Can Rabbits eat blueberries?
Fresh, sweet, crisp, juicy blueberries. Mmmmmm…delicious aren’t they? But can rabbits eat blueberries?
A couple of blueberries or a small helping of some other fruits can make a nice little treat or reward for your bunnies every once in awhile. But, as is the case with fruits, you need to keep in mind that blueberries are chalked full of sugar. And if there is one thing that can cause digestive problems for your rabbit, it’s eating too much sugar. This is why it’s important to think of blueberries and other fruits as treats. It’s fine to feed a small slice/serving now and again, but just remember that the main thing your bunny needs from you is fiber from fresh hay as well as fresh water. Reasonable amounts of veggies and the occasional fruit as treat can round out a healthy rabbit diet.
So, can rabbits eat blueberries? Yes, just be sure to feed them sparingly and make sure they are getting everything else they need in their diet.
We hope this helps, and of course, it goes without saying that if you ever have any serious questions about the health of your rabbit it is always best to consult with your veterinarian.
Thanks for stopping by, and we hope we’ll see you around again real soon.
Until next time, love those bunnies!
