    Default Am I Giving Enough?

    Hi

    Every day I make sure my rabbit has hay throughout the day, she gets her grass when she is outside playing. For her dinner, she gets her pellets, lettuce, cucumber & strawberries.

    Is there anything else you'd recommend giving them to ensure they're getting enough vits/mins?

    Thanks

    Tx

    She has loads of hay each day. She has romaine lettuce which I was told is meant to be high in nutrients? :/

    Hi there and welcome to the Forum

    Here's some info on rabbit diets - but you are right, lots of hay (I use different kinds and vary them to keep the interest up) is the main thing

    i wouldn't be feeding lettuce, cucumber & strawberries every day. instead feed leafy greens as advised by RWAF. i feed kale, a little spring greens, broccoli & herbs. just be careful of gas in greens so just a little at a time

    Hi and welcome!

    Yeah I also agree to cutting out the strawberries and cucumber daily.. and swap for leafy veggies and fresh herbs! Mine have herbs and they love them, coriander, mint, dill, parsley.. all you can easily grow in your garden, plus handfuls of grass and the odd dandelions always go down well. But obviously please introduce new things in small amounts until they get used to them! xx

    Hi Welcome to the forum

    I've found this page really useful https://www.saveafluff.co.uk/rabbit-...ds-for-rabbits

    I think a good variety is the key. I rarely give the same thing two evenings in a row, so one night it might be Spinach and the next, Kale, Spring Greens, herbs etc.

    Would be interested to know more about your rabbit x
