Bad Rabbit Food: What NOT To Feed Your Bunny

You'd think that feeding rabbits would be easy. Just chuck any old plant matter into the cage and have done with it, right? Wrong. This feeding methodology is an excellent way to kill your bunny or make it very sick indeed. Knowing what to feed your rabbit, and especially what NOT to feed it, is a very important part of rabbit care because some of the foods that might seem great are, in fact, incredibly dangerous.

#1: Most Lettuces

As a general rule, you shouldn't feed your rabbit lettuce, which contains lactucarium, which can give your rabbit diarrhea so bad that it becomes fatal. Iceberg lettuce contains laudanum which can be harmful in large quantities. Yes, some lettuces are worse than others. Some claim that it is okay to feed them small amounts of Romaine because it contains the least amount of lactucarium of the common lettuce varieties. Some people report that their rabbits enjoy (and don't die from) eating small quantities of lettuce, but still, it's best err on the side of caution.

But leafy greens are very good for your bunny: See the list of alternative greens below.

#2: Certain Common Vegetables

Other common foods to avoid include cabbage, parsnips, swedes (rutabaga or turnip), potato, and tomato leaves. Vegetables that contain higher levels of oxalic acid (like spinach, mustard greens, and parsley) can be dangerous, especially in large doses. Onions, leeks and chives can cause blood abnormalities.

There are plenty of good and tasty foods that you can feed your rabbit, so save these for the compost or maybe your own table if you're a fan.

#3: Certain Wild Plants and Grasses

If you let your rabbit roam free in your garden or home, make sure that you don't have any of the following plants growing in places that are accessible, as they can also be dangerous to your bunny:

  • Anemone
  • Arum Lilies
  • Buttercups
  • Bluebells
  • Clover
  • Daffodils and other bulbs
  • Dahlia
  • Deadly Nightshade
  • Delphinium
  • Fairy Primrose
  • Foxglove
  • Hemlock
  • Honeysuckle
  • Iris
  • Ivy
  • Jasmine
  • Larkspur
  • Poppies
  • Primulas
  • Snowdrops
  • Tulips

In general it is best to restrict your bunny to grass-only-areas with no clover in them. Clover can cause gas, and rabbits have no means to expel it, which can lead to bloat and death.

What Should I Feed My Bunny?

  • Safe foods to feed your bunny include hay (preferably Timothy hay, as it contains the most nutrients, and not alfalfa, as it tends to contain too much calcium). There should always be plenty of hay available for your rabbit every day.
  • Fresh foods such as peas (English and snow), kale, bok choy, Brussels and other sprouts, celery, wheat grass, watercress, collard greens, squash, bell peppers, and broccoli. Sweet things like carrot, apple, and banana can also be fed in small amounts as treats.
  • Reputable pellets from a pet store can be fed in small amounts, but they should not form the bulk of a rabbit's diet.

If you are introducing a new, untested ingredient to your rabbit's diet, consider starting small and gradually increasing the amount. That way, if you see any sign of upset stomach or diarrhea, you can immediately avoid that food. Plus, it's a good rule of thumb to make sure your bunny gets a little bit of a wide variety of foods rather than a bunch of one kind, so keep this in mind, as well, and don't get into the habit of feeding the same foods over and over.

A little care in choosing appropriate food can make a huge difference in your rabbit's health and happiness.

Hello I have read through all of these comments and remember there are no stupid questions but I did come across one I found interesting it was the one about consuming arsenic, just so you know as humans we do consume arsenic. Google search toxins and poisons naturally occurring in foods. Then search all preservatives and their chemical make up. Daily humans produce and consume more toxins than they actually realize.

Hi I bought my rabbit to show for the fair he's a Califorian rabbit but I didn't know they were going to get him sold and killed. My mom paid as much money for me to keep my rabbit alive. Well since we had him he's a sweet rabbit, he's like a little puppy! People say not to feed them this and that, well I feed him whatever he likes. He'll smell it before he eats it and if he likes the smell and thinks it safe he'll eat it. My rabbit is an outdoor pet. At night he goes inside his cage or if it gets too hot we'll bring him inside until it cools down. My rabbit absolutely hates Timothy hay, I've bought him more than 10 different name brands. I gave him some alfalfa to see if he'll like it, and he absoultely loved it so we fed him that as part as his diet. He hasn't died or got sick so it's safe for some rabbits.

My son purchased a Norwegian Dwarf for Father's Day two years ago. He's a real character. Rabbits crave attention so don't be afraid to pet them and give them lots of love. I named him Dexter. He was on his way to be live feed for snakes. I can hardly believe that breeders sell these cute creatures for snake consumption. My rabbit loves pears, bananas, apples, carrots, rolled oats and timothy hay. I find that Oxbow has the best products on the market. I've had rabbits for30 years. He lives in my apartment and has freedom to roam the apartment. He's partially litter box trained. I give him a small amount of alfalfa once a week. Fresh water every day. He loves when I chase him around the apartment. He has a nice life. I have to take him to the vet to have his nails clipped. Iy's too stressful for me to clip them. The last Norwegian Dwarf I had lived 1 years. He was a sweet rabbit. I've had better luck with male rabbits than females.. Rabbits are very curious little animals. They are high maintenance and are not a pet to bget for small children as they require a lot of work.

Bunny's belong INSIDE! I have had my bunny 6 years now. He gets lots of timothy hay, he does NOT get tap water. I give him spring water with bunny vitamin drops. NO iceberg lettuce!!

Mine loves, kale, green leaf lettuce, cilantro, dandelion leaves, green carrot tips, curly parsley, spinach, dark tips off romaine. Greens are important. Make sure U ive high quality pellets as well. NOTHING from a supermarket. Carrots are NOT a food source either, more of a treat. Too high in sugar. I give him a few pieces a week & a slice of apple & banana once a week. Keep the water clean as well as the cage. LOTS of timothy hay!! Fiber is big for them.THey like to play & chew on empty toilet paper rolls which is OK. It keeps them busy & teeth trimmed. Good luck!

DO NOT FEED ICEBERG LETTUCE AND CUCUMBER TO YOUR RABBITS, for goodness' sake!!! Please, please, go to for more info on proper rabbit care and consult your vet if your rabbits are sick and NOT pet shops! Majority of the pet shops are IGNORANT to the wellbeing of rabbits. Their only purpose is sell you the rabbits (mostly from backyard/unethical/illegal breeders) and let you deal with the animal. The WORST place to seek advice from are the pet shops!

