Do you have rabbits at home? Did you know that rabbits have open-rooted teeth, that continue to grow throughout their lives? Chewing on coarse foliage helps them to wear their teeth down, and prevents overgrown teeth which can also form sharp, painful spurs. In the wild, rabbits would spend much of their time foraging for suitable food, and this is something you can enable them to do at home too. Feed plenty of hay (at least their own body size in hay daily), and hide commercial nuggets and fresh greens around their environment for them to search out. Feeding time will be so much fun! If you’d like more advice on the most suitable diet for your bouncing buddy, please do get in touch.
