Diet for Rabbits

A variety of different fruits and vegetables should be part of your rabbits diet. Daily food should include both rabbit pellets and hay (preferably Timothy hay).

In addition to those staples, it's good to feed your rabbit fresh fruits and vegetables daily. A good rule of thumb is 1 cup of vegetables per 4 pounds of body weight. Although rabbits love both fruits and vegetables, there are certain things they should not eat, as it can make them sick, or even kill them.

Don't feed your rabbits:
