Rabbits need a wide and varied nutritional plan to grow strong and healthy.
The best foods for rabbits are:
- Pellets- nutritious pelleted foods formulated specifically for rabbits serve as a good overall meal.
- Timothy hay- Rich in fiber, Timothy hay helps the rabbit avoid problems like hairballs and diarrhea.
- Alfalfa- Very high in calories, protein and calcium, alfalfa should only be given to adult rabbits in small quantities or a as a treat.
- Dark green vegetables: Rabbits should balance their diet with vegetables like parsley, spinach, carrot tops and broccoli leaves and stems for a long and healthy life.
Keep in mind that older rabbits need to have their meals portioned; they will eat almost all that you serve them and with all this food, fresh water must be available at all times.
