If your rabbit is a great hay eater (more than 50% of the diet by weight) then we recommend using the other concentrated adult formula that allows you to feed less pellets.

Grain & Soy-Free, and formulated with premium Timothy Hay, whole safflower, whole flax seed, and chelated minerals to promote digestive health and a shiny fur coat! This is formerly known as Maintenance and Support.

Sherwood’s unique formula uses alfalfa (instead of the commonly used soybean meal) because it is a more natural, healthier and balanced source of protein that rabbits are adapted to. It is blended with premium grass hay and fortified with additional nutrients. Veterinarians agree that this diet is superior to the grain/soy based diets on the market today.

By the time bunnies reach about 11 to 12 weeks of age they are "teenagers" and need to switch to a diet that is lower in energy and fortified with specific nutrients. This helps them mature without getting fat. In fact it will help them stay trim and active and you'll know that they are healthy on the inside because you'll see the difference in the quality of their fur coat on the outside!
Your bunny will live a healthier and ‘hoppier’ life.

*We only use high quality cleaned whole ingredients and grind them fresh just prior to pelleting. Our custom blend of whole oil seeds, essential amino acids, and chelated minerals perfectly complements and balances the nutrients already naturally found in the food ingredients.

Feeding Directions: For rabbits that don’t eat enough loose hay (at least 50% of the diet by weight) this hay-based, grain/soy-free food provides the additional hay they need. It is a balanced, fortified and complete food low in calories that contains additional Timothy hay to provide correct amounts of long-strand fiber for proper digestive health. As a result rabbits will regulate their own food intake. It will also help overweight rabbits shed excess body fat and help underweight rabbits gain healthy weight and improved muscle tone by supplying a proper balance of the essential nutrients needed for optimal health.

Caution:Store food in a dark and dry location.

  1. Bunny love!

    Posted by Caroline on 18th May 2017

    As I have tried several brands of bunny pellets, my sweet bunny won't eat any other brand! He loves and asks for his Sherwood pellets thru out the day so we have to pace him so he eats enough Timothy hay and his daily green veggies. Thank you, Dr. Sherwood that I can trust the ingredients. Very happy

  2. The buns love it

    Posted by i_am_not@me.com on 17th May 2017

    We have 2 rabbits. They love these pellets and fight to see who is first to the bowl. They get a regular diet of pellets and hay ( to eat at their leisure) and greens once a day. They are very healthy and have maintained their normal weight. They just had their annual vet check and he was very pleased with their health.

  3. Saved my bunnie!

    Posted by Nathan on 15th May 2017

    New to the rabbit game I was feed improperly. She was only eating the junk in her store bought food. I thought she was getting enough fiber from the lawn . She out in all day until night. Not he case. She needed the right fiber. After a vet bill I researched online and came across Sherwood . SHE LOVES THIS FOOD! She is soft, energetic, no longer upset, and stool is normal! Get recovery food as well. It is nice to have just in case. I also immediately started feeding the digestive supplements and continue to do so. She is 6 lbs. I give her three a day. The combination of this great food and the digestive supplements quickly brought her back-to health . Shipping is fast and I would highly recommend this product for any rabbit owner ! I rarely write reviews on products. I felt that I must Share what this has done for us.

  4. My Rabbit Approves!

    Posted by Gigi Gaillot on 15th May 2017

    Since ordering Sherwood adult rabbit food I feel so guilty that my seven year old rabbit had not been eating Sherwood food earlier in his life. I had a LIttle bit of his old food left over and it was nothing in comparison! Sherwood's food smells like fresh hay and the dark green color is amazing! Bun Buns is so happy and is much more content!

  5. the best

    Posted by gennaro labato on 8th May 2017

    the best i have found....

  6. Great pellets!

    Posted by Dr. Mimi on 8th May 2017

    These contain really high quality ingredients and my bunny loves the taste! A scoop of these pellets, fresh timothy hay, and fresh veggies make for a really well-balanced diet. It is great to finaly have pellets that DON'T have extra unhealthful ingredients (like fillers and sweeteners) that my bunny absolutely does not need to be eating. Thanks for making a great product I feel good about feeding my bunny!

  7. Best food for rabbits

    Posted by James on 4th May 2017

    This is by far the best food you can buy for you bunnies

  8. The only rabbit food I would buy

    Posted by Anna on 3rd May 2017

    I feel really good about giving this food to our bunny, as it is grain free, and free of any fillers such as what you find in most pet store brands. I found it interesting that while many rabbit care websites say absolutely no corn or soy for rabbits, most mainstream rabbit foods contain both. To say nothing of the fact that they are genetically modified, full of pesticides etc etc. Like I said, Sherwood Forest's rabbit food is the only type I buy. And our bunny LOVES it!

