Rabbits are herbivores which means they need a strict, plant-based diet. They should not be given foods that were made for humans or other animals. They have a fragile digestive system which needs a lot of course fiber. In fact, most of a rabbit’s daily food should consist of hay and dried grasses so that his gut muscles stay strong and continue to process food correctly.
Greens (vegetables) should make up 10 to 15% of a rabbit’s daily diet. Rabbits can also be fed fresh grasses, but it must be free of chemicals and pesticides. Grass that has been cut needs to be fed immediately because it begins to rot immediately.
