This section contains information on what to feed your rabbit and what not to feed it. Incorrect diet can lead to a variety of health issues including obesity, dental disease, sticky bottom and sore hocks so feeding the correct diet is the single most important thing you can do to keep your rabbit healthy.
The main bulk of a rabbit's diet should be good quality hay - they need this fibre to wear down their continually growing teeth and keep their digestive tract running smoothly. Hay should always be freely available to rabbits and should make up at least 80% of their diet.
Alongside this you can feed a variety of fresh green vegetables daily and an eggcup full of dry food (nuggets, not muesli). This is beneficial in providing vitamins and minerals and adding variety to your rabbit's diet.
Fruits and carrots are high in sugar but can be fed as occasional treats e.g. a slice of apple or banana.