  9. Rabbit wouldn't touch

    Posted by Jessica Savitt on 2nd May 2017

    After reading everyone else's stellar reviews, I purchased the 4.5lb bag for my bunny who sniffed at it and refused to touch it. I tried mixing it with my rabbit's previous food (which she liked), and she still didn't touch it. So now I have a full bag of food she'll never eat. Waste of money.

  10. Wonderful food!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Apr 2017

    I absolutely love this food! When I found out that the majority of bunny food was made with corn, wheat, and soy by-products and was produced by Purina. I knew that my bunnies weren't thriving. I found Sherwood and fell in love with their ingredients. My bunnies also LOVE their food!

  11. Only the best for my buns!

    Posted by Shane on 25th Apr 2017

    When our adopted bun, Cash, first arrive at our home he was plagued by gas and soft stool. We were feeding him Oxbox pellets because that's what everyone said was best for him. But after reading the ingredients in the Oxbow pellets vs the ones from Sherwood, we decided to give the Sherwood pellets a try. And sure enough, after about a week Cash was no longer "smelly" and his droppings were of normal consistency. That was three years ago and we continue to feed only Sherwood to both of my rabbits to his day

  12. Fantastic pet food

    Posted by Grace on 25th Apr 2017

    I've been a loyal customer to Sherwood for a few years now. I trust the food to be a healthier choice than what I find at the pet stores. My rabbits are maintaining they're previous weight problems now, and are very enthusiastic when it comes to pellet time. I wouldn't choose any other!

  13. Excellent

    Posted by S Kumar on 18th Apr 2017

    I got these pellets for my rabbits when the other brand I was using was discontinued. I have severe celiac disease, and I can't even have any wheat products in the house, or I become extremely ill. I had been using another brand that was gluten free and still had oats, but it was discontinued. I discovered Sherwood pellets by searching online and was amazed to discover that they are completely grain and soy free! My bunnies love them and I can feed them these right out of my hand with no ill effects to me. The bunnies seem happy and healthy with them and their fur is very soft. They love it when dinner time comes around and they can have their little handfed dinner. These pellets smell very fresh and the bag lasts a pretty long time with 2 smallish buns.

  14. Wonderful

    Posted by Kathleen on 14th Apr 2017

    Our rabbit loves these pellets! We got a rescue bun in sad shape in January and since we have fed her these pellets, her coat is so much softer, shinier, and fluffier. She looks amazing. They both beg for pellets! With the other food (before Sherwood) there were always left overs. I recommend these for all rabbits. Quality is wonderful. Thank you, Sherwood.

  15. BEST PELLET AROUND!

    Posted by Ali on 13th Apr 2017

    Bunnies love this and so do I!
    Hay based so no need to worry when my bunnies aren't eating as much hay as I'd like. Tried so many pellet brands when my minlop was a baby. She didn't eat all of her cecotropes due to imbalances of protiens and calciums in other brands. I guess she could just smell the imbalance and didn't care to reingest them which is paramount to building healthy gut flora and immunity for bunnies- especially babies! I did have to build up the amount of even these pellets over time but it didn't take long and both my bunnies do great on them! I'm also impressed with reliability of shipping. Items from Sherwood always cone by anticipated delivery date and most times before. We love Sherwood!
    Ali,

  16. Bunnies love it

    Posted by Lex on 11th Apr 2017

    I'm glad that all my bunnies love this food because it's really healthy for them. I used to only give them timothy hay because most pellets contain unnecessary fillers such as corn or wheat, but the Sherwood pellets don't. In addition to their hay and some leaves of bunny-proof herbs or veggies, I'm giving my bunnies a little of the Sherwood adult pellets twice a day and the bunnies are happy and healthy and they also look healthy (I adopted my fur babies from a shelter and they had very thin and matted fur back then).

  17. Hands down the best bunny food!

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Apr 2017

    We have 18 rescued bunnies who have been eating Sherwood for over 18 months. The bunnies love this stuff! It smells and looks so fresh unlike the other well known brand we use to use. Their coats are shiny unlike ever before. Sherwood for life!

