I'm happy because she's had less tummy problems since she's had them. She's a rex and prone to gas and stasis.

Reliance of digestive support


Is it a concern that the rabbit may become reliant on the active ingredients in this product for their digestive system to work properly?

  • VioVet Staff

The aim of digestive supportive supplements like this are to support the normal function of the intestinal system. The average healthy rabbit should not need this supplement. Unhealthy or upset intestinal systems benefit from the supportive ingredients within so that they can function normally without digestive support.
In answer to your question, it is not a concern that rabbits will become reliant on this supplement as the aim of the product is to normalise the intestinal system so that it needn't even be used.
If your pet needs a digestive support product for normal function and digestive issues recur after the product is stopped then this is a sign of an underlying problem with the intestinal system. Ideally a vet should diagnose the issue to work out what this is. In some cases lifelong digestive support supplements help manage the cause of these and control the signs.
