Feeding Rabbits for Optimum Nutrition

Feeding rabbits a healthy mixture of pellets, hay and a few treats will keep them happy and strong.

Although you can't tell by looking, these three varieties of pellets have varying amounts of protein. The pellets on the left are a basic 16 percent protein rabbit feed, which is suitable for most rabbits. The pellets in the middle contain 17 percent protein and have less fiber than the previous brand. The pellets on the right are an 18 percent protein feed and are specially formulated for promoting show condition.
