If you think your rabbit is getting too much calcium, one way of offsetting it, is to increase the amount of Vitamin E in the diet.

Here is a study from the Journal of Urology, and it shows that an increased amount of Vitamin E in the diet of a rabbit reduces the blockages sometimes associated with too much calcium.

Thanks Bob. But where do you get the vitamin E from?

You could just buy the capsules, and put it on the food they like the best...

Or you could select food items high in Vitamin E.
