Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Do you have an ingredient list for these rabbit pellets and do they contain vitamin C?

A. After calling the manufacturer apparently, there is no available ingredient list for this product. They also said that there may be some incidental vitamin c in this product via the lucerne but they weren't sure if there was any present or how much. They suggested that rabbits be fed fresh vegetables to provide vitamins like vitamin C, as pellets are generally high in minerals but low in vitamins.
