    Default How much does your bunny drink?

    Bodmin seems to drink a whole bowl throughout the day. Maple will drink half. I have never had a bun that drinks that much. He is very runny roundy compared to Maple. Is this ok?

    Atticus drinks a load

    The amount is 100ml per kg of body weight per 24 hours, my vet said and that's what we aim for for Atticus when he's unwell, but he drinks like most of a 1L bowl a day

    Are those big ceramic dog bowls a litre? Boo drinks about two thirds of one of those, Joey doesn't drink much & nor does Mousey.

    Tui doesn't drink much. Tethra used to drink a lot more, possibly about half a dog's bowl.

    50ml-100ml/kg/day is the average

    Rabbits fed a lot of fresh veg etc drink less than those fed a mostly dry diet

    A Rabbit drinking a huge amount more than the average merits a Vet check to rule out any heath problems x

    Archie and Pip share a rabbit mason and cash bowl. They drink nearly all of it in a day between them. But it does vary, in Winter they drink much more.

    Pip started drinking substantially more when she had teeth problems.

    Not a lot, but they have a lot of fresh food.

    Blossom drinks loads, a bowl a day usually. Vet said to keep an eye on increases/decreases and she pees loads.

    Its definitely worse when stressed which the vet said wasn't too unusual.

    Rodney drinks much less maybe a third of a bowl but he gets wet veggies too. Although he seems to be picking up drinking more from Blossom.

    I just looked on the website and the eco bowl he has is 0.75L I think. Will have to get oh to check that though x

    On the initial change from fresh food to 'sorry mate, just hay and bramble', they'll get through about 1L of water minimum, then it calms down to about half that, but we have 3 bowls and the outside ones gets topped up by rain so I dunno the real amount TBH. Chibbs drinks more than Lopsy and is more active.
