Can guinea pigs eat grapefruit?

 

Alot of guinea pig owners are curious about fruit they can feed their guinea pig, and one question that many ask is can guinea pigs eat grapefruit or not.  The main thing to understand about fruits such as grapefruit is that they are high in sugar.  And if theres one thing that can upset your piggies stomach and cause digestive problems, its too much sugar.  So, if you do decide to feed any fruits, just make sure you do so sparingly.  On the other hand, the things that your guinea pig needs most in his diet is fresh timothy hay, fresh and clean water, and quality guinea pig pellets fortified with vitamin c.   Do these right and you’ll be on your way to a happy and healthy guinea pig.

 

So, can guinea pigs eat grapefruit?  Yes they can, but if you feed it be sure to do so sparingly.

 

See you next time…and of course…love those piggies!

Although some will claim that they’ve been able to feed popcorn to rabbits, the fact is that popcorn really doesn’t provide any nutritional benefit to the animal, and can only have the negative effect of potentially causing digestive and potential health problems in the short term, as well as unnecessary weight gain in the long term.

Can bunnies eat apples?

 

Can bunnies eat apples? 

 

Yes, it is certainly possible for bunnies to eat apples.  Most bunnies will quite like the taste of them in fact, so don’t be surprised if they look at you with those famous bunny eyes pleading for more…and more….and more…….

 

You see, we’ve got to make a caution here, because there’s one thing to keep in mind when feeding most all fruit (apples included).  And that is that fruit is going to be high in sugar, and when the sugary stuff is fed too often,  or fed too much in one serving, it is going to cause digestive problems in the short term, as well as weight gain other more serious health problems in the long term.  It is fine to feed your bunny a small serving of apple every so often, but it is important to always remember to think of fruits as “treats” and feed them in moderation.  It should also be said that the most important thing you can do for your bunny is to provide them fiber via high quality fresh timothy hay, fresh water changed daily, as well as quality rabbit pellets.  Reasonable amounts of fruit and vegetables can round out the diet.  Do these things right and you’re on your way to having a healthy and happy rabbit.

 

We hope this post was helpful, but as always, if you have any serious questions about your rabbits diet and/or wellbeing, its best to talk to professional veterinarian for advice.

Can bunnies eat grapes?

 

 Can bunnies eat grapes?

 

Bunnies sure do love their treats…and grapes are no exception!  Now, while it is okay to feed a small amount of grapes every once in a while for variety and bonding, its important that we do think of them as “treats”.

 

The truth is, fruits have quite a lot of sugar in them, and if there is one thing that can cause problems for your bunny, its eating too much sugar at one time or too often.

 

Fed too many grapes at one time, your bunny is likely to cause digestive problems  or diarrhea, which is no fun for you or your rabbit.  And in the long term too much sugar from those lovely fruits can cause weight problems or potentially worse health problems.  So the important thing to keep in mind is, if you feed your bunny some fruits as a treat, always be sure to feed in moderation.

 

Additionally, it’s worth noting that the most important thing you can provide to your bunny is a fresh supply of high quality timothy hay, fresh water changed daily, as well as quality rabbit pellets.  Do this right and you’ll be on your way to a more healthy and happy rabbit.

Can rabbits eat bananas?

Oh…bananas!  Can rabbits eat them?
The simple answer is :

The simple answer is yes.  And just in case you haven’t noticed, most rabbits absolutely LOVE them….

 

However, as with all fruits, keep in mind that they are full of sugar.  And if there is one thing that can cause digestive problems for your bunny, its eating too much sugar.  This is why its important to think of bananas and other fruits as treats.  Its 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, the fruits should really be considered extra, and too much can hurt your bunny.
