Burgess is a family run business which has been passed down the Yorkshire based family for centuries. They started manufucaturing animals feeds in the 60's and today Burgess Excel is one of the leading UK manufacturers catering for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, rats and ferrets. They formulate their recipes with assistance from their in-house vet and nutritionist, using only local, natural ingredients. The Health and happiness of pets is their #1 goal and they invest in education and welfare.
Their food is formulated on the basis that Rabbits are ‘Fibrevores’, meaning they need to keep their digestive systems busy with a mix of two kinds of fibre moving through the gut at all times. Rabbits who are fed on muesli-style foods often miss out on essential fibres as rabbits will often selectively feed (cherry picking the high starch elements of the diet).
