So I adopted a friends bunny whom I named Hope ..he's probably 4 months old now! I have taken enough guidance from the Internet but still I feel I need to know more since there are no good vets here in India. Can anyone guide me through mandatory stuff ?
I know grass and hay is 100% important. Till date I be only been feeding him coriander and mint. Sometimes basil leaves. He is playful. Jumps like crazy but you know better to be aware than to be sorry

Welcome Hope and her lovely owner :wave:

Here's some great info for you and your rabbit:

On the right side of that page there's lots of useful links.

The other good site is the RWAF:

I love the name of your rabbit, and the photo is beautiful :love:

A small bowl once a day is suitable. You mainly want him to be eating his hay. :)

Not at all. Some of us on the Forum don't feed veg at all, but give herbs or forage instead. My rabbits only get a small portion of Spring Greens, others feed a selection. Does your rabbit eat hay? as this is the most important part of their diet, and/or grass. Bunny should be eating mainly high fibre food as the wild rabbits do. :thumb:

Okay..my bunny is used to eating fresh grass recently I started giving timothy hay..and a friend had suggested data the food bowl should b full all the time. So I have been feeding him wid veggies (coriander, mint and spinach) I give once in d morning. Once in d evening and once in d night.

Sounds like you are doing really well with his diet - coriander & mint are really good as is hay & grass

I should give a small handful of veggies, or whatever forage and fresh grass you can find.

Too much delicious stuff and he won't want to eat his hay! :D

Thank you :) yeah they do but it's difficult to maintain cos we don't have proper vet facilities. So they end up getting sick if not taken proper care.

Yeah that's Wat I thought!! He has been searching for veggies every minute... and won't even look at his grass or hay..will reduce gradually :) thank you!
