Can I feed sunflower seeds to my rabbit?

 

 

 It’s a ton of fun owning a rabbit, but there are plenty of questions that come up when it comes to feeding them.  And one of the more common questions is can rabbits eat sunflower seeds?

The answer is yes, rabbits can eat sunflower seeds.  However, if you feed sunflower seeds you need to be sure of a few things:

 

They need to be hulled (that means removing the shell) as they are unable to properly digest the shells.

 

The must be fed in moderation, consider them a treat.

 

And of course always remember the most important thing you can do for your bunny is to make sure that high quality and fresh timothy hay are always available.  Additionally make sure to have fresh clean water and pellets available on a daily basis.  Fresh veggies fed in moderation and the occasional fruit as a treat is used by many rabbit owners to fill out the rest of the diet with a little variety, just make sure to feed these items in moderation.

Can I feed my rabbit radishes?

Ahhhhh fresh crisp radishes…a healthy and tasty veggie for us humans especially in our salads.  But can rabbits eat radishes?

 

The short answer is yes, rabbits can eat radishes, although many rabbits might prefer other veggies over radishes.  The thing with radishes is if you do feed them you need to be careful not to feed too much.  Too much radish can cause excess bloat and gas in your bunny, which can actually lead to a pretty serious problem.  With all vegetables its important to remember to feed in moderation.  And always remember, the most important things you should feed your bunny are going to be fresh and high quality

timothy hay, fresh and clean water, and quality rabbit pellets.

 

So, can rabbits eat radishes?  Yes, but if you do feed them just make sure not to overfeed them, just a small amount is fine.

Can rabbits eat kale?

 

Can I feed my Rabbit kale?

 

Many of us humans love some fresh and crisp kale, a great vegetable with a lots of nutrients.  But can rabbits eat kale?

 

Well, the short answer is yes.  Rabbits can eat kale and they can eat an enormous amount of other things as well.  However, perhaps what we should be asking is should rabbits eat kale or not.  The answer to that question is a bit more complicated.

 

Kale is an okay snack to give to your rabbit every once in awhile, however its important to remember to feed kale or any other vegetable  in moderation.  These should be a supplement, not a substitute, to the core of your rabbits diet.  The core of your rabbits diet needs to be fresh and high quality timothy hay, fresh and clean water, as well as quality rabbit pellets.  You can feed a little bit of kale or other fresh vegetables in addition to this to add a little variety and healthy snack to the rabbits diet, but again it should never take the place of the core of the diet.  One thing to understand about kale specifically is that if too much is fed, it can cause gas or digestive issues in your rabbit.  Also, kale is high in calcium, and excess calcium can lead to other problems as well.

 

Can rabbits eat kale?  yes, but just make sure to feed in moderation and make sure that the core of their diet is being totally satisfied as a priority.
