When feeding your pet rabbit you may be inclined just to use pellets. A diet high in pellets can lead to health problems so you will need to substitute other things in as well.
While they may not eat it at first, having hay in their cage is important to a rabbit’s diet. Whether it’s timothy, oat or alfalfa grass, rabbits should be eating some of it by the time they are 6 months old. Eventually alfalfa should be decreased because it is usually intended for younger rabbits.
Who could forget about vegetables, especially the carrots? According to McLeod, vegetables, not pellets, should be making up the majority of a rabbit’s diet. She recommends 2-4 cups of fresh vegetables a day. However, it shouldn’t be just carrots. A variety of veggies like parsley, broccoli and romaine lettuce are all great for a rabbit. McLeod recommends avoiding beans, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes and rhubarb. Make sure that your rabbit is introduced to vegetables slowly and that no ill-effects happen.
Rabbits like fruit as well and as a treat you can give them up to 1 or 2 tablespoons per day if you choose to.
As discussed, pellets can be poor for a rabbit’s health and cause problems with obesity and their digestion. However, they can also be good in moderation when fed in conjunction with the vegetable diet above.
"I love Parakeets. I enjoy how small they are, but also how uniquely beautiful they can be for their tiny size. Mine, Buddy, was one who I purchased a few months back at Pets Plus. I was enamored when I first met him. He had light blue feathers, a white chest with black spots, a golden beak, as well as two little black eyes".....-Robert Upey Read More
"About a year ago Pets Plus sold me a Kitten, Stacey; and I have to say, that she is the most adorable thing ever created! She and I banter often, most of the time she is chasing me around the house, playfully swatting at my feet while I prepare dinner for my roommate and I.".....-Emma Warwansky Read More
"It should be duly noted that the services I received at Pets Plus was incredible. Never have I met such an adept, kind, and diligent staff at a pet store. The store was clean, even though there was that aroma of pets lingering throughout the air. What a comfortable feeling indeed though, it was! ".....-Francis Leon Read More
"About 3 months ago I purchased a puppy from Pets Plus, hoping that she would, in the cliche, become my "man's best friend," or in this case, woman's. I often work late into the evening, as I am an Insurance agent, meeting clients at any hour of the day. When I come home to see my gem, as I aptly named her, "Gem" after her princess-like attitude, she is always ready to greet me with hugs and kisses, or in the case of a puppy, little hops and licks.".....