Hi everyone,I have 2 rabbits that died today Ted was nearly 9 years old and Thumper about 8 1/2 both were in good health last night.

I gave them half an Iceberg lettuce each and some carrots and cucumber yesterday thinking it was a treat in this warm weather but after reading the threads on here to try and find a reason I realise it was a bad idea,they have had iceberg in the past but in small amounts,please take care with your feeding we have had rabbits for years but never knew about this as always thought it was a natural food.

Petshops should give more info ????

dave 3 years ago

Have been reading through the posts and it seems to that a lot of people on here should forget about getting a rabbit as a pet as they clearly have no clue as to how to look after them. Rabbits are not like cats, dogs or other pets..they are very fragile in the sense that so many things can upset the balace in rabbits leading to ill health and worse still "death". Think of raising your rabbit in the same terms as raising a dealing with a new baby we learn from others within society, others experience becomes our experience which we pass on. Ask questions, read articles and books, google all this before you even consider getting a rabbit and perhaps then you will be able to make an informed choice as to whether a rabbit is right for you. And "please" as the above poster commented "IF YOUR RABBIT IS SICK, TAKE IT TO THE VET".......proud owner of a Black Havana, American Sable, Hotot and soon to be 2 Baby Lilacs..and just cosider this, the average spend on my 2 babies is £400 or $600 just for starters in the first year and this does not include food or unexpected vet please bear the long term cost in mind when making a decision....Scottish and proud :)

I don't want it to get sick and I am really worried because I really love animals and it would break my heart to have on fade in my arms. I know this hub is old but I need to know. I feel like it needs specail care. I love them so much I already have a tear in my eye just from thinking about it. Any rehabillitation centers in northern N.J.

I have had rabbits my whole life and I used to feed my rabbit lettuce and potatoes and some of the other things you say not to give her and she only had the hay that she slept on but she lived a long time. I try to give my new rabbit just what is said to be safe but I was reading about her pellets and people where saying not to give her lots but they are her favourite thing and she is in perfect health and has loads of energy. I think people can be over cautious with rabbits some times. rabbits eat what they can get in the wild and they seem to be doing rather well.

Momma Bunny 4 years ago

Our bunny LOVES romaine lettuce--he prefers that to the timothy pellets. So far so good, he seems just fine. He likes the occasional carrot, unpeeled. Other than the yummy little seeds in the Kaytee Fiesta food, he won't eat any of it--he just tosses it out of the food bowl and digs for the treats. We do feed him Timothy hay, so hopefully he's getting his nutrients. But he loves Romaine lettuce, I can't imagine not giving it to him now. I think he's telling me he doesn't love processed pellets. Smart rabbit maybe.

I think this topic requires some common sense, and some testing, to see what the bunnies like and how they react to different foods. Of course, I have no vested interest in any pet food company, I'm just trying to take care of our rabbit.

stephanie are you kidding? GO TO THE VET. if you were having problems with your digestive system would you like someone to just ask around on blogs or take you to the doctor???

krusty12, if you're twelve, better learn to spell first before getting a bunny. they're NOT some toy you can buy. they're living beings who need care, attention and responsibility.

everyone who plans to buy a bunny or any other pet:


inform yourselves about whether they'd be good pets for you, if you have time to spend with them and to care for them, if you have the conditions to keep it, if you know WHAT TO FEED HIM, how to clean his cage, how to socialize him, what diseases are they prone to, etc.

PLEASE stop buying pets just because you think it's cool or cute. do you think a dying bunny is cute? yeah, neither do I.

oh, also, romaine lettuce is fine for the bunny. just a leaf will do him good if he's constipated. not more.

banana constipates him if it's too much, apples give him diarrhea if it's too much. the lesson should be: do not exaggerate with the fresh fruit and vegetables, and your bunny will be healthy and happy.

Most of you should not own rabbits. Bunnies having serious medical conditions need to be seen by a vet. Take care of your buns and never let house buns into the wild! If you can't care for a bun find a no kill shelter. I hate people treating these beautiful and awesome (and full of personality and attitude) like fuggin toys. Oh yeah and parents STOP BUYING BUNNIES FOR YOUR KIDS unless you are ready to take on the responsibility where your kids WILL FAIL. There is a special cage in hell for you bunny abusers. I really do love my buns and they are FAMILY...That is how it should be. OH yeah GET THEM FIXED so there are not so many out there suffering and dying...

Any idiot can blog. I feel so bad for people asking questions and getting wrong information. Why do people feel the need to respond about things they dont know anything about. THIS AUTHOR IS AN IDIOT!! I have had rabbits all of my life AND I have rescued and saved baby rabbits AND my home is surrounded by a wildlife refuge. Half the things on the authors list are fine for rabbits to eat!!! The key is variety just like people to get all of their nutrition. Make sure you have a healthy pellet food and some hay then supplement with fresh fruits and veggies. The biggest risk of lettuce is that its all water and no nutritional value...many rabbits have starved with owners that didnt educate themselves and thought a lettuce only diet was ok. If lettuce was poison....half the forist would be extinct because they attack my garden every summer....for the carrotts, lettuce, apples, cucumbers, name it. Dont forget plety of fresh water.

Hi. I have been researching stuff and I am getting different reasons. People are saying alfalfa is bad for bunnies is bad, some say its good. Which?

Egobunny 4 years ago

jazzy, bunnies are social animals and need some interaction, you need to spend some time with her and let her get to know you, lots of love and gentle strokes, if your giving her lots of hay it will be hard to see how much of it she's eating and as your not watching her 24 hours a day she's probably eating when your not watching, rabbits prefer hay and don't need pellets, just hay, grass and a small amount of veg like carrot, apple or celery (never salad vegetables, they could kill her) if she's doing lots of poo then her digestive system is ok, if not pooing it could mean her digestive system is blocked and a trip to vet is necessary, rabbits have very sensitive digestive systems so any change in their eating habits need addressing, but as she's only been with you for a week she's probably a bit scared, which means getting her to trust you and realise she's safe with you, so get her some chew toys, they love applewood, and make special time with her every day, cause if she hasn't got another bunny friend to play with she could get lonely otherwise.

