Papaya Fruit Plus 90 Tablets
Definitely makes a difference!
I've owned several rabbits over the last couple decades. Lifespan of 10+ years is not uncommon in my warren. :-) Rabbits are very secretive about their health, because they have to be, to survive in the wild (predators "weed out" the weak/slow ones first).
So the best way to monitor health, is by keeping an eye on the size and consistency of their "berries" (pooh/pellets). Good size, well formed/rounded berries that are dark in color with a slight glisten on the surface (when freshly "laid"). Are a good sign of a healthy gut, and a happy bunny!
One papaya tablet a day is the rule here at Prairie Creek Rabbitry. I typically see a 10-20% improvement in berry consistency and production after a few weeks of once-a-day. PLUS my rabbits are ADDICTED to them. They ALL stand up and beg each morning for their daily allotment.
They LOVE them and they are GOOD for them. And after all, isn't quality of life what enjoying a loved one is all about?

Healthy treat for healthy digestion
I started giving these to my bunnies about 5 years ago to see if it would help prevent blockages and bouts of GI stasis, which they seemed to be prone to. I give one a day for maintenance and 2 a day when they're molting. I can't prove that it's the papaya tablets, but ever since they started taking these on a regular basis, they have not had anymore bouts of gas, stasis, or blockages. And they think it's just a yummy treat!
Of course, it's just as important to feed a good quality pellet, fresh veggies, and lots of grass hay. But the papaya tablets are a great supplement to a healthy rabbit diet.

Nice vitamin works as treat
I used to give my rabbits this vitamin for years, they enjoyed it and it was the first thing they ate when I gave them their bowl.
It worried me that it was sweet for them and that's why they liked it so I stopped buying them. After years (6 or so) I bought them again, I decided to try again because oxbow reformulated the pills. I now give my rabbit half a pill instead of one. He enjoys it. The thing I still don't like is the coloring, which is added.
