Pets at Home make stance on muesli

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

PETS at Home in Lough­bor­ough sup­ported Rab­bit Aware­ness Week ( June 2-10) by con­tin­u­ing its ban on sell­ing rab­bit muesli, an ini­tia­tive that has been in place since April 2013.

Rab­bit Aware­ness Week (RAW) is an an­nual event, where ex­perts such as vets, pet re­tail­ers, wel­fare char­i­ties and man­u­fac­tur­ers work to­gether to ed­u­cate peo­ple on how to give owned rab­bits the best care pos­si­ble.

This year’s theme is ‘Move Away from Muesli’, which is rais­ing aware­ness around the dan­gers of se­lec­tive feed­ing, en­cour­ag­ing own­ers to use a high-qual­ity, hay based diet.

Paul Man­ners, store man­ager at Pets at Home Lough­bor­ough, said: “We haven’t sold rab­bit muesli at Pets at Home for five years now.

“It’s great that RAW is con­tin­u­ing to draw at­ten­tion to this is­sue and we hope that ‘Move Away from Muesli’ helps make a real dif­fer­ence to the wel­fare of all rab­bits, by en­sur­ing they are fed the right diet to keep them healthy and happy.”