My rabbit LOVES celery, is that okay to feed her? And terrie alot of rabbits are mean and aggresive. I'm lucky enough to have a nice rabbit that deals with my 6 year old brother extremely well. My rabbit was found outside in front of a vet's office about 5 days ago and i have been researching the proper way to keep her cage and feed her.

I have noticed my daughters 8 month bunny is chewing in his metal cage. He has toys in his cage to chew but dosnt use them. He has also started something else new. In the morning I give him a bowel with apples,carrots, and some other snack. The last few mornings i couldn't even get my hand in the cage to get the bowl. He head butts me and then today he even took a bite at me? Should I not feel him the same time everyday?

Lionhead bunny 4 years ago

Hi, I have a lionhead bunny rabbit and im not to completely syre wats good or bad to feed her..i once tried a green apple, of course I cut it into bits and took the seeds out but she didn't really like the apple, so I tried a tomato, same way, cut it and take the seeds out..she loved the tomato. Ive been reading, so, is spinach bad for her? What about strawberries? Different types of berries?

I should add, they were 8 weeks when we got them, now 14 weeks. Have pretty much doubled in size, but definitely not fat. They have permanent access to fresh hay. We handle them every day, and their 'poos' are totally normal, all done in one corner of their run (we bought them a chicken coop, to ensure they'd have enough space!) I've just been googling again, and really don't get the lettuce thing. They get a huge mix, like the lettuce (sort of mesclun mix), and it has no impact whatsoever on their behaviour, poos or growth. Oh, they also don't like celery, which I gather can be a bit poisonous? They like the occasional strawberry. We grow lots of stuff in our garden, and happy to let them choose. The also LOVE young grape leaves!

cat 4 years ago

I recently got 2 Flemish Giants for my daughters. They are bright, friendly and happy. I give them lettuce every day, along with all sorts of veges (I've discovered they don't like carrots, that was a surprise!) They particularly like parsley, mint and oregano. They like capsicums, but not spring onions. I fill up their pellet bowl whenever they empty it. I don't get the lettuce thing. They run around the garden, and eat whatever they fancy. I know there are poisonous plants such as tomato and potato leaves, but other than that, can't we just trust them to choose what they want?

Bunnycommonsense 4 years ago

It is extremely difficult to take the opinions of an "expert" writing online when they cannot even keep their stories straight from article to article that they write. For someone who seems so militant in blaming others for poor care of their rabbits, it seems to me a bit of common sense should be used by Mrs/Mr Bunniez as their articles are full of contradictions and honestly misinformation. I urge everyone on these boards to use common sense and not to take the word of Bunniez as gospel as they cannot even keep their word straight from page to page. Do research in other places, that can give works cited, check books out of your local library, find someone who has raised rabbits for years to let you know what has worked for them. Look at what wild rabbits eat, and how they behave, it gives a good idea of what tame rabbits can eat as well.

Mizuki 4 years ago

Hello there~

I would like to answer some common questions I have been reading about,

1.How do i potty train my rabbit?

Well,you (with something to cover your hand)pick up its droppings and put it were you would like it to use the bathroom.

2.i just got a rabbit.My rabbit seems scared of me what do I do?

Well,give it some time,

what if you were just sent to somewhere you've never been never seen? you would be scared.

so,just give the poor thing some time.

3.My rabbit is sick,what do i do to make him/her better.

To me this is just stupid to ask.Why would you wait to get him/her better?Even if your just check to make sure he/she is not sick,GO TO THE FREAKING VET.its better to be safe that Hey,my rabbits okay,then,OMG I THINK MY RABBITS DYING.

4.What should i feed my rabbit?

Isn't that in the aticle above theese comments?

Well,feed it Carrot TOPS and timothy hay and rabbit pellets.that's my recommondation

Please don't be mad at me if i got some stuff wrong,

i don't own a rabbit i have been researching them ^u^

so that i can get one

Good care & good diet will prolong your bunn's happy life. Do NOT feed alfalfa pellets; there is too much protein; your bunns will get FAT! Alfalfa pellets r used 4 COMMERCIAL rabbits, 2 fatten them quickly 4 slaughter, like most other mass produced commercial animals(for food); also, most, if not ALL alfalfa products r Genetically Modified (GMO), so may cause additional problems, not recognized prior to GMO alfalfa. Additionally, OAT HAY should be available AT ALL TIMES. Alfalfa hay, again, is NOT what bunns needs!

Carrots, apples, bananas & most fruit have TOO MUCH SUGAR, & can cause serious problems 4 bunns, as well as most, if not ALL cruciferous veggies; see list here:

An EXCELLENT book 4 those considering or already housing a rabbit is: "RABBITS FOR DUMMIES" see here:

Also, check the House Rabbit Society at:

(by the way, rabbits R NOT rodents, they R of the family 'Leporidae' of the order 'Lagomorpha', thereby, they have different requirements from rodents.

Rabbits CAN be house trained (litter box), can be 'trained' to play fetch (they love 2 push/toss things around w/their noses/mouths), will come when called, and greet you when you get up in the morning and/or come home in the evening.

The more time you spend w/your bunns, the friendlier s/he will become. Have your rabbit SPAYed or NEUTERed. That will also help w/house training, temperament and long term health.

Bunns should also ALWAYS have something 2 chew on; some type of 'SAFE, NONTOXIC' toy, tree branches, UNtreated 2X4 or redwood fence. SOMETHING 2 keep their TEETH filed down. Rabbits' teeth NEVER stop growing. They can over-grow preventing bunns from eating, causing starvation.

If your rabbit EVER displays ANY behavior that is UNUSUAL or if bunns appears ill, take her/him 2 the vet IMMEDIATELY! Bunnies R VERY SENSITIVE! & NEVER TRUST YOUR DOG W/BUNNS~ Dogs CAN AND WILL kill bunns; either by physical contact, or bunns can literally be SCARED TO DEATH causing bunns 2 have a HEART ATTACK.