  18. Rabbit Meadows rabbits LOVE Sherwood

    Posted by Sandi on 3rd Apr 2017

    We had two long-term super nice rabbits who were having problems being adopted because of soft poops. No one wanted a house rabbit who would soil everything, wherever they went. One would leave a trail of poop all over carpet or hardwood floors.
    “Casper,” a fuzzy lop, was cute, social, adorable and we tried him on the Adult Sherwood pellets. After 4 days his smushy poop was gone! We gave him a haircut to remove all of the stains for a fresh start. Amazingly the poop problem has NOT returned!
    “Milkshake” had soft misshapen poop since the day we met her when she was just 4 weeks old. Something seemed clearly wrong with her digestive system. None of her poop was the usual hard, round droppings we’re used to. They were large or oblong or tiny or misshapen and she was now a year and a half old. After switching her to the Sherwood food, it took just over a week, for the change in her. And then suddenly all of her poop was firm and round!
    We are so happy to report that because of their Sherwood diet, both were adopted last weekend! And I’m certain they’ll live happily ever after because of Sherwood.

  19. No more urinary sludge

    Posted by Lauren Hales-Beck on 1st Apr 2017

    I have a large breed rabbit (American/Flemish mix) that eats a large amount of pellets due to his size. I originally bought a local brand food that quickly gave him urinary sludge with uncontrolled pooping and lethargy. I quickly order Sherwood noting with the natural ingredients urinary sludge would dissipate and in a few weeks it did. I am now a believer in Sherwood adult rabbit food and prefer these pellets to the professional rabbit food as they have a lower amount of alfalfa (therefore protein). Additionally, my rabbit eats less pellets now from free feeding on this brand which I didn't dare do before on the local brand.

  20. rabbit food

    Posted by Linda Keon on 1st Apr 2017

    Every time I try this food with buns they love it. Good to have alternatives.

  21. Excellent food!

    Posted by Carmen Paxton on 19th Mar 2017

    We have had house rabbits for over 25 years. Sherwood Forest pellets are the best quality we have ever. Within a month of transitioning our rabbits to Sherwood their fur is much softer, has less tendency to mat. It also reduces the smell of their urine. They have maintained healthy weight and have had no sludge issues. We highly recommend Sherwood Rabbit food!

  22. Our bunnies love their pellets!

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Mar 2017

    We have been feeding Sherwood to our bunnies for a few weeks now. All of the bunnies had been eating other brands when we got them. They all easily transitioned to Sherwood and seem to love them! Our little doe is shedding terribly so she is loving the digestive tablets too!

  23. This Stuff Has To Be Made With Magic Fairy Dust

    Posted by Erin B. on 14th Mar 2017

    Two of my senior rabbits had "poopy butt" consistently for years. They had countless veterinarian visits, including numerous tests and procedures to attempt to identify or remedy the condition. I tried switching their diet around, even eliminating pellets in favor of hay and fresh vegetables. Nothing seemed to help and I eventually resigned myself to a life of daily carpet cleaning and giving "butt baths" to the bunnies. Then, I discovered Sherwood Pet Health. Since switching over to Sherwood Pet Health pellets, I have never again had to clean up "poopy butt." Not once. I placed my first order nearly a year ago, so that's a pretty significant difference. I was spending so much time and money on replenishing my stock of cleaning supplies and purchasing new rugs once the old ones wore out. Sherwood Pet Health has been an absolute game changer. As happy as I am, I imagine the bunnies must be even happier to feel healthy and clean and no longer have to endure the dreaded bathtub on a frequent basis. I also have young rabbits, who have never had pellets from any other source than Sherwood Pet Health. The bunnies love the taste, their behinds are clean, and we could not be more satisfied. Every human companion should know about Sherwood Pet Health products. I'm sure that 10 out of 10 bunnies would agree.

  24. Rabbit that barely ate pellets...

    Posted by Shannon on 6th Mar 2017

    After I adopted Calvin, he barely ate pellets. Within a month, he was devouring your pellets! Now he can't get enough (although I do limit per day).

  25. Great Food

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Feb 2017

    My rabbits love this food. Litter boxes are less stinky also.

  26. Amazing Quality

    Posted by Yari Knobler on 24th Feb 2017

    The quality of the food is obvious, especially when compared to other pellets. The Sherwood pellets look a lot greener , the texture looks better. They also smell fantastic, I know it's a little strange to say this, but the Sherwood pellets smell really good. Even my Bunnies' Vet agreed. The bunnies look really good, they have shiny coats, their urine is not as strong smelling either. The bunnies LOVE it. Every day I feed them 1/4 of a cup and they never leave anything in their bowls. I highly recommend this food. I will never purchase anything else.

  27. Best food available

    Posted by Terry on 23rd Feb 2017

    The best you can get, all our buns love it.

