Poisonings

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.

Poisonings

Rabbits love to explore with their mouths, but this does makes them particularly susceptible to poisonings. Signs vary considerably, but include coughing, seizures, diarrhoea, lack of co-ordination, depression or excitability. If you suspect your rabbit has been poisoned, collect a sample of the suspected foliage and take your pet straight to the vet.
