Foods hi-lighted in blue are the ones our bunnies are used to. Feed no more than the size of your thumb. Feed no more that 1-2 times per week. Be very careful when feeding young rabbits. Too much can be harmful. Our babies are started on fresh foods while still on mom's milk so they are used to them. When introducing a new food, give them the size of your thumbnail, and only 1 new food per week. Check bunny for messy bottoms. If you see runny poop/messy bottoms, stop all fresh foods and give a quality grass hay, no alfalfa for a day or so until stool is normal. Remember these are treats. Their hay and pellets are the most important. Of everything listed, Pineapple is most helpful because its enzymes help prevent wool block from the hair the bunny swallows when grooming itself. The pineapple must be fresh as the heat from canning destroys the enzymes. Fresh water MUST be provided daily. If the bunny has no water, or if it is dirty, he will not eat.
