About Food4Buns

Bunny lover making healthy natural treats for small furries.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about me.
Food4buns was started to give rabbits and other herbivores a more natural diet without resorting to molasses, grains and chemicals to make them colorful.
Like the organic trend with human food, we believe rabbits deserve the same.
Feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, comments, or pictures of your adorable pets.

I moved here from Germany and was quite shocked when I learned that in the U.S. bunnies are still considered "poultry" not pets. To have your bunny treated, you need to look for an "exotic" vet ... if you ask me, it's strange that the third most common and popular pet in America is called "exotic". Although they are certainly very special 😊

After moving to the U.S. I searched the internet for days to find the kind of hay and herbs my bunnies had loved so much in Germany. After weeks of research I stumbled over a wholesaler from quite a different branch and after reading so much about pellet food in forums here I decided to offer my own herbal and flower potpourris.

A high quality pellet surely contains many vitamins and fiber but in a healthy wide range diet why would be the need for it?
Although there are raccoons and other animals strolling over the lawns at night making the grass unhealthy for our bunnies, especially in times of a RHDV2 outbreak in many States, there are still ways to provide them with a great diet without or very little pellets.
America talks organic and then you see commercials for fruit and protein shakes providing you with the necessary vitamins, when you could simply eat the fruit or veggie itself. It is the same thing.
Although our life is hectic and stressful, it is my firm belief that because our pets cannot choose what to eat we have to take the time to make not the fast, but the healthy decision for them...

I discovered my love for bunnies many years ago when I was a little kid. Someone had baby bunnies and I was thrilled to go and take a look. After much begging I was allowed to hold one of those little adorable fluff balls and ... it peed on me. ;-) I was in love! Lol
When I was a teenager my parents allowed me to have a bunny on my own. Charly moved in. There was no internet and living on the countryside naturally makes getting information hard. So although Charly had enough room to roam he lived alone on the balcony. Charly sadly died of e.cuniculi or that is what I believe now that he had. He went to the vet but went undiagnosed. They didn't know what it was.

Many moons later my bunny girl Eddi moved in.
We bought her at a pet store unfortunately, we simply didn't know where else to buy a bunny. Shelters in Germany work differently. A lot of times you won't find small animals there.
Eddi got a really big playpen in our living room. It must have been around 75 square foot. Still...after a couple of weeks I noticed that Eddi became less active. She wasn't sick, she was just missing company. And although we were playing with her and petting her we couldn't be there 24/7 especially not at night when the house was dark and silent.
I found Jango in the private classifieds section of someone who was told he had two bunny girls... sadly, this happens a lot.
So we drove several hundred miles to pick him and bring him home.
The bonding was pretty unspectacular. I had it all planned out and stretched the getting to know each other time over 2 weeks but in the end, we found Eddi lying in Jango's playpen relaxing by the litter box.
It took them some time to figure things out but nothing but a little chasing occurred. Bonding very young bunnies under the age of 12 weeks is so much easier.
They needed of course one or two weeks to actually start cuddling but since they seemed to like each other from the start.
Unfortunately, Eddi had tragically died of a pulmonary embolism at the young age of 2.5 years so Betty moved in to ease Jango's grief.

Betty was a baby and there was no real bonding. Jango saw her and licked her nose through the fence. We took away the playpen around her and let her out. No fighting, no nothing. Just love on first sight ❤️

That was the time we brought our bunnies over from Germany to the US on a Lufthansa flight. Since leaving them was not an option for us, we had it all planned out very well and it worked out alright.
Bunnies getting adjusted to a new timezone was interesting. Since they're naturally more active at night they must have been quite confused. I often wondered what they were thinking.

We added new piggy family members to our household in 2012 after a foster failure and many have come and gone since then.
We lost Jango at the ripe age of 10 years old in 2016 and Betty died this year February 2020 at almost 12 years old! New bunnies moved in after that because one thing remained the same over the years and that is my absolute passion and love for the little guys. ❤️ :-)

    I have always loved bunnies and made it my mission to provide them with the best nature has to offer...without adding sugars and and grains like most industrial made treats. I'm currently the proud mama of four bunnies and two guinea piggies.