LOVE YOUR BUNNS! Take GOOD care of him/her. S/HE will LOVE YOU BACK~

My rabbit was 8 1/2 years old when she died. She found a quiet spot in the back of a closet she never visited before, lay down & died. Cause unknown, no obvious trauma. Either she ate TOO MUCH CAT FOOD (on the sly~RABBITS ARE NOCTURNAL~most active at dawn and dusk and throughout the night) or that 1/2 AVOCADO pit she ate was toxic to her, as they are 2 dogs & cats.

Happy Hopping!

Funny you say "but you wouldn't eat a product that only contained small amounts of arsenic would you?..."

Rice contains arsenic. Everytime you eat rice or rice pudding, or anything containing rice or rice flour you are consuming small amounts of arsenic.

My 18 week old holland lop eared bunny was in my bedroom and when I was cleaning her cage she ate a little bit of an aero chocolate bar! I read online that chocolate can be REALLY bad for bunnies, but i don't know if it's a big deal sense it was a little bit. She doesn't seem weird yet, she's lying in her cage like always. Is the little bit of chocolate a bad thing? HELP!

I have a 6 month old dwarf rabbit that I had for a week, and whoever wrote this is a liar. I feed my rabbit a handful of romaine lettuce every other day since I've had her(2 months) and she hasn't gotten sick, she is energic, she poops just fine. If you want a real list of healthy foods and bad foods maybe you should visit the humane societies site instead of someones blog. Btw I am a vet assistant I work for the ASPCA in new jersey, and I am telling all of you a handful of romaine lettuce 3 times a week won't harm your rabbit!!!!!!

Islandstyle671 5 years ago

I just wanted to make things clear, If lettuce is bad for rabbits then why do wild rabbits eat them? Plus I have a friend that breeds rabbits for a living and lettuce is what he gives as treats at least twice a day and his rabbits are healthy. Not to mention that half his back yard is a farm (lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, string beans, etc...) and every time i go to his house I help him catch the rabbits cause they over took the back yard. So PLEASE tell me is are you sure about the lettuce? cause I have seen first hand that lettuce is part of the rabbits health. all the rabbits are in healthy condition.

rebroz 5 years ago

if you haven't done your research BEFORE buying a rabbit on what to feed, homing and care then you should not have a rabbit. They require lots of attention and are high maintenance. If you are not ready to put in the time needed for researching them then you shouldn't have one. All of your questions should be directed to a VETERINARIAN as most of the questions on here should be asked before buying a bunny. P.S if the animal looks/acts sluggishly take it to a VET.

Hi. How much do bunnies, their cage, feed and stuff like that cost? I really want a bunny for my birthday which is less then two months away and Im turning eleven, although I'm not sure that my mom will say yes. How can I pursuade her to say yes? She thinks bunnies are smelly but they aren't if you take care of them. The thing is, my mom works at home and when I come back from school, we go to her work place and don't come back home until six or five hours later. Is it OK to leave a bunny for that long? I still have time to stay home for an hour or half and hour to spend with the bunny. Please help!

My son has a Blue Bevern rabbit. Recently the rabbits feet, hind end and tail have developed a brown color to them. It's obviously a stain, because the fur is normal down to the root. We've tried some rabbit cleaning supplies, washed out the cage (which turned out not to be dirty at all), and even tried vinegar to wash his paws. Nothing works. He is supposed to show him in the county fair in a few weeks, but I don't think it will happen if we can't figure this out. Any ideas????

The Guy Who Knows... 5 years ago

Hey - I've seen a couple mentions here of rabbits with swollen gooey eyes. This is a clear and prominent symptom of biological warfare; specifically, Miximatosis. As far as I'm aware, there is no cure or antibiotic; the merciful thing to do is kill your Rabbit, or to watch it very very closely and hope for the best. However I cannot stress enough-

This Virus is manmade.

To kill a Rabbit infected with this virus is NOT a sad affair- you are commiting a MERCY for your animal; it probably cannot hear you, cannot see you, cannot smell, and can barely feel you. It's not a nice condition; and since the virus that is killing it slowly was made by man, why don't you kill it quickly, and show that mankind isn't entirely bad.


Don't feed them Geraniums.

These too are poisonous.

Elaine 5 years ago

Lucy, your rabbit needs timothy hay. If it is less than 6 months old, your rabbit needs both timothy hay and alfalfa. They need the fiber to help their poos firm up. Hay should be the MAIN part of their diet. If the poo is watery, essentially diarrhea, however, your bun will need to see a vet ASAP because diarrhea is serious and leads to death in a lot of buns. Good luck!

my rabbit is a black rex and i was wondering why he sometimes has sloppy poo stuck to his bum?

i have gave him a lot of cardboard recently to naw on because i've heard people say to give it them to help there theeth.

I got a cotten bud and wet it with warm water and salt,the poo was removed and it was clean.

I'm not sure what could be wrong with him? it might be nomal but im not sure?

i feed my rabbit WAGG BUNNY BRUNCH. he loves it,i don't normall give him vegtables or fruit,but sometimes i get him grass,carrots or cabbage for him for a treat but i do wash it first.

Also how much grams of food should i give my rabbit to keep him on a healty diet?

i get him out 4 times a day,he lives in the house in a cage,he's a house rabbit,so i'm sure he cant catch anything like,fly eggs or mites or anything like that?

he has a litter tray which he use's a dog bed(which he loves)+a hay trough and a food trough he also has a large water bottle which i change every week,+i change he litter and clean his bed every week too.

i also have a lead for him and sometimes take him outside for some exercise.+we let im in the back garedn for a run also.

House Rabbit Society is an EXCELLENT website to use as a resource. Research is KEY to having happy, healthy pets. If you look on the Internet, you will find CRAZY advice! Try and stick to verifiable sources and organizations. Breeders and other individuals that claim to be experts, are not always the best sources of information. Strong opinions do not always equal accurate facts!

bubba ganoush is his name 5 years ago

Ok so I've been reading these comments about people with sick bunnies. They have vets for a reason. How about you call the vet and ask them instead of making someone online.

And for those who don't know how to take care of their rabbit do some research! Buy a book on rabbits, talk to vets, and google is a wonderful place.

Tell you what. If you all send an email to, I will be happy to answer your rabbit questions, one at a time. I am a long-term rabbit breeder in Pennsylvania and will probably know. If I don't know, I will gladly look it up for you. Please just give the article writer a break!