  28. NOTHING BETTER

    Posted by TIM on 22nd Feb 2017

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT SHERWOOD TO FEED YOUR BUNNY, LOOK NO FURTHER. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BETTER OUT THERE.I HAVE DONE ALOT RESERCH.I WOULD STAKE MY LIFE ON IT AND MY BUNNY WOULD STAKE HER LIFE ON IT ALSO. IF YOU WANT A HEALTHY BUNNY, BUY SHERWOOD

  29. Outstanding Rabbit Food

    Posted by Julie Blakie on 20th Feb 2017

    My rabbits absolutely love these pellets. Their coats have become very thick and soft, since starting them on it. The shine on their coats is absolutely amazing. My Flemish Giants have put on weight that I struggled to put on them with other feed. I am most appreciative of the expedited delivery on every order. I order every 3 weeks and my delivery has never failed to arrive on time.

  30. BUNNY LOVES

    Posted by TAMMY L HARRISON on 18th Feb 2017

    Her coat is shiny & soft & much less poo butt

  31. Bunny loves & thrives

    Bunny loves & thrives

  32. Trix are for kids, Sherwood is for rabbits

    Posted by Admiral Wallaby's family on 15th Feb 2017

    Thrilled to find a feed without molasses or soybean meal. We were curious about palatability, but all our rabbits like the smell and taste. It seems to have a hay odor they find appealing. Our rabbits are all good hay-eaters.

  33. Sherwood Pet Rabbit Food - FOR THE WIN!

    Posted by Bunny Nature on 9th Feb 2017

    I have tried other bunny foods for my four furry friends and for the past 2 years have been loyal to Sherwood.. This has been the best product for their digestion. When I started feeding them this I noticed a significant increase in their energy level with lots of running around and digging holes. Their fur is also very healthy looking as well. Would highly recommend anything from Sherwood.

  34. Adult Formula..the BEST!

    Posted by Cathy on 6th Feb 2017

    I will feed no other brand to my Lionhead
    girls. It keeps them healthy and no problem
    ever with wool block on them. I tried
    something else once and learned there
    is no comparison. My Buns are happy
    and healthy!

  35. only food I'll use

    Posted by Melissa on 4th Feb 2017

    I've been using this for five years now for my Jersey Wooly who refused to eat hay. When I first ordered this, I mixed it in with his old food and he actually picked through the pellets, only eating the old stuff--reminded me of a little kid who prefers cookies over vegetables! But when I finally just fed it to him straight and now he loves it!

    I am planning on getting three rescue rabbits next weekend and I have a question: since my current rabbit refused to eat hay, I have just stuck with this food and would rather not try to find a source of hay. Is timothy hay the absolute first choice for rabbit food (along with the "Professional" pellets) or can I just go straight to this stuff? Would I be doing my new bunnies a disservice by not even offering hay?

    Biologist answer: This food will work for rabbits who do not eat hay. However you can also feed hay free choice with the pellets. All grass hay is nutritionally similar. Those rabbits who eat enough hay (more than 50% of the diet by weight) should eat a measured amount of the more concentrated pellet (PROFESSIONAL).

  36. I'll use nothing else!

    Posted by Corbyn the Magnificent! on 28th Jan 2017

    My rabbit loves it and his fur is beautifully shiny and soft now. He sheds less and his droppings are looking a lot better now too. I did a lot of research before finding Sherwood, and it's really the best there is. I'm confident my rabbit is getting the best.

  37. Healthiest Bunny Food in Existence!

    Posted by Diane Hook on 24th Jan 2017

    I have 20 Holland lops that have eaten strictly Sherwood for nearly two years now. My bunnies have very few digestive problems and have been thriving. I encourage all of my customers to keep their bunnies on Sherwood because it is the healthiest rabbit food on the market. Great product!

  38. Healthy rabbits

    Posted by Margaret Wilder on 11th Jan 2017

    Sherwood Forest adult rabbit food has visually improved my two rabbits health. Their coats are shiny and very soft. There's less shedding and their eyes are brighter. I'm not kidding! Also, their urine is much less pungent. When I gave them regular pellets, my female would have odd poops. I will never stop feeding my babies Sherwood Forest! They eat mostly jay but every other day they get a bowl full and they love it.

  39. Top Quality Products

    Posted by Charles Baskerville on 4th Jan 2017

    Top quality products and GREAT customer service!

  40. Great product

    Posted by Elissa on 2nd Jan 2017

    Our rabbit never has any trouble eating this food. She is extremely healthy, which I contribute to her diet.
    We once ran out of Sherwood rabbit food and ran to our local pet store to feed the bunny while we waited for the next shipment. The food from the store smells gross and was brown. Sherwood food smells sweet like hay and is green - a great sign that is fresher and better for our pet. We make certain to order before we run out!

