House Rabbit Dietary Recommendations

Download Resource

A rabbit’s diet should be made up of high-quality pellets, fresh Timothy hay, fresh water, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Hay and pellets should be available 24 hours a day. Fresh veggies should be give twice per day and fruits should be limited to a treat, but no more than two times per day in small amounts. Rabbits prefer to drink from a bowl like a dog. However, if your bunny continuously knocks over his bowl, you may want to switch to a drip-style water bottle that hangs from the side of the cage.

Hay is essential to a rabbit’s digestive health. It provides necessary roughage that reduces the danger of hairballs and keeps the gut in working order.

Below is a guide of appropriate fresh veggies, leafy green and fruits.
