It is also a rabbit conditioning supplement containing a combination of completely natural and healthful ingredients: grains, vegetables, seeds, and herbs.
One only needs to use small amounts of Bunny Branola (a teaspoon or tablespoon per day, depending on the rabbit) as a top dressing in order to promote health and a sleek, glossy coat, whether the rabbit is a long-wooled Angora or a short-furred Rex rabbit.
As a high-calorie energy source, Bunny Branola has the extra calories and nutrition rabbits need in winter. Your rabbit will stay warmer and happier during wintertime.
The seeds and fiber in the Branola require chewing, helping to keep your rabbit's teeth and digestion healthy.
Rabbits do experience stress sometimes, and the herbs and nutrition in Bunny Branola help them feel calm and comforted. If your bunny is going to experience any of the following stressors, the Branola will help ease them through it....
5-Star Review from a Happy Customer: "Fresh ingredients that were vacuum sealed for freshness. Healthy treat and our bunnies all LOVE it! Will definitely buy this again.. Well worth the price and a nice option for our rabbits. I am so glad I found your page and your store. Thank you!!" (Kari C.)
Recent shear or wool harvest
Pregnancy or milk production
When travelling or making other adjustments
Rabbits not eating or losing flesh tone despite eating plenty
Other situations can create stress in a rabbit. Good nutrition produces a desirable and healthy physiological response to stress. This helps to minimize the drain on health that sometimes results from stress. (This statement doesn't include internal parasites, disease or injury, just the day-to-day stressful adjustments that rabbits frequently have to make, since they live with humans.)
Just a Tablespoon...!
For an average-sized rabbit of 6 - 9 pounds, it only takes a tablespoon or so to make a big difference in nutritional quality, and therefore overall health and stamina!

Pumpkin Spice, new Bunny Branola autumn flavor!
The effective herbal formulation is changed very little. We added additional pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger, and swapped out the banana in favor of apple. The smell is still divine, with a touch of "holiday!" This formula will deliver the same excellent health benefits, and will also stimulate your rabbit's senses. We think bunnies will love the holiday flavor!
Now you can purchase an assortment of flavors with your purchase! Choose the Multi-Variety Pack option in the STORE, and obtain an assortment of flavors! For example, if you order one (1) pound, you'll receive 8 ounces of Regular, and 8 ounces of Pumpkin Spice.
Additional flavors are in the offing! We'll continue to make it possible for you to choose a selection of flavors of your choice. Your bunnies will love them all!
"Thank you for the Bunny Bran! This stuff is amazing. My new Giant Angora wasn't eating, mildly wool blocked, and this is all she would eat!! I want more! Thank you Bunny Martin; your stuff saved my Giant's life! It's amazing...it got her eating again" (Emily in IN)

Bunny Branola is Available in These Sizes
2 ounces is a one-week trial size, and is priced at $4.00.

8 ounces (1/2 pound) is priced at $11.00. This is a month's supply for 1 rabbit.
16 ounces (1 pound) is priced at $16.00. This is more than a month's supply for 2 rabbits.
5 pounds, is priced at $75.00. This is more than a month's supply for 10 rabbits.
Amounts specified here are sufficient for an average-sized adult rabbit, roughly 6-9 pounds.
Use as a stress reliever: Feed 1 tablespoon on top of pelleted rabbit feed every other day during situations stressful to the rabbit (see above).
Give slightly more if it is cold or the rabbit has recently been shorn – the oils and extra calories help to raise the rabbit’s internal temperature.
Give slightly more if the rabbit has begun to shed, along with a daily handful of grass hay. Extra fiber helps to keep any ingested hair moving through the digestive system, and the variety of ingredients may also help maintain healthy gut flora which will combat GI stasis from the start
Use as a show conditioner: Feed 1-3 teaspoons every day, for 2-3 weeks before a rabbit show
Use as a daily health enhancer: Feed 1/2 - 2 teaspoons every day or every other day to help support daily health, including immune, digestive and dental health.
Use as an occasional rabbit treat: Give 1 teaspoon as a top dressing if there is no other treat
during the day
Bunny Branola was specifically designed for angora rabbits, however normal-furred rabbits will absolutely also benefit from supplementation.
If you are newly adding Branola to your rabbit's diet, it would be wise to keep a close eye on the rabbit's weight at first. This will help ensure that you are giving enough to benefit the rabbit but not so much that it will become overweight.
It's remarkable how enthusiastically the Rex rabbits in our own Aurora Rex Rabbit barn attack the Bunny Branola! Every one of them without fail cleans up the branola almost immediately.
Bunny Branola was originally developed by rabbit breeder Kim Martin, who raised Satin Angora rabbits for wool production, and American rabbits, a heritage breed.
Kim was looking for a way to feed flax and other rabbit super-foods to her rabbits, using natural ingredients instead of factory-made supplements. She went through several recipes, taking the time to find fully rabbit-safe ingredients, testing and verifying old wives' tales and facts with the help of a veterinarian.
Valuable information came from the most important rabbits in her barn, Ralph and Milton, her test-bunnies. If Ralph and Milton liked an ingredient or recipe, chances were good that all rabbits everywhere would also love the new Bunny Branola supplement. If Ralph and Milton's health and lustrous wool would bloom, then the health and condition of "anybunny" was attainable.
Ralph and Milton the test bunnies willingly chewed their way through multiple ingredients and each of the various recipe experiments. Their "opinions" and reactions were the stage I testing for all the research and development decisions.
Kim states, “It's thanks to Ralph and Milton the test bunnies that Bunny Branola has become a rabbit-favorite-food!”
