    Default Dried Beetroot

    I put a bag of dried beetroot on my latest hay experts order and tried Sy on a few pieces just now. I want to find some healthier treat alternatives for him. He seems to like it! Any issues with Beetroot that I should know about?

    I've never tried Beetroot on my rabbits, as we don't eat it ourselves. I'm sure it's OK to feed though. It's probably similar to Carrot in that it's quite high in sugar, but if it's a treat he won't be getting too much

    We just need something to distract him when we are feeding the hamster and gerbils. He goes mad thinking that he's missing out on something! Bless him. He seems happy with the beetroot so far though so fingers crossed

    Beetroot might make his urine red... just so you don't panic.

    Beetroot is fine for rabbits - I often feed the leaves when I eat the beets.

    It can colour the urine in rabbits, as in humans. It's quite nutritious

    The girls go mad for this stuff too

    It's okay as a treat, they get a small pinch a day.
    Could change the urine colour although hasn't for the girls.
