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 supplement treat specifically designed to support megacolon bunnies.
These supplements 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 RESTORATIVE MEGACOLON HERBAL BLEND (purchase here: www.etsy.com/listing/732137076)
✔️ High VITAMIN C herbs help with improvement in fecal shape and output: rose hips, dill, thyme, and celery seed
✔️ HEALTHY FATS both for caloric value and because fat is needed in the gut for motilin, so it helps increase proper gut function: oats and alfalfa leaf
✔️ ADAPTOGENS for anti-inflammatory and stress reducing effects: Schisandra Berry and Ashwagandha
✔️ GUT HEALTH & MOTILITY AIDS: plantain, probiotics, enzymes, brewer's yeast, ginger root
✔️ IMMUNE SUPPORT: echinacea, slippery elm bark, marshmallow root, and dandelion root
While this treat is designed specifically with megacolon in mind, it can also be safely given to small pets who do not have megacolon.
❗️ 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.

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!
All product boxes, tissue/parchment paper, & labels are recycled.
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.

Our little bunny suffers from megacolon. She has large poops, and often you can find her straining at the litterbox. Poor thing :( Since TheWellKeptRabbit started selling Delilah's Restorative Megacolon Herbs, we've been giving her a tablespoon every day, and she's been having less issues, less sitting at the litterbox looking sad. So we had to try these Megacolon Supplements as soon as it became available! It's been about 2 weeks, and I'm amazed! Our baby's poops are smaller! (Not all of them, you can't cure Megacolon) But these are definitely helping her! Poops getting smaller can be a sign of GI stasis, so I was a little weary, but I've given it some time and she's starting to have normal bunny sized poops consistently and I haven't seen her in pain the past week! Can't wait for these treats to be back soon!
