When most people think about a rabbit’s diet, they think about bugs bunny and how all he eats is carrots. Well… believe it or not, rabbits do not just eat carrots. In fact, it’s not good for them to eat a lot of carrots and they could get sick if they eat a lot because of all the sugar in carrots.
A rabbit’s diet should consist of water, fresh vegetables, timothy hay, and timothy hay pellets (and a treat once in a while😉). Depending on how big your rabbit is you should give them about a cup to three cups of leafy greens a day. Timothy hay pellet’s you should give about 1/4 cup for every five pounds the rabbit weighs. And you should always have an unlimited amount of timothy hay and water.
Here is a list of foods they can eat and can not eat. When I put a small amount by the food that means only a tablespoon.
Foods Rabbits Can Eat
Small amount of bananas
Small amount of apples
Small amount of carrots
Small amount of raspberries
Small amount of strawberries.
Small amount of Cucumbers
Small amount of spinach
Foods Rabbits Can Not Eat
Remember, rabbits are herbivores so they only eat plants. Don’t feed them any junk food or meat. It could kill your rabbit. Be cautious about how much fruit they can have because fruit has a lot of sugar in it. They can have fruit, but it’s more of a treat than their day-to-day diet.
Hello! I hope every one is staying safe! Today I am going to share photos of my rabbit. Here name is Foo foo, after the song little bunny Foo foo. Also when you look at the photos you will see lots of loose hair, that is because it is shedding season.
I hope you liked this post! Hopefully I will be able to do more photos of her. ~ Raegan
