweet potato and apple.

Mix the old and new food together over the course of 7-10 days. This helps many pets transition to new formulas a bit easier. 

There are no nuts in our food, but that does not mean it is allergen free or safe for kids with nut allergies. Our carefresh small animal food contains soy and wheat, and there are traces of fishmeal. It is manufactured in a facility that also stores dairy, peanuts and almonds but these are not shared by the same processing and packaging lines. The other “Big 8” food allergens as stated by the FDA here http://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm079311.htm are not present.

Once you open the package, food begins to lose freshness. We recommend storing new food in their un-opened bags until it’s time to use them.

We do not use animals in the testing of any of our products. All our products do go through rigorous quality assurance procedures and third party laboratory testing and adhere to established safety guidelines mandated by regulatory and animal welfare agencies. Our products are made from substances that have a long history of safety for both the humans and animals, and are found in everyday products from both the food and cosmetics industries.
