    AmberUK, Virginia Richardson does a good book on Rabbit Nutrition, it's got colour pictures and descriptions of edible wild plants in it too. I think it costs around 6 or 7.

    Dock leaves are supposed to be fine until the plant starts flowering, then you shouldn't let the buns eat the leaves.

    Louise said:-According to Virginia Richardson in Rabbit Lopeadia BINDWEED is safe to feed. I feed it to my Rabbit's two/three tme's a week and I have done for the past few months with no probs.

    According to Virginia Richardson MRCVS (Rabbit Nutrition book), Bindweed/Convolvulus is listed under the most poisonous plants on page 38.


    Coincidentally I bought the Rabbitlopaedia today and I've checked it does say bindwind is OK to feed whereas the rabbit nutrition book by the same author says that its poisonous. Confusing or what. The rabbitlopaedia also says not to feed cabbage as too much has been found to cause goitre in rabbits.

    yes there are Nic, timothy hay is best if you can get it. Do you know any riding stables, they might have some good quality stuff. We get ours in McCash's in Perth. Ask Angela (Thumps) where she gets hers.

    Hi, a few questions, my rabbits are now having a nice lot of veg and one piece of fruit a day, I have a new very timid GP who is a year old and will not each much. Is it right that they can have more fruit than the rabbits? Can rabbits eat pinapple and can either of them have the green on top of the pineapple? And lastly can they both eat banana skin?
    Thanks for your help

    Claire, GPs need plenty of vitamin C so encourage your shy little one to eat by offering him a nice wide variety of fresh fruit and veges every day. He will soon show you which ones he likes. It's unusual for a piggie to be a shy feeder, cos they generally are little eating machines. Maybe have his general health/teeth checked? Pineapple I know IS good for rabbits (it apparently help prevent furballs or fur blockages or something). About the tops and about banana skins, I don't know. Banana is OK in small quantities (can be fattening).
