Fresh Water

Did you know

At least 85-90% of the rabbit’s diet should consist of hay, grass and dried grass, as a guideline as much as the size of the rabbit’s body! They also need a small amount of nuggets – 20-25g per kg ideal bodyweight is all that is needed. You also need to make sure they have some green leafy salad as part of their diet and water should always be made available.

Fresh Water

A plentiful supply of fresh, clean water must always be available. 

Rabbits have a high water intake of water due to a high fibre diet, so a rabbit weighing on average 2kg will be drinking as much a 5kg dog! It is best to provide water in a bowl as opposed to a water bottle wherever possible, as rabbits tend to drink more from a bowl. 

Change water daily in warm weather and make sure it hasn’t frozen or close to during the winter season.
