The UK’s largest pet shop is calling on other retailers to stop selling rabbit muesli in response to the publication of new industry research that proves such foods could cause painful dental and digestive problems.

muesliPets at Home has pulled rabbit muesli from its shelves in response to the report by The University of Edinburgh, and CEO Nick Wood has written personally to more than 25 of his counterparts in the retail sector asking them to delist muesli-style foods.

He said: “As soon as we became aware of this we took the decision to delist rabbit muesli from all of our 345 stores and direct all customers instead to rabbit nuggets, which are a complete food and remove the risk of selective feeding.” 

Further, Mr Wood believes that all retailers who sell the product have a moral responsibility to put pets before profit.

He said: “The results of the rabbit muesli research demonstrate what has always been felt amongst the veterinary community […] I really do hope other retailers follow our example so that collectively we can begin to make a real difference to the welfare of all rabbits by ensuring that they are fed the right diet to keep them healthy and happy.”
