Rabbit Food

When somebunny is hungry, feeding her the right type of rabbit food, like rabbit pellets and rabbit hay, can help her live a long, healthy and happy life. Fiber is one of the most important parts of her diet because bunnies have sensitive stomachs. She also requires the optimum protein and nutrient levels, which can be reached with the right diet.

Like for many other small friends, there are a variety of rabbit pellets available to choose from. Many pellets are made with grass hay and packed with essential nutrients. You’ll also find combination feed filled with yummy additions like seeds and dried fruit. While your furbaby will love finding those special treats, some become picky and end up eating only the sweets! You can amend this issue by feeding her standard pellets and adding rabbit treats periodically.

Rabbit hay is one of the most important parts of her diet. It provides numerous vitamins she won’t be able to get from rabbit pellets alone—plus it’s filled with fiber to help keep her tummy happy. Her teeth never stop growing, and nibbling on the hay also supports dental health. Just like her wild relatives, she also enjoys eating produce. Leafy greens are particularly healthy and she can enjoy other fruits and veggies in moderation.

Whether you’re bringing home a new baby or shopping for your old friend, there are more rabbit supplies needed to help her live hoppily ever after. Explore your options for rabbit habitats, and consider whether a rabbit cage or rabbit hutch is the perfect place for her. You’ll want to surprise her with rabbit toys so she stays busy. Whoever you’re shopping for, Chewy has the rabbit food and small pet supplies you need to take care of your petite buddy.
