yes, they can have very small bits ofit. Some people use it daily (about 1 tsp full) and some useit less often. It's great for loose or soft stools..... andhas actually helped some of the bunnies (like mine) with their harderdry stools....

They can have it cooked if you want, but they love the dry, rolled oats right out the canister :)

At my store, if we ever see soft stools in a bun,we immediately give them tons of Timothy hay and rolled oats.It usually clears them up, especially when it is cause by stress.

My buns get it once a week and they love it!

Plus it lowers cholesterol! :p

Bo gets a "pinch" he eats out of my hand at least 2 times each week, if not more.

He can hear the "oatsie" cabinet LOL!

Mind you, I'm sure other stores will have the samething. Max is slowly putting back on her weight.We're giving her a tbsp a day, only problem is, the kits eat herleftovers! :? Wee fatties!

I think it probably is. It's just rolled oats. You cook it in water and make oatmeal.

I am of the understanding that oats puts on hardflesh, as opposed to fatty tissue, and is sometimes used by showers tocondition their buns prior to shows. I feed it daily in a smallamount(tsp), but I usehulless oats obtained from a feed store@ $10.50 for 50 lbs.

I break down the 50 lb bag into individual 10 lb see-thru plastic bagsand freeze them all, opening an individual bag when and asneeded. Usingit in that manner, my six rabbits willgo through 50 lbs in about one year's time.

Hulless oats are oats without the hull, but not processed as in oatmeal for human consumption. Whole oats still have the hull on them,providing more fiber. Crimped oats have the hulls"cracked,"for whatever reason(s) I know not, but still provide theadditional fiber.

I would use the whole or crimped oats for the additional fiber but forone doe, Maizie, who persists in eating the kernels and spitting outthe the hulls, making a clean up job necessary. Hulless keepsthings tidy.
