Rabbits are herbivores. Provide lots of fresh hay (dried grass) like alfalfa, timothy or oat, together with a limited quantity of quality pellets (that do not contain nuts and corn), fresh fruits (without seeds) and green leafy vegetables. To provide calcium, feed your rabbit hard vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower once weekly. Carrots have high sugar content so limit your rabbit’s carrot intake to once weekly.
Rabbit Owner’s Timetable:
• Rabbits clean their own fur so they do not need a bath. You can use baby wipes (without alcohol) to clean their paws if they are
• Feed your rabbit papaya tabs or a slice of fresh papaya or pineapple daily during shedding periods to prevent fur blockage in
• Provide your rabbit with a cage with solid flooring as cages with wire floors can be uncomfortable for rabbits and can damage
• Rabbits prefer to be on the ground and do not usually like to be picked up. An adult caregiver should be the one to pick up the rabbit whenever necessary.
• Support the whole body and especially hindlegs if you carry a rabbit.
• Make your house safe for your rabbit by keeping all wires, plants and other dangerous items out of reach.
