Insight on Vitamins for your Pet Rabbit

Rabbits need natural vitamins for prevention Toxicity

Vitamin A and D

Rabbits are very sensitive to the active form of vitamin D (D3). It is used as a poison for pest control. Rabbits need vitamin D3 to actively absorb calcium and reduce dirt when calcium is low in their diet. If their diet with high amounts of vitamin D3 and calcium will lead to the development of health problems and possibly death.

It is best to give the rabbit access to sunlight, because UV rays stimulates the natural precursor of vitamin D3 (vitamin D2) in the skin. They can also take natural vitamin D2 from the natural sun-cured alfalfa plants located in high-quality rabbit food. Thus, rabbit it can be converted on an as needed basis.

The association between vitamin D in vitamin A is important because they interact with one another and act as hormones. The vitamin is also fat soluble and can be "saved" for later use. Rabbits are also very efficient at converting natural carotenoids (as beta carotene) Vitamin A. If your bunny rabbits eat foods added synthetic vitamins A and D3, it is possible for the two vitamins that build up to toxic levels in the body. This is particularly true if vitamin A is added with no regard to natural carotenoids already present in the feed. A rabbit food labels will only give you information on the amount of synthetic vitamin A added.

Vitamin E

Synthetic vitamin E contains various "chiral stereoisomers" or various forms of vitamin E. The presence of other forms dilutes the effective dose diet can claim to have, especially if others are not as bioavailable as the natural form.

Recommended dosage of vitamin E increased in recent years. Minimum amount required to prevent nutritional muscular dystrophy, reproductive problems and other health problems. Now current research shows many benefits of increasing the dose of vitamin E rabbits get their food.

Natural Vitamin E is found in all the seed oil from plants. This is because the ratio of vitamin E oil is important. Adding add refined oil (vitamin E deficient) to rabbit food can cause defects.

B vitamins, vitamin K and C

Rabbits are able to produce many B vitamins and vitamin K need (good bacteria in the caecum makes them) if they get a high fiber diet. This does not mean that they get all they need! Studies show that rabbits advantage of the increased feed efficiency and growth by adding some vitamin B in their diet. Healthy rabbits can get enough of their own vitamin C.
