Pet Care & News

When it comes to feeding your rabbit, it's essential to provide a balanced diet. Rabbit should have a diet made up of 80-85% Hay, 5% pellets, 10% fresh forage and treats. A balanced diet can include a variety of fruits and vegetables. But not all fruits and veggies are created equal. Some are high in sugar, which can lead to weight gain and other health issues. So, what fruits and vegetables are best for your furry friend? Which ones are not safe at all and which can be used as a daily feed?

Low Sugar Fruit and Veg

Rabbits can enjoy a variety of low sugar fruits and vegetables, such as leafy greens like kale, spinach, and roman lettuce daily. Other good options include bell peppers, zucchini, and cucumber. These foods are not only low in sugar but also high in essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals. Vegetables like cucumber are particularly good in summer when you want to avoid dehydration. All of these can be fed daily as part of a balanced diet for your bun!

High Sugar Fruit and Veg

While some fruits and vegetables are safe for rabbits to eat daily, others should be given in moderation due to their high sugar content. Fruits like bananas, grapes, and cherries should be limited to small amounts as occasional treats. Vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes should also be fed sparingly as they too have higher sugar content which can cause digestive discomfort and lead to weight gain. 

High Sugar fruits like strawberries, blueberries, and apples can be a tasty treat and healthy option for your rabbit once of twice a week. Just remember to offer them in small portions to avoid overfeeding and keep an eye on those golden poos! 

Manage Weight

It's important to monitor your rabbit's weight and adjust their diet accordingly. If your rabbit is overweight, focus on feeding more hay and fewer high sugar fruits and vegetables. Regular exercise and playtime can also help keep your rabbit at a healthy weight.

Digestive Health

Rabbits have sensitive digestive systems, so it's crucial to introduce new foods gradually to prevent digestive issues. Make sure to provide plenty of fresh water and hay to support your rabbit's digestive health. If you notice any changes in your rabbit's appetite or droppings, consult your veterinarian.
