Nutrition & Diet

Feeding your rabbit the correct diet is essential to help prevent ill health. Rabbits require good quality hay to be available at all times in order to support good dental, digestive and emotional health. Hay and grass provide essential fibre that keeps the teeth and digestive system in good health and grazing throughout the day will help to keep your rabbit occupied and prevent boredom.

A good quality commercial rabbit food should also be provided for your pet. Many commercial rabbit mixes allow your rabbit to selectively feed, this means it picks out the pieces of the mix it likes and leaves the rest, thus not having a balanced diet. This can be avoided by feeding pelleted foods such as Burgess Supa Rabbit, which means your rabbit receives a balanced nutrition with every mouthful. You can also give your rabbit a small amount of leafy greens each day in addition to the pelleted mix and hay.

Fresh drinking water should always be available for your rabbit.

Any changes in diet for your rabbit should be gradually introduced over a period of 10 days as sudden changes may result in loss of appetite or even refusal to eat.
