Rabbit & Bunnies!

What Do They Eat? Bunny Care Tips?

Rabbits and bunnies are herbivorous animals with a diet primarily composed of plant-based foods. They require a foundation of high-quality hay to ensure proper digestive health and teeth maintenance. Fresh vegetables should be included daily, providing essential vitamins and nutrients. Limited quantities of rabbit pellets, formulated for their nutritional needs, can supplement their diet. Fresh herbs can be given as occasional treats, while fruits like apple slices and strawberries can be offered as a sparingly treat due to their naturally high sugar content. Rabbits and Bunnies can play with toys, and providing toys and enrichment items is beneficial for their mental and physical well-being. Playtime and interaction with toys can help prevent boredom, encourage natural behaviours, and provide exercise for rabbits. It's also crucial for their benefit to always provide clean, fresh water and to keep their enclosure clean. A balanced and diverse diet promotes the well-being of rabbits, taking into account their sensitive digestive systems and individual preferences.

Rabbits and TOYS?

When choosing toys for rabbits, it's important to consider their safety and suitability:

  1. Non-Toxic Materials: Make sure the toys are made from non-toxic materials that rabbits cannot ingest. Rabbits tend to explore items with their mouths, so avoid toys with small parts that could be easily chewed off and swallowed.

  2. Chew Toys: Rabbits have continuously growing teeth, and providing safe chew toys helps keep their teeth in check. Toys made from untreated wood, woven grass, or cardboard are excellent choices for this purpose.

  3. Interactive Toys: Toys that encourage physical activity and problem-solving are beneficial. For example, tunnels, treat-dispensing toys, and puzzle feeders can engage rabbits' minds and bodies.

  4. Hiding Places: Rabbits like to have places to hide and feel secure. Providing tunnels, cardboard boxes, or fabric-covered hiding spots can make rabbits feel more comfortable in their environment.

  5. Variety: Rotate toys to keep the rabbit's interest and prevent boredom. Introducing new items periodically can help keep them engaged.

  6. Supervision: Always supervise your rabbit when they're playing with toys, especially if it's a new item. This helps ensure their safety and prevents ingestion of any parts.

Remember that while toys can be a great addition to a rabbit's environment, their primary sources of nutrition should come from hay, fresh vegetables, and a small amount of rabbit pellets. Toys should complement their diet and well-being, not replace it.
