Burgess Pet Care has added two new products to its award-winning Excel range for small animals.
Burgess Excel Parsley Pieces and Excel Blueberry Bakes are complementary feeds suitable for rabbits and guinea pigs, made using natural ingredients and available in 80g packs.
The baked snacks were launched at Interzoo, in Germany in May, after consistently positive feedback from international suppliers as Burgess continues to expand its export portfolio.
Alex Thorne, brand manager at Burgess Pet Care, said: “Feedback from customers on these delicious new additions to the Burgess Excel range has been fantastic. They’re naturally healthy, high in fibre and don’t contain any added sugar, making them an ideal complementary feed for rabbits and guinea pigs that owners can trust.
“These tasty treats are ideal for hand-feeding, too, helping to keep small animals socially enriched and build the bond between animal and owner. We’re positive rabbits and guinea pigs will love the taste of these snacks that are a natural fit to the Burgess Excel feeding plan which recommends a diet made up of 85-90% good quality feeding hay supplemented with nuggets, fresh greens and tasty snacks.”
The Yorkshire-based family business says it will continue to raise awareness around the importance of correct nutrition and support the hard work of independent retailers and the veterinary sector following this year’s Rabbit Awareness Week campaign. 
Burgess Excel Parsley Pieces and Burgess Excel Blueberry Bakes are available now through specialist wholesalers.
