Rabbits

Rabbits are herbivores that have a well-developed caecum ("hind gut") for fermentation of plant material. They require a high fibre diet consisting mostly of grass and hay. Rabbits are unique in that they feed their young an energy dense milk which contains high levels of "milk oil" fatty acids. These have antimicrobial activity and help protect the young from digestive upset.

Our products include Rabbit Milk Replacer, hand-rearing accessories as well as healthy supplements and treats for adult rabbits.

    Directions for Marsupials

    The Good Oil for Animals is indicated for juvenile marsupials for:

    • Boosting the energy content in the milk of particularly fast-growing species such as bandicoots and small carnivorous marsupials.
    • Animals with essential fatty acid deficiency to help promote a healthy skin, coat and cell membranes.
    • Malnourished late lactation marsupials to help increase weight gain prior to weaning.

    Dosage for Juvenile Marsupials

    Use at the rate of 5mL added per 100mL of milk formula and mix thoroughly. Introduce gradually to avoid digestive upset. Do not over-supplement, as this will dilute the concentration of other nutrients in the milk and may lead to nutritional imbalance.

    Note that all Wombaroo Milk Replacers already contain sufficient fatty acid content for their target species. Supplementation with The Good Oil for Animals is only recommended in the specific cases outlined above.