Btw, lettuce IS poisonous to rabbits because it causes diarrhea. The effect can be cumulative, so avoid feeding altogether. The people who have been feeding it long-term, expect your bunnies to die any day. SO is soy. Grapes, although toxic to dogs, are fine for rabbits, in small quantities. Rabbits can FART, they just can't BURP(I can't believe I had to spell it out for you!) so gassy veggies are fine! Diarrhea is the enemy, some veggies will cause diarrhea, that's why you can't feed them to rabbits. Tomatoes are fine, just don't give them any leaves or stems or roots, just the fruit. Potatoes are too starchy and will make rabbits fat and anything green on a potato is toxic to you and bunny! Parsnips are fine, cabbage is fine, but the majority of your greens should be grass and weeds, provided you can positively(!) identify them.

Yesterday, my mom found a poor little rabbit! It's front paws got cut off by a hunter! We had to save it. We are gonna keep it until it's healed. After it's healed we are gonna let it go into the wilderness! How I wish that I can keep it as a pet.(By the way, I named it Wednesday.)

Mona 6 years ago

Hi, I am in South Korea with no experienced rabbit vet in sight. He is 6 months old, not fixed and had snuffles when he was younger, now no symptoms. We were over feeding pellets about 3 months ago which caused him to be very sick with diarrhea and dehydration. We nursed him back to health and now feed him a proper balanced diet of hay and 3 cups of 3 kinds of veggies per day. I give him a tiny amount of the pellets now in the morning as a treat, he loves it, but I am very careful since I now it could cause a problem. This morning he got a hold of the bag and ate more than what I usually give him, and I noticed about 2-3 hours later stool that was coated in blood...the stools were normal shaped and he is acting normal. Is this because of the pellets or something else?

;I let my friend take care of my rabbit for two weeks because i went on a vacation. Before that, my rabbit [ Butters] had normal small blackish pellet poop. After, when I came back...her poop was much bigger and very light brown, very Indifferent than before. Should I be concerned? Is it still normal? She fed it a lot of carrots too.

Rose. 6 years ago

I had a white haired, pink eyed rabbit that i found in my garden when she was 1 month old. No one claimed her in local paper, so i bought her a big hutch, she eventually had the back garden and a secure verandah with her hutch on it at night. If it got cold i would bring her in at night and even during the day if really cold or too hot. I fed her pellets, hay, mixed rabbit food, some greens that she liked eg., green part of dutch carrots, boc choy, a piece of apple or pair occasionally and some carrot. Now she is dead at 18 months old. She was bleeding at begining of week then it went away then it came back at end of week. I took her at end of week and vet said he could feel lumps in her stomach and thought they could be turmors. I regret not taking her early to the vet on the first day and not taking her in her first year for vet to check her over and get some good advice. Who would have thought that 2 months after my dad dying, my rabbit also would be dead which was a real comfort too me at that time.

My rabbit's poop is is green and sometimes not the right round pellet shape, and today his pee looks slightly red.

He's had watermelon rines, and MAYBE cauliflower [my dad is always trying to give our bunnies the scraps]. Do you know if anythings wrong with my bunny?

Ok, whoever is writing that lettuce is bad for yo bunny, you seriously need to update ur info like Christine said. i just talked to my 4-H leader who has had rabbits since she was 3 and now she is in her 5o's. she told me that she ALWAYS feeds her buns lettuce. i understand that it can affect SOME buns but u need to include in ur info that it only affects some buns. it's like one of those medication commercials that says there is like a .3% chance that u can get this life threatning disease as result as symptoms for taking this medication. oh, and by the way, it read all the info on this page about how u shouldn't feed ur buns lettuce and based half of my report i need to complete for 4-H on dangerous foods and diet... GGGGGRRRRRR!!! thanks a lot! >:^( (this is my very angry face)

Christine 6 years ago

None of you guys have any clue what you're talking about. Lettuce is NOT bad for your rabbits, ONLY iceberg. In fact, lettuce has tremendous nutritional value, including that such as romaine, green leaf, and red leaf.

To the author- please cite the source where you stated that lettuce "contains lactucarium, which can give your rabbit diarrhea so bad that it becomes fatal." Your source is most likely outdated and giving the public wrong information.

Edible lettuce, Lactuca sativa, does not even contain lactucarium although it does contain lactucin which is in lactucarium.

Look at you scaring all of these Elementary/Middle School kids who have a pet rabbit, even as this is FALSE information.

As for everyone else, just read, as it is the most updated and informational care site for rabbits on the web. will have EVERYTHING you need to know!

Hey, My bunny just recently started eating his own poo. I also noticed that his poo has gotten smaller. He did run out of food for 1 1/2 days and only had hay and his treats could this be the cause of it all? Of course now he has food but I'm also wondering if it might be because I got him different food? You know the ones that has the pellets and the vegetables. He never acted this way with the regular pellets. Is that the cause for everything?

Thanks for the help.

Bunnies can be very complicated. There are a variety of websites through google that can help greatly. I put them all together and chose what to feed my bunny. I will be getting another one soon and hopefully they can be pals.(they're both males)Other websites also help with introducing ways to join bunnies together wich Im going to try myself. Hay seems to be the best choice I found to feed them. Treats I give are dandelions straight from the yard. Bunny behaviors can vary. Ive noticed some are more timid and nice while others can be aggressive. Truly there is no exact way to stop them except for treating them like your own child. Eventually they'll change or they wont at all. Welcome to the ways of human beings. Always be mindful about what you feed them and what you let them do. Watch out for certain greens because some like iceberg lettuce can cause gas wich is hard for a bunny to pass. like your own gas cramps except you can get rid of it much easier. Rabbits come in all shapes and sizes as well as their personality, behavior, likes and dislikes. Don't get concered too much if somethings not happening right away and remain calm. Give it some time and you can figure out if you really need to take her to the vet or not. I hope this can help you all out. I don't know about potty training but ill be willing to give it a try. Thanks for reading my passage. If you have any more questions email me at thanks again

My bunny will not eat pellets anymore. It's probably my fault for giving her too many treats, but she will just take the bowl and flip the contents. I've thought about cutting out treats and just giving her pellets thinking she will eat them if she gets hungry enough, but will she? I don't want her to get sick from not eating.

