Bunnies are herbivores – that is they eat plants only, no meat. It is important that your bunny gets all the important nutrients that her or she needs – carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and protein so that it be healthy. This section is dedicated to exploring which foods are good for your rabbit, and – just as importantly – what to not feed your bunny.
Adopting a rabbit also means providing them with healthy, nutritious food. Since a rabbit’s digestive system is different from human digestion, knowing what foods are efficient or harmful is best. Many new rabbit owners may be tempted to give their new friend lots of veggies, such as lettuce, green beans and arugula.
If all you ate were carrots all day, you wouldn’t feel very healthy. The same goes for rabbits. They simply don’t need the high sugar content found in carrots, despite their love for them. Bunnies require a balanced diet with a wide variety of vegetables.
Your rabbit’s diet should consist of mostly hay, some rabbit pellets, and fresh greens. Specifically, about 70% of your rabbit’s diet should be good quality hay, pellets should make up about 30% of its diet and some nice greens should be supplemented daily as well.
