Another unique treat by The Well Kept Rabbit - "With virtually nothing on the market for megacolon bunnies, especially holistic/natural support, we knew we had to take matters into our own hands for our special megacolon bunny, Delilah. So, after a lot of diligent research and consultation with our mentor Lucile Moore phD, we developed this nourishing treat specifically designed to support megacolon bunnies. While this treat is designed specifically with megacolon in mind, it can also be safely given to small pets who do not have megacolon."
These tablets are a mixture of antispasmodics, anti-inflammatories, and herbs that specifically help with absorption of nutrients, countering irritation in the gut lining, and soothing mucous membranes of the GI tract. They are best when used in conjunction with our Megacolon Tonic Herbal Forage.

NOTE: This treat is an adjunct/complementary approach to the megacolon disorder by adding nutritional support, as a lack of nutrient absorption is part of the disease process. It is NOT a substitute for medication. The most important thing is medical management and working closely with a rabbit-savvy vet who believes in megacolon as a diagnosis/congenital disease.
