Thread: Can rabbits have orange juice?

  1. #1

    Default Can rabbits have orange juice?

    As title really?
    Not a lot, just a bit to help take away the taste of foul tasting medicine?

    It's all I've got in at the moment, although I've heard apple and pineapple juice is best, can orange juice do for tonight?

    Do you have any ribena? Blackcurrant squash? Oranges are one of them dividing things with bunnies, sometimes on food lists it will say yes they can have them, others say no Our ronnie stole a whole satsuma the once and it did him no harm. If its only a few mls i shouldnt see it being a problem until you can get some ribena/pineapple/apple juice

    Hope the bunnies are ok? xXx

    I've heard of using pineapple juice for rabbits with wool block, but never orange.

    Yep... to sweeten meds and stuff. I wouldnt advise it daily as its so high in sugar You only literally need like 0.1 ml of it, ive had to use in it the buns water before, and i only ever put 0.1ml in the whole bowl, and they still lapped it up
