** New 1.5kg Tub ** A nutritionally complete and balanced diet for rabbits, formulated for urinary tract health. 

Supreme, the makers of the Science Selective range, have worked closely with leading professionals to create the VetCarePlus range which consists of nutritionally targeted diets to help combat commonly presented health problems in rabbits.

Rabbits have a very unusual calcium metabolism. In cats and dogs, calcium absorption is regulated at gut level, and is adjusted according to the body’s requirements. Any excess dietary calcium passes through and is excreted in the faeces.

However, in rabbits, calcium absorption appears to be less well regulated, and indeed appears to be proportional to dietary calcium levels, irrespective of requirements. Excess absorbed calcium is therefore excreted through the urinary tract, often resulting in urine high in calcium precipitate.

Sludge in the bladder can result in discomfort and disease in predisposed animals. Vetcare Urinary Health Rabbit Food, provides a nutritionally complete and balanced, daily diet for rabbits of all breeds and life stages (from 20 weeks+).

It is suitable for long-term feeding to rabbits that are susceptible to urinary tract disorders.

Formulated with timothy hay, a low calcium source of fibre, VetCarePlus Urinary Tract Health Formula is fortified with ingredients that can be beneficial to the urinary system whilst providing high levels of fibre, 28%, with long fibre particles that are ideally suited to a rabbit's physiological needs.

A generous blend of Cranberries and Blueberries provides antioxidants, which help to maintain urinary tract health. Dandelion & Nettle combine to act as a gentle diuretic, and help stimulate routine renal function. Echinacea and added Vitamin C (500mg/kg), also help to support the immune system and fight infection.

The fibrous nature and physical properties of this monoforage diet will encourage regular water intake and uniquely extend the feeding time, resulting in added dental wear and improved environmental enrichment.
