With Dental Bites
(Posted on 5/27/12)
Comments: All I can say is my bunny loves this stuff. She doesn't care for ordinary pellet food, with or without fruit and/or vegetables. She hardly touches it. Granted, I try to spoil her with other things like the best hay and supplements to her diet like dried apple and cranberries, but she really does like the Kaytee Crunch with dental bites. She seems to eat the "bites" first but will then eat the pellets as well which is something she doesn't really like with normal pellet food. I suppose if all I gave her was ordinary pellets, she would eat them, but what else does a rabbit have to look forward to in life other than love? Food.
Helps keep teeth short
(Posted on 12/21/10)
Comments: I started using this product about 3 years ago after having to have my rabbit's rear teeth shortened by the vet. His main diet is romaine lettuce and these are just used as treat. So far so good, and am hoping not to see the vet again for those darn growing back teeth.

Comments: I have a male dwarf rabbit who will not eat anything but Kaytee Forti-Diet Crunch, he especially loves the crunchy pieces in it and eats them up before he touches the pellets. When the pet stores around me stopped stocking it, I tried another brand but he wouldn't touch it! Forti-Diet Crunch is the only rabbit food I will buy!

Comments: We recently moved and could not find our bunnies favorite meal in our new town. In fact, we tried to temp them with many different types of similar food. From all natural organic to other brands and our two spoiled little bunnies would not embrace any of the new brands. After a month of enticing, we searched on line and found Petstore.com. Low and behold, they had the Kaytee Forti-Diet Crunch with Dental Bites. These Dental bites are our bunnies favorites. So thank you for bring the happy dance back to our bunnies.
Good pellets for picky rabbits
(Posted on 10/7/12)
Comments: This pellet is being discontinued and I have stocked up on it. I feed it to my rabbit who has digestive issues and this is the only pellet she will eat. If your rabbit is refusing to eat his pellets, give this a try as it seems to encourage them to eat everytime.
