Poor Quality, Dangerous rabbit food.
While visiting a local pet store about a month back, I was recommended some food by the manager. It was called "Sano" ultramix. The packaging was cheap, clear plastic and the label was printed in black and white. He told me it had "everything your rabbit needs". Being a new owner, I bought the bag (which was surprisingly cheap) and fed it to my rabbit.
The food contains:
Ample dried fruit (banana, papaya, and..apple?)
Oats that had been dyed bright green and red for human viewing pleasure
and a few other un identifiable things.
For starters, nuts and seeds should not be a part of your rabbits daily diet, they are high in fat and contain simple carbohydrates that "may contribute to fatty liver disease, cecal dysbiosis, obesity, and otherwise cause health problems."
The corn commonly found in rabbit food has hulls that are indigestible to rabbits and can cause dangerous health problems.
Another sign of a seedy (ha ha, so punny) pet food is when it is made to be visually appealing to humans.
When I went to talk to a manager about this pet food at the pet store, the man who I assume was the owner, told me:
"I'm a rabbit breeder, so ya corn is actually good for rabbits"
"The colored stuff is just for you to see"
"we've been selling it for five years, its designed by a vet"
Might I ALSO add that I bought both a rat and a betta fish from that store, both died within 2 weeks of me buying them.
The store is Pet Crazy in Canada. I advise you to avoid it, as they have recently began selling puppies, which supports puppy mills, and any animal I have gotten from there has been ill. I no longer buy from pet stores, either. Thanks for reading.