And how long can you leave Timothy Hay in a cage? She's made a "bed" out of it and I hate to disturb her hard work! lol I do give her fresh hay daily.

i am confused i got a rabbit about a month ago... i did some research about how to care for and feed rabbits b4 i got her..and i read that rabbits should not b fed pellets after u take them home, that pellets r only for breeders for the short period that they will have them. Said i was supposed to switch to mostly vegetables and just a little bit of pellets. Well i did that and now my rabbit eats 2 large bowls a day of broccoli, romaine lettuce, celery, kale, carrots, and endive. But now i am reading on different sights that rabbits really shouldn't have that much vegetables and mostly pellets. She used to eat a lot of timothy hey b4 she started eating vegetables, but now she wont eat any of it or any of her alfalfa treats. She seems healthy and happy. She goes to the bathroom just fine, with the occasional diarrea. Someone please tell me what to do .. do i switch her back to mostly pellets again? or do i just leave her with the vegetables since she seems happier? thank you amanda

okay, i am not an expirenced pet owner with bunnies aneyway, but im having a bit of an issue. somebody on my block released 4 or more domesticated pet rabbits to roam freely and live on their own, at first not knowing much about them assumed that they would be able to survive like "jack rabbits" or wild bunnies. but when i came to notice that the rabbits numbers were dwindeling i became concerned. i love animals especially rabbits and i found this a form of cruelty seeing as everyone of these domesticated bunnies but one had succumb to the first freez we had in this area of florida. luckily one had survived but one of my neighbours dropped off on my porch to take in, she said discustingly cruel things that could do to this rabbit on the occasion i was not willing to take care of it. of corse i was going to i had no other choice my only problem was that im finantally burdened im only 15. so i looked up on the computer everything that i could possible need to know like diet and any health issues the rabbit might have and the only problem i found was a build up in his ear , i looked further into the matter to find out it is ear mites. so i went with my christmas money to petco and bought timothy hey some rabbit pellits and rabbit bedding as well as some of the treatement medications neccary for the mites and applied as directed and a water dish. he seems to be doing MUCH better than befor with the activity, he was not very mobile at all but now hes very "hoppy" im beginning to introduce carrot apple and celery to his diet as a treat daly. my only issue is im not allowed to make him my permenant pet. this means i need to find him a suitable home once im sure his ear problem is better. how do YOU think i should go about doing that? im told if i give him to the pet store they'll feed him to the snakes! screw that! noone in my faimily will be able to take him.. also i soaked the bunnys ear in luke warm baby oil non cented as directed by most sites i checked out and got some of the very loose crusties off without incident because i know from reasurch im NOT supposed to remove major amounts of it or ill cause discomfort. there is still some left in the ear canal i will continue to lichtly coat the ear in baby oil but will that crusties eventuallu come out on its own? please help me with this and if im in correct with ANY of this let me know ive never had a bunny befor and i wanto make sure the little guy is happy and i find him a good home

thanks, Tim

To all of you who still have questions in RE: to what rabbits can and can't eat go to the house of rabbit society webiste and it has all that info on there. Bunniez also has another hub what to feed your bunny rabbit-what do rabbits eat that one had more info on it plus i posted a few lists from the house of rabbit society on there. If you can't find something on either list then I wouldn't give it to them. Think of your rabbit as a child and food as medicine if your child found a pill on the ground outside an you didn't know what it was or what it would do to them would you give it to them.....please don't answer that! after some of the comments i've in reguards to what people are doing their rabbits i can't bear to think that some of you are also parents and what you do with them!

From the text of this article:

"Clover can cause gas, and rabbits have no means to expell the gas, which can mean bloat and death. ... Fresh foods such as ... broccoli can also be fed in small amounts as treats."

I'm surprised that you list broccoli as something that can be fed to a rabbit, right after you state that rabbits have no way of expelling gas! I have always told my husband NEVER to throw our bunny broccoli or cauliflower, as these are cruciferous vegetables that cause HUGE amounts of gas. (Haven't you ever noticed how much you burp after eating raw broccoli and cauliflower with dip on one of the hors d'ouevre platters?) My advice is DO NOT FEED BROOCOLI, CAULIFLOWER, CABBAGE, etc.

Jenny-rabbit 7 years ago

does she poop everywhere if so i would litterbox train her before trying to hold her a lot. Find a spot where she poops most often and put a box with her bedding in it if she poops somewhere else put the poop in the box and she'll get the idea. If she/he is litterbox trained and just poops on you then he/she is either scared or probably not nuetered/spayed and is marking you. If he/she is not spayed or nuetered then it just means that the rabbit really likes you and is marking you as theirs. Either way you should have your rabbit spayed or neutered to prevent cancer and to help with behaivor. please visit the Rabbit House Society they have great info

can some one tell me how to stop my rabbit from pooing or peeing on me, because it goes through the towl. would some pls explain to me

tigger 7 years ago

Ok ok you don't need to keep repeating stellana i suggest a lot of plants(vegatbles) for eg you can feed them parsley spinich not broccoli, cabbbage, parsnips, swedes, potato tops, and tomato leaves. never feed them lettuce because it gives them gas and the 1 problem about that is they can't pass gas. Any other food that would give a human gas do not give to the rabbit

They can eat Grass and / or hay

Pellets can also make up part of a rabbit's diet Fresh Vegetables and some fruit make a great addition to a rabbit's diet,

Veges that are okay for bunnies include:







There is some argument over leafy vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, spinach, and the like. Some say that they should never be fed to bunnies, others say that the darker leaf vegetables are okay in small amounts. But personaly spinach is ok for them another grat food is snow peas they just love it.

i know how you feel..i have a jumpy bunnie myself. When you r holding your rabbit,make sure to support the rump...that's a big problem for most rabbit owners. you should also spend more time with her and, if possible, get her spayed. i recommend you give her treats when she behaves. when you hold her, if she tries to scratches you, i would hold her paws together until she understands that you r the one in charge. i hope this works!

i think you really shoudn't be sticking your hand in her face(i'm not trying to be mean). i bet she is uncomfortable by the sudden dissapearance of her world. if she scratches you again, try making her more comfortable by petting her ears first, then slowly making your way down to her face.

Hope this helps!

Kuneho 7 years ago

I never fed my rabbit any lettuce of any kind.

There is ALWAYS fresh TIMOTHY hay in her litter box.

