7.How to feed pet rabbits

The daily feeding of pet rabbits includes grass (hay), vegetables, rabbit grain, fruits, etc. Generally, 80% of the food is mainly hay, which is replaced every day. Hay provides a large amount of crude fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals for pet rabbits, making it their main source of nutrition. Fresh vegetables and fruits contain the trace elements required by pet rabbits, and rabbit pellet food can provide full nutrition.

Rabbits have multiple meals and can be fed multiple times a day, so they should be fed in small amounts with multiple meals. The daily feed amount is 4% to 5% of the rabbit’s body weight. Try to feed early in the morning, eat well at noon, eat well at night, and add more grass at night. The scientific feeding method is to feed rabbits with regular and quantitative feed every day, provide unlimited hay supply 24 hours a day, and appropriately supplement some fresh vegetables and fruits.

8.Requirements for pet rabbits to drink water

Drinking water should be given indefinitely and in an unlimited amount, and there should be a dedicated drinking water bottle for rabbits. Rabbits will not lower their heads and lick water like dogs, which will cause them to choke their noses. Rabbits must drink boiled cold boiled water or pure water. It is not recommended to drink mineral water or raw water.
