More FAQ about Hay

Q12) Are rabbits more at risk from myxi from farm hay than processed hay?
A12) Wild rabbits don’t tend to have mites. It is possible that fleas or ticks could be present in the hay, and go on to bite and spread disease, but this is a pretty insignificant risk.

Q13) Is there any proof that readi grass can lead to bladder issues?

A13) It’s higher in calcium than timothy, and lower in water than grass, so in susceptible rabbits those foods would be preferable, but it is not a significantly greater risk in itself.