I feed her also about 1/4 to 1/3 pound of either KALE or COLLARD GREENS every day. Carrots on occasion. I spare a piece of apple or banana as an occasional treat. AND ONLY as a TREAT at every BEDTIME- a small handful of variety rabbit pellets (has the corn, sunflower seed etc.). A 32 once water bottle is freshened up and filled EVERYDAY with out fail. She has a very large 30X48 dog crate she calls 'home' where I built a second floor for her to jump on and relax. I put her travel carrier in there with the door removed - her toys are in there for her to play with in the mornings. Litter training was a cinch, and completely PERFECT after she was spayed. She has chewed VERY LITTLE after she was spayed, but I DID replace some lamp cords before then! She's a 95% perfect house bunny since she was spayed....She's a 5%'er when I'm too busy to pay attention to her. She will tease me and run under the bed where I'm not sure to trust her yet. Expect a $400 to $500 bill for spaying, about half as much to neuter the male, if you decide to do that. I cringed at it...but now I am so glad I did! Spaying reduces the ovarian cancer problem too. She may live longer. We love our bunny, she's a precious member of our family. Litter training was easy. keep the litter pan in her cage, or where-ever you wish it to be, keep putting the poops in it. bunny will eventually learn. Bunny might pick a certain place to go, and make it a little difficult for you to train her where you want her to put the litter box there. keep putting the pills in the box, gradually move the box to where you want it. I use wood stove pellets for the litter box, and change it EVERYDAY with 6-8 cups of wood stove pellets. Cheap, the pellets cost $5.50 a bag and last 2 weeks or more. The box is big enough for her to jump into and while she's there she eats the hay I put in there for her. The wood pellets are on one side of the box, the hay on the other. Good feeding, exercise, clean water and cage (home) - she has not asked me to take her to the vet since she was spayed.

I never punished my bunny in any way. I read everywhere that it doesn't work, so I always used positive things to teach our bunny. Every now and then I greet our bunny with little treats, a grape, rabbit pellets...etc... she is very warm to me. will just melt into my hands with I pet her.

This is SO IMPORTANT if you want your bunny to trust you-- Understand that by INSTINCT, your bunny fears being preyed upon. Your sudden moves towards her, your SHADOW will scare the heck out of her. It may take you days or weeks to recover the trust you might lose when you scare her by be careful that you DON'T! Always know where she is and not frighten her. Walk slowly around her, always remember she sees you as a GIANT! Few people know that a rabbit can DIE from fright alone, don't frighten her.

So please somebody reply. Thank you for taking your time to read my problem.

Shadow 9 7 years ago

Some people tell others to go to the vet and not to ask online. One reason people ask online could be because they don't have the money to go to the vet and pay for its health. Another reason could be to make sure that they don't wast time or money by going to the vet just to make sure it is ok, when they have the internet where you can find any information about bunnies or other stuff. going to the vet, Just to find out if it is ok, is a wast of time if your bunny really is ok. so that is why some people go to the internet before going to the vet, if neccesary. I just wanted to let some poeple know.

jen 7 years ago

According to my vet who has specialized in small animals for 17 years, mostly rabbits, romaine is fine to feed bunnies. I would have to say that my healthy 11 year old bun who eats romaine everyday is quite enough proof that it is okay to feed romaine to me. As for your comment about would you eat a food that contains only a small amount of arsenic, most sources of public drinking water contain traces of arsenic as well as does most commercially produced chicken (Tyson is one of the few that does not btw). So, yes most of the people for whom you are writing do consume arsenic regularly.

PR Fan, if you can get the other rabbit, do it. The were a bonded pair and rabbits have social needs. It would be good for his mental/emotional well being. Plus watching a pair interact is fun; they groom each other, play, lay around like lazies, etc.. If they're male and female be sure they're fixed so you don't have babies. If left by himself, I can't tell you how he'll be. He could get over it in time or be depressed.

To get him to like you, first thing is be patient. You JUST got him, he's confused by new surroundings, traumatized from being transported, alone without his buddy, so of course he's going to be aloof. Give him peace and time to explore your place (bunny-proof where he shouldn't go) Get down on the floor to his level so you're not a scary lumbering giant. Talk in a calm voice to him. Let him sniff you and know your scent. If he lets you, pet his forehead; most rabbits like that. When he gets more comfortable with you, touch him more, try scratching his cheeks and petting his back. Offer his treats or veggies from your hand so he associates you with positive things. Most of all just give him time to settle in and get to know you. Don't hover over him all the time and perhaps he'll end up seeking you out for company, especially if you're on the floor. Good luck!

Folks, if you have questions, search for a rabbit forum or messageboard and post them there. You'll get good answers from experienced owners. :)

Hayley I'd recommend that you don't feed wildlife. They do fine on their own. Feeding could result in loss of fear of humans, which can be really bad if the animal approaches the wrong human.

Be sure there isn't harmful pesticide in the yard so the rabbit doesn't ingest when it grazes

Sophie, about "potty" training your rabbit...

With my rabbit, i just kept her in the cage until she was "used" to going in the corner of her cage and then gradually increased the amount of freedom she had out of her cage ( space and time). If she ever went outside of her cage, she was immediately placed back in her cage and locked in for a little while. This is to re-enforces the concept that the cage is where she is meant to go, not as punishment, as rabbits do not really understand that concept.

If she is marking all over the house, reduced the amount of space your rabbit has to roam, and pay close attention to where she might be marking. Bunnies are creatures of habbit, they will go in the same place just because it's what they have always done. so to litter train, find where your rabbit is going now, and try putting some newspaper down,( it will probably get chewed...) but keep at it. Then as soon as she is used to the paper, but a litter box lined with paper on top. The best boxes are those that are very easy to get in and out of, so they won't be intimidating for the bunny. Rabbits tend to pee ect.. while they eat, so putting a little bit of leafy greens in the box will help. (although make sure it doesn't get soiled). Eventually you will have a litter trained rabbit. Most importantly, consistency is key to training any animal, so be sure to keep it up daily.

Yah, you can definatly feed your rabbit lettuce ( romain, green, red ect..) and spinach ect... Just not iceburg because it's mostly water, and it wont KILL it, it would be like if all you ate was celery.

