Hay and Your Pet Rabbit

Your rabbit needs a variety of foods to keep him healthy and happy. Your rabbit needs high-quality rabbit pellets, fresh leafy greens plus other vegetables that add nutrition and crunch to your rabbit’s diet. Small bits of fruit make a nice treat. Your rabbit also needs lots and lots of hay. Hay provides roughage to help your rabbit’s digestive system work properly and all that nibbling help keeps his teeth trim. Alfalfa hay has too much protein for adult rabbits so timothy hay is a better choice. You can purchase small bales of timothy hay at your local pet store. You may find fresh timothy hay at feed stores or online. The fresh hay is yummy and adds extra moisture to your rabbit’s diet. Discard old hay daily especially if it has been soiled. Offer generous amounts of hay daily. Learn more from your veterinarian care Marion, IA.
