Deliciously crunchy, these dehydrated Kudzu Chips™ are a light, simple snack for your small pet. They've got that delightful potato chip crunch sound we all love, but none of the unhealthy ingredients! We've decided this year to name them after our bunny-nephew and long-time customer Thumper. Thumper passed away this year but his spirit will always stay with us. Kudzu was one of his favorite treats so we are honoring his legacy by naming them after him!
ABOUT OUR KUDZU CHIPS:
🌿 Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) is a climbing vine that belongs to the pea family. Its flowers and starchy white roots have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.
🌿 Kudzu is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and helps ease digestion. It's actually an invasive plant here in the Southeast so we like to think that bunnies are helping to save the world by eating it! 😜
🐇 100% organic, non-GMO, vegan, cruelty-free; we harvest these straight from our land so you can rest assured there are absolutely no pesticides or chemicals. We harvest, rinse, and then hang-dry for 1-2 weeks to ensure the highest nutrient and flavor content.
🌱 Packaged in 100% compostable bags.
🌾 VARIETY is vital for your small pet. As foragers, they would naturally eat all different kinds of herbs, flowers, barks, and grasses depending on what would be seasonally available. Herbs provide a natural, safe source of of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, fatty acids, and other micronutrients.
📏 SIZE: 0.5 oz or 1 oz pack; please note that sizes of each chip may vary. Discoloration of leaves and brown spots are normal.
🌿 INGREDIENTS: wild-harvested kudzu (harvested from our land to ensure it has never been treated with pesticides/chemicals etc.)
📍 SUGGESTED USE: because kudzu can be a little high in protein, these chips should be considered healthy SNACKS and therefore should only be fed 2-4 leaves and/or 1 stem per day (this can be in addition to your pets' daily serving of treats).
✔️ SUITABLE FOR: rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, gerbils, hamsters, mice, rats, chickens, birds
📌 STORAGE: for optimal shelf life, transfer to an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight
⏳ SHELF LIFE: dried kudzu will stay viable for 1-3 years if properly stored
⚠️ CAUTIONS: not intended for pets under 2 months old. Always introduce new treats and foods slowly. They are intended for the average, healthy pet and should never replace proper veterinary care; if you suspect your pet is ill, please contact a savvy vet ASAP.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Please keep in mind that the dosages we provide are specific to rabbits. We recommend that you consult with a vet for specific dosages for other species.
Per our mentor's advice, we recommend that your pet be 2 months or older to enjoy our treat products. Always introduce new foods slowly and mindfully to ensure they do not negatively affect your pet. Your pet can enjoy our toys at any age under supervision.
Small pets should only have chew toys under supervised play and toys should be removed if your pet begins to primarily consume rather than chew the toy. Excessive consumption of fibrous objects can lead to serious GI blockages. Fibrous products include: loofahs, water hyacinth, edible twine, apple/pear/willow twigs, vine twirls.
PRODUCT PACKAGING: As an eco-friendly business, we try as much as we possibly can to cut down on waste. Therefore, whenever IDENTICAL treats/herbs are ordered (i.e. two bags of Happy Belly Biscuits or five 3oz bags of Blanco's Blend), we always bag them together to reduce waste. We will always respect your wishes if you prefer that they be bagged separately (for example, if you are buying one for yourself and one as a gift) - just message us or write a note on your order and we are happy to do so!
We use 100% compostable, resealable zipper pouches, heat seal bags, and recyclable zipper pouches. Our compostable bags/pouches are entirely industrial or home compostable certified. They have superior strength, are freezer-safe, and have an excellent oxygen and moisture barrier!

Our packaging materials are all recyclable and/or reused from our vendors.
The Well Kept Rabbit is not responsible for accidents, illnesses or injuries that occur from use of our products.
We recommend that you use all of our handmade treats within 2 months for optimal freshness.
Shipping is calculated by weight, box dimensions, and destination. Etsy's algorithm is sometimes spot on, yet sometimes it's way off. We find this to be the case with heavier/larger items like our cleaner and maze havens.
It is our policy to ALWAYS refund shipping overages when they exceed $5 or more.

We are so incredibly honored to have our favorite rabbit shop name a product after my sweet angel bunny Thumper. He passed away earlier this year in April, and that was by far the worst day of my entire life. My sweet Thumper meant absolutely EVERYTHING to me, he was (and will always be) my son. Thumper’s favorite snack was his Auntie Anna’s Kudzu Chips! He would go crazy for them and do a cute little dance everytime he heard the crunchy chips in our hands. We miss Thumper terribly, and we know we always will.. But to know he is remembered by all our amazing rabbit friends is such a beautiful thing. Thumper brought so many amazing people into my life, and I will forever be grateful for everything he ever did for me. Thank you for helping me honor my sweet boy. Binky Free Thumper, we love you so so much.. Forever! - @ThumpersMama
