It is all too easy to overfeed your bunny. First, they're just so darn cute and we can't help it. However, too much food leads to an overweight bunny and that is a bad thing, Remember, in the wild they were prey animals and had to stay really lean and muscular to outrun all the dangers that lay in their path.
I try to be really careful with just how much I feed my bunnies and it helps them to live a long happy and healthy life. A measuring cup is such a simple step towards that goal.
- Single one cup polycarbonate measuring cup (two shown in photo so you can see the graduated measurements in metric and Imperial)
- Resists breaking and chipping (I've dropped mine several times...still good as new!)
- One piece construction
- Externally marked graduations
- Dishwasher safe
Generally recommended feeding guidelines...guidelines...not hard and fast rules...your mileage may vary.
