Any suggestions for fruits/veggies for bunnies?


I have a rabbit, Chestnut who has recently been bullied by my other rabbits. I believe the other rabbits haven't been sharing their food, and Chestnut is loosing weight. Do you have any recommendations for yummy, and healthy rabbit veggies and/or fruits to get her back to health?

Thank you so much!

Hi, beaglepug02. We're sorry to hear Chestnut is being bullied. Have you tried separating them when you serve them food? This may help ensure Chestnut's eating. You can find information on a rabbit diet and nutrition here in the Petco Community: https://goo.gl/C7jqXA. There are more great tips on caring for your bunny here on our care sheet: https://goo.gl/Sh78Pk. We hope this helps. We would love to see a picture of your bunny. Let us know how it goes!

I have separated Chestnut completely. She seems to be eating her food now. I gave her a little banana yesterday and I think she liked it.
Thank you for the suggestions!

My sweet little 6 year old lop loves fresh spinach with spring mix lettuce. I buy the bagged stuff for people salads. Hoppy will only eat shoestring cut carrots. He likes the pet treats too. Favorites are dehydrated bananas, strawberries, apples and papaya. He also likes loose or compacted timothy hay. I have heard adult rabbits shouldn't have alfalfa but he gets it occasionally. He also likes pet treats like timothy biscuits and more that he likes then doesn't and then does. Hoppy has been a picky eater at times but usually likes the variety.
