What Do Rabbits Eat?
Rabbits should have unlimited access to hay at all times.
Rabbits should be fed approximately one cup of fresh veggies per 4 pounds of body weight day.
Rabbits should be fed a measured portion of pellets every day.
What Kind of Hay?
Adult rabbits should be fed timothy hay, orchard grass, meadow hay, or bluegrass hay. Young bunnies (less than 6 months old) should be offered alfalfa hay in addition to the above hays listed.
Feed veggies that are low in oxalates and high in fiber, and try to include a source of Vitamin A daily. Rabbits love leafy greens such as cilantro and romaine lettuce. Good sources of Vitamin A include carrots, parsley, and dandelions. Feed fruit sparingly.

Select a pellet that contains at least 18% fiber and that does not contain seeds or nuts. Reliable brands include Oxbow, Sherwood Pet Health, and Small Pet Select.
