    I think seedless grapes are OK and my bunnies love them

    Yep, Anne's right, grapes are fine but only as a treat as they are full of sugar too. I go for the seedless ones only, as I'm not sure about grape seeds. Grape seeds are small enough to cause blockages if not digested properly, so I personally don't give them. Also grapes help to rid toxins from the blood (allegedly!). You can feed them the stalks as well providing you remember to wash them and the grapes first. You can buy vine balls as rabbit toys..............somewhere on the net but I can't remember where!

    ok again id like your opinions as ive read many different things!!

    how much should i feed my rabbit ? some sites / books say unlimeted amounts to under year old bunnys , and some say go by weight of bunny.

    Mubby gets pellets mainly but he likes the " luxury food " as it was called from the petshop , the red and green and yellow crunchy stuff & seeds ! ( sorry not explaining very well!lol )

    should he just get the luxury stuff as a treat ? i usually put a small corner of it in his bowl next to his pellets ??

    also talking of pet shop treats.... ive bought yogurt drops and crunchy carrot biscuits... are these ok ? im guessing they are as they are made for rabbits!!

    and those seed stick things that hang from the cage ? ive also seen ones like " popcorn and honey sticks" ??? but i was worried about the sugar in those!


    please advise!! i dont want to have a fat unhealthy wabbit!!

    Not sure about feeding a young bunny, maybe others can help you there. There's also a link to the RWA info site on feeding here http://www.houserabbit.co.uk/rwf/articles/feeding.htm

    I personally don't give any type of sweet treats ie yoghurt drops, chocolate drops, biscuits, honey sticks, etc, even if bought from a pet shop. They are not really necessary, can make a rabbit fat, cause tooth decay, and wreak havoc on the gut system. Pet shops only sell them to make profit, they aren't a good idea at all (no matter which brand makes them!) unless used very very sparingly and only as a treat. I prefer to give my rabbits healthy treats like a blueberry, a grape, a bit strawberry or raspberry, much tastier and much healthier! And please do NOT give dried fruit, there's no point, give them fresh all the time and only small amounts occasionally. Great for using as a bribe!