Also, despite my efforts, my rabbit has gotten into chocolate, nuts, wires, paper, carpet, toilet paper, garbage, jalapeno chips, popcor + butter and a ham sandwich ( although the meat was left) and is still as healthy as can be, not that i condone it, but even in the wild they eat some terrible things...

Seriously people, before you get a rabbit ( or any pet) research it using REAL books by REAL vets ect.. not some slosh off of the internet, as helpful as it can be, sometimes, this just proves it.. don't feed your rabbit lettuce? you can't be serious? everyone has different opinions on EVERYTHING, it seems.

So I was running low on food so i went to walmart and bought some called Wild Harvest Super Premium Rabbit Blend Pet Food, It sounded good but my bunny doesn't eat it. but she loves the other food it came with. So my question here is does she need to get use to it or trained to eat it?

2nd Question: DOes a bunny need to be trainied to wear a leash, cause I tried it and she began flippin around, what's the best approach?

3rd Question: The best way to train a bunny to poo and pee in her cage and on the floor, without a litter?

Relax research rabbit food on google or just go to the pet store get timothy hay, rabbit food pelets, carrot tops, romaine lettuce, something for it to chew on, a box for it to hide in ...


most bunnies will be scared at first until it gets to know you and its surroundings. just talk to it or leave it in a quite space for a while

the worst thing you can do is chase it around until you can pick it up

let it get used to its surroundings for at least a few days

Are cucumbers a safe food for adult rabbits? I haven't found an exhaustive list.

Is it necessary to peel or slice the cucumbers? Should they be given only as treats? Thanks.

kirial 7 years ago

don't be decieved by bunny's fur coat, cold can be harmful or even fatal to them. If it is 0 degrees Celcious then you will need to make sure the cage is sheltered from the wind, rain, snow, and ice and if you have more than one rabbit in separate cages I'd suggest getting a heater to keep the temperature closer to 10-15 C (50-60 F) or letting them huddle together if they all get along.

If you mean 0 Farneheight, then your bunny would probably be best off moving inside for the winter or until the temperates head up to at least 30-40 F. Or, once again, get him a covered shelter with indirect heating (central or ambiant heat not a box-heater pointed at him)

When you use a heater for your rabbits ensure that the hot air has a way to escape and the colder fresh air can get in or your bunny could suffer a lack of oxygen over time and die. I also suggest consulting a professional and double checking the best way to do this, as well as verifying any advice you read online. You don't have to be a vet to post a "professional opinion." And being a breeder or owner doesn't necessarily mean you know everything or even close.

hello, i need your help please! i just got two baby bunnies that are only 4-weeks old because i didn't know that 4 weeks is too young for rabbits to be raised. since we got them yesterday, they haven't been eating their pellets. so for one whole day, they weren't able to eat. however, they're eating a lot of the grass we have from our lawn so we fed them grass the whole day. but they're NOT POOPING AT ALL!! why is this??? i'm so worried!!! please please help me. they are acting completely normal (at least based on my knowled) since they're not lethargic and they like to jump around.

My rabbit has been living in the same cage since it was a week old. Now it's three months old and it is 10 or eleven inches outstretched. Should I change the cage...?

i got my rabbits two years ago. since then, I've read books and magazines and spoke with a couple of veternarians to make sure I was giving them the best care possible. I've been feeding them rommaine lettuce every day since the day I got them and they are both perfectly healthy. It all depends on your rabbit.

Also, in response to eliz's comment, those "poops" are called cecotropes. The rabbits digestive system is unlike many other animals. Since they are herbivores they have a very large cecum. Food material must got through their digestive systems twice in order for the rabbits to get all the nutrients. The food goes through once, comes out as a cecotrope, is ingested again, and then comes out as hard round feces. Cecotropes are 100% normal. Most of the time rabbit owners never see them because the rabbit eats them as they are coming out (usually at night). when they leave the cecotropes and do not ingest them, it usually means the don't have enough fiber in their diet. make sure they get enough hay and they will be fine.

It is such a lie to say you cant feed your bunny lettuce. romain lettuce does fine with a bunny as long as its in small doses every once and a while. it isn't anything to worry about.

My two rabbits poop diarrhea looking pellets sometims. Well, I assume its diarrhea coz its not like the normal small poop pellets. Its like small little poop pellets all stuck together. They smell really bad. And they are a bit moisty. If I don't clean it up right away, it will stick to the floor, or whatever it is on.

I've asked the vet, and they said its nothing to worry about. But I don't think its normal! :(

They poop normal though. They poop the unusual one, sometimes.

Please help.

Bunnyluvr, seriously, take your rabbit to the vet. Why would you even waste time online when your rabbit is obviously sick?

As for you Reese, it depends how much she gave it. Your rabbit may or may not be sick. If it looks ill, take it to the vet, otherwise be more careful in the future :)

Bob, go to the profile page. At the bottom right you will see an article about what you can feed your rabbit. Also, google is your friend. Sometimes questions can be answered here, but this is not a free bunny advice service. If you are getting a rabbit you should be prepared to do the research yourself, look things up in search engines, go to your library, and ask questions of the breeder you are getting the rabbit from. If your cat kills animals I would keep it away from your bunny.

Monique, your rabbit poops in her cage because this is her bathroom. That is where she has chosen to go. It is a very good thing that she goes there and does not go all around your house, yes? I'm not entirely sure why you are asking for help on this issue, as it sounds like you have a perfectly well trained house bunny who won't make a mess on the carpet. What were you expecting her to do, exactly? Bunnies do poop a lot, that means that she is healthy and happy. You don't have a problem, she is behaving very well.

Im back again to tell you not to feed your bunny letuce, cabbage, parsnips, swedes, potato tops, tomao leaves, clover, foxglove, honeysuckle, iris, hemlock, poppies, ivy, buttercups, deadly nightshade, snowdrops, and even grass around clovers! Thank you for reading this, i hope i helped you.

DeAnna 8 years ago

Im 12 and i have a bunny. I gave it some grass in our yard and some leaves on our tree. And it is just fine. if you want to know about some stuff to feed you bunny try some grass and leaves and even some rabbit food that you can buy at the store, or pet store.

That sounds fine :) The only time you should really be worried is if he stops pooping, or if he is looking sick or listless in other ways in addition to the extra pooping.
