  • Foods to avoid feeding your rabbit:
  • Beets (sugary)
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Chocolate (NEVER give this to any pet - it is poisonous to most)
  • Corn (rabbits can't digest the hulls of the corn kernels)
  •  Diatomaceous Earth - this is made from finely ground shells, and even the highest quality can have edges which act like razor blades against the thin lining of a rabbits stomach lining. Do not use for food or litter.
  • Fresh peas
  • Grains
  • Green beans (can cause gas)
  • Iceberg lettuce (and any light green lettuce leaves - they are high in water content but low in nutrients and may cause diahrrea) - can be gven in small amounts or when you have no other greens to offer, but watch the output for soft stools
  • Legumes
  • Nuts
  • Onions (see this page)
  • Pelleted food with seeds mixed in (it's a treat to the bunnies but the seeds cause stomach problems)
  • Potatoes (white or red)
  • Seeds of any kind
  • Starches of any kind
  • sugar, in any form (small quantities of treats are allowed, but no more than a tablespoon of fruit or raisins or anything containing any types of sugar)

 

Foods that contain compounds that destroy nutrients:

  • Sweet potato
  • Cassava
  • Bamboo shoots
  • Maize
  • Lima beans
  • Millet
  • Bracken fern
  • Tea leaves
  • Coffee plants

If you allow your rabbit an outdoor run, please clear the area of leaves as the rabbit may find them very tasty, but they are very dangerous!! (see also this page on cyanide poisoning)