  41. Noticeable difference!!

    Posted by Ryan on 29th Dec 2016

    We thought we were giving our rabbit (7 yr old mini rex male) the best pelleted food out there, oxbow natural science adult food, but we had a few issues with stasis as he became older. Then we came across Sherwood pellets, and was so happy to see that the ingredient list was so short and did not have any added sugars in the form of wheat middlings among others that every other pellet has. I know that people worry about alphalfa, but we have not had a single issue with it in the two months we've been feeding it so far. Our rabbit now has a noticeable increase in interest again and is more active than he was. This is an excellent choice, especially for an older rabbit. Young rabbits may be able to handle other pellets, but if I had known about Sherwood sooner, I would have been feeding this all along.

  42. Bunnies Happy

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Dec 2016

    Best pure feed...bunnies love it and are very healthy..feel like they are getting the best..coats are shinny and soft..stools are formed well. Bunnies are excited to run to their bowls to get their fresh smelling food they eat all of it now picking thru it..

  43. The only choice for our rabbits

    Posted by Robert Dreyfus on 25th Dec 2016

    Have 21 rabbits and we feed them Sherwood Pet Heala Adult Rabbit food. All of the rabbits eat the pellets. I would not consider feeding them anything else. Great product.

  44. Awesome Rabbit Food

    Posted by Stacey on 21st Dec 2016

    I have been using Sherwood Rabbit food for the last 2.5 years. I can not say enough about how fabulous there products are! I am not being paid or given any kind of compensation for giving my review. This company does not need to, there products speak for themselves! My 2 bunnies love the fresh pellets!

  45. Seriously a miracle product!

    Posted by Kristi Campbell on 20th Dec 2016

    My Alice came to me four months ago with a jaw abscess, molar spurs, and showing signs of GI stasis. She had to be syringe fed Critical Care for the first 6 weeks she lived with me, and had two surgeries and intensive home therapy to treat the abscess. It was *very* difficult to get her to eat on her own again! She had zero interest in hay or pellets, she barely picked at greens, and I was beginning to wonder if she'd be on Critical Care forever when a rabbit rescue friend suggested your food.

    It was an immediate hit! I mixed it with her Timothy pellets, but there was no point because she just picked around them! Suddenly it was simple to transition her to a normal bunny diet, and her appetite has remained consistent ever since, even after a fairly traumatic spay last month!

    Her weight is perfect (she was thin when I got her). She's moulting right now, but I can already tell that her new coat is absolutely gorgeous! We've had zero digestive issues, and the mild sludge that was present in her early weeks with me is gone. We've also had no more dental issues- the abscess still shows no sign of returning, and no spurs have reformed! She still doesn't have much interest in hay, but her poops are plentiful, and perfectly formed. I've also noticed a significant drop in urine odor even before her spay.

    I seriously cannot say enough good things about your product, your food saved yet another bunny's life! Thank you so much for all you do to provide the best nutrition to our furbabies!<3

    P.S. I also want to thank you for the sample pack of the digestive aid, they really came in handy the week of her spay!

  46. Fresh food our rabbits love.

    Posted by James on 19th Dec 2016

    We are always searching for what's best for our rabbits and this food tops the list.

  47. Great food

    Posted by Bryan on 12th Dec 2016

    Although my pet rabbit doesn't eat it it arrived 7 days after being made. Amazingly fresh.

  48. My bunny loves his food

    Posted by Kaitlyn Elswick on 8th Dec 2016

    Besides the post office here in Park City holding my bunnies food for 4 days without telling me it was there. The product is great! Abu (my bunny) LOVES his food. He has been going thru puberty and has changed very much the past couple weeks but his food intake has stayed the same. Cannot wait to purchase food again!

  49. Magenta recommends =)

    Posted by lisa edmondson on 2nd Dec 2016

    Magenta is a 9 lb Calif-X. Two problems. She is a sludgy girl and at times soils her bottom. She has been on the Sherwood chow for some 10 months now. Her bottom now is clean 99% of the time. Her yearly x-ray though shows she still has sludge and needs subQ fluids. I'm pleased with the progress Magenta has made. Everybun is different and Magenta probably has genes and tendency to chubbiness that aggravate her problems.

  50. Best bunny food ever

    Posted by Mum 2 4 Buns on 2nd Dec 2016

    Sherwood Forest makes the best quality rabbit food available. Our 4 buns are thriving on this food. They are all rescues and 2 came to us underweight and malnourished. They recovered quickly on this food, and all our buns have been on it for 5 years now. Their coats have never looked better. We've had fewer GI bouts too. They love their pellets! The customer services is great, we always feel like we are supporting a nice family. There is nothing better on the market.
