Bunnies, like us, like a nice dinner. Your rabbit will be healthy and happy if you feed him a balanced diet of hay, veggies, pellets, and fresh water. Continue reading the approach to rabbit food and treats for your pet rabbit.
Fresh hay should make up the majority of your rabbit’s food and should always be accessible. Adult rabbits should be given timothy, grass, and oat hays, whilst younger rabbits should be fed alfalfa. Because of the higher protein and sugar content, mature rabbits should not be given alfalfa. Hay is beneficial to rabbits because it supplies vital fibre for digestive health and helps wear down a rabbit’s (constantly growing) teeth for optimal dental health. Because rabbits eat hay and poop at the same time, placing hay at one end of a litter box will encourage use of the litter box.
Your rabbit’s regular meal should include a wide variety of veggies. When selecting vegetables, look for those that are fresh and pesticide-free. Always properly wash your vegetables before giving them to your rabbit. Feed new vegetables in small amounts until you know how your rabbit will react to them. Houseplant leaves should not be fed to rabbits because many are harmful to them.

Your rabbit must have access to fresh water at all times. A hanging water bottle is a good solution if you have a cage. A rabbit will drink from a water bowl as well. You can put an ice cube or two in your rabbit’s water dish on a hot day. If your rabbit does not appear to be drinking enough water, you can provide the vegetables slightly damp.
Bunnies will turn their noses up at stale pellets, so buy them when they’re still fresh. Look for pellets with a high fibre content and a low protein content. As your rabbit grows older, you’ll need to reduce the number of pellets he eats.

Everyone enjoys a treat now and then, but treats should only be provided on rare occasions to maintain your rabbit’s health. Breads, crackers, pasta, pretzels, cookies, chips, and cereal are all heavy in carbohydrates and should not be fed to your rabbit. Many commercially manufactured bunny treats, such as yoghurt chips, are heavy in fat and sugar and should not be fed to bunnies. Chocolate is harmful to rabbits, so never give it to them.

Fruit is the finest option for a reward, but due of the sugar content, you should only give it in modest amounts. We strive to buy organic fruits that are known to be pesticide-free. Make sure they’re well rinsed, just like veggies.
