These are just a few examples of the RABBIT FOOD I found .. I didnt want to put a major list of the diets .. but from all I read and so far that has been 25 different brands and all have the items I have found in the ingredients.
You would be better to get pure alfalfa instead of rabbit food. Alfalfa is a High Fiber, low protein, low carb hay
Anyway, best of luck to all who try this...
