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 (author of Rabbit Nutrition and Nutritional Healing amongst other well-known rabbit care books), we developed this powerful yet gentle restorative blend specifically designed to support megacolon bunnies.
Delilah's Restorative Megacolon Herbal Blend is 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. Plantain is a wonderful gut-motility herb, and echinacea of course is a powerful immune booster. Dandelion and milk thistle support the liver. Schisandra berry is an adaptogenic herb which has anti-inflammatory and stress reducing effects. High vitamin C herbs like rose hips are included as well (Vitamin C helps with improvement in fecal shape and output).
While this blend is designed specifically with megacolon in mind, it can also be safely given to small pets who do not have megacolon.
❗️NOTE: This blend 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.

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.

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!

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.
