Hay
Rabbits should be offered unlimited amounts of hay. It’s essential to keep things moving, digestively. Timothy, orchard grass, and sweet meadow grass (as a treat) are some of Eames’s favorites. Alfalfa is fattening and high in calcium.
Vegetables
I has a question! Could I has more delicious treats?
Veggies are the second most important item in a rabbits diet. They should be fed 2 cups of chopped veggies daily, per 6lbs. of body weight. 75% of that should be leafy greens, and 15% can be non-leafy varieties (about 2 tbsp. per 6 lbs body weight. You can find a more specific list of vegetables on the House Rabbit Society’s site.
Fruit
About 10% of a rabbits daily diet can be fresh fruit. This is only about 2 tbsp. per 6 lbs. of body weight.
Pellets
Rabbits should have about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of pellets per 6 lbs. of body weight. The pellets should be fresh, with a high fiber count. Never buy pellet mixtures at pet stores, they’re fattening and often contain things that aren’t good for them even when they are “made for rabbits”.
Water
Gimmie gimmie!
Fresh water should be supplied daily.
