To Care For Your Bunny
not feed your rabbit lettuces, we don't
recommend any because of their ability to
dehydrate rabbits too quickly. Carrots,
apples, natural banana chips, black
sunflower seeds, parsley, papaya enzyme
tablets, basil, dandelions, and popcorn ( no
butter) are my favorite rabbit treats.
2. I also insist on fruit/nut tree branches
when they are growing fresh (with the leaves
still on them) to wear down their teeth.
Rabbits need Timothy hay or Orchard Grass -
these are hays that should be fed to your
bunny. Do NOT give straw or regular hay,
there is no nutritional value.
3. Also many people buy alfalfa cubes at the
pet shop and too much alfalfa can constipate
rabbits. I recommend every three days that a
rabbit receive at least one of these
'treats' to help break down the hairballs in
their stomach. Because an average rabbit has
a softball sized hard hairball in it's
stomach and by 4 years old that will
eventually kill them if it's not managed
4. Please also be mindful that Rabbits are
highly sensitive to heat, rabbits should be
kept indoors and cool.
