Rabbit knowledge

Rabbits aren’t picky eaters. In fact, they’ll eat just about anything. Rabbits actually have a rather delicate digestive system, and need plenty of fiber every day. A good rabbit pellet food is necessary along with timothy hay or alfalfa hay. Both hay and pellets need to be given fresh everyday, with unused portions being discarded.

Of course, rabbits love fresh vegetables and carrots . Avoid giving cabbage (too gassy), celery (too stringy), lettuce (no nutritional value) and asparagus (too pungent). Although vegetables can be given everyday, they should not dominate the diet. Uncooked peanuts and dried fruit, such as banana chips, can be given occasionally in small quantities as a treat.

A Note About Water
Many small animals can survive without water for long periods of time, however, they will not be as healthy and their life span will be shortened. They will be thinner, their coats will not be as healthy, and they will be much more aggressive without water. Although you may give your pet vegetables and fruits as part of its diet, they are not a replacement for providing fresh clean water every day. Always provide your pet with fresh water.
