At Burgess, all our nuggets and nature snacks are created with the highest quality of ingredients to ensure a fantastic taste. Along with our 100% natural feeding hay, which is dust extracted for respiratory health, we provide an array of options to help create a comfortable environment for your animals.
A suitable diet for your rabbit comprises the correct amount of hay, nuggets, leafy vegetables, healthy treats and water, based on their size, age and lifestyle. We understand the difficulty that comes with calculating this – especially when your animals may vary along different characteristics.

The science of animal nutrition has come a long way, and we are committed to not only staying abreast of developments in this field, but being part of it. We have actively been involved in research that highlights the risks associated with muesli diets and the negative impact these have on hay intake, which is imperative for a rabbit’s health.
Such is our dedication to rabbits that we created Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) back in 2006, in partnership with the RSPCA, PDSA and Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund (RWAF), among others. With the goal of increasing rabbit welfare, RAW brings together hundreds of retailers, vets and charities to promote the right rabbit diet, health and environment. The event also aims to educate rabbit owners on the need for company and risks relating to unsuitable housing, space and diet.
We have a delicious range of rabbit treats at Burgess Pet Care. They’re tasty, nutritious and great for digestive health. They also help to replicate a rabbit’s natural environment, and are great for their wellbeing too.
There are various types of hay available to buy for your pet, including Timothy, Oat Wheat, Pasture, Paddock, Meadow or Ryegrass hays. We use fresh Timothy hay in our rabbit food, which includes: ‘Excel Timothy Hay Box’, ‘Excel Long Stem Feeding Hay’ and ‘Excel Feeding Hay with Dandelion & Marigold’.
Healthy feeding hay and leafy vegetables are great for rabbits’ teeth, as well as twigs from trees such as hazel, willow and hawthorn. As the RWAF states, “[rabbit] owners often don’t realise how crucial it is to look after their rabbits’ teeth, or the wide range of painful conditions that tooth problems can cause’’. As a result, it’s important that pet owners provide their rabbits with a healthy diet.
