Rabbits Are Vegetable Lovers

Rabbits are vegetable lovers, they should be fresh and crisp. Look for a selection of different varieties of dark, green leafy veggies and root veggies such as carrots, and green leaf lettuce. Stay away from beans and rhubarb. Select at least three kinds of vegetables daily. A variety is necessary in order to obtain the necessary nutrients, with one each day that contains Vitamin A. Add one vegetable to diet at a time. Eliminate if it causes soft stools or diarrhea. Here are some veggie rabbits love: Alfalfa spouts, Basil, Brussels sprouts, Carrots, Celery, Mint, Parsley, Peppermint leaves, Broccoli, Beet tops, Endive, Romaine leaves, Dandelion green etc. For me, I like to eat Morning glory, Basil, Chinese Kale, Choi Sum, Baby corn and Carrot. My caretaker buy only organic vegetables because they are safe from presticides.

Be careful not to give your rabbit too many vegetables, as they are high in water content and can cause diarrhea or loose stools. If this happens, reduce or eliminate veggie from the diet.

Moreover, don't give your rabbit so many veggies that he starts to eat them only and neglect his pallets. Veggies should be a supplement, not a main dietary staple.

Para Grass The Best For Rabbit

Para Grass is an essential component of a rabbit's healthy diet. One reason why is that feeding a rabbit fresh grass on a daily basic seems to reduce rabbits tendencies to pull out and consume or chew on their own hair, which leads to hairballs. In my country, there are a lot of Para Grass. It is a native grass and grows naturally. It is a medium size sprawling grass that may be noticd covering large areas growing in water or on land. Para Grass has leaf nodes swolling with dense shaggy hairs. Rabbits also love to diet Para Grass, my caretake always feeds me Para Grass but I eat it a little because I quite like Timothy Hay.

My Hay

It is recommended that your rabbit eat a diet that is grass or hay based. So do I. I eat Timothy Hay. It is great taste. This high-quality hay aids her natural digestive process with fiber and because it is low in calcium, it decreases the chances of urinary tract problems developing. The high-fiber content also discourages obesity. Daily munchings will keep her healthy and happy! Please note that when you rabbit is a baby, she can have lots of alfalfa hay. As she grows older, she should get very little alfafa hay. Most of the hay an adult rabbit eats should be Timothy Hay, oat hay or grass hay. Your rabbit will prefer it if you keep the hay off of the cage floor with a hay manger. This will keep the hay cleaner and tastier for her.

Hay For Rabbit

Hay is essential to a rabbit's good health, providing roughage which reduces the danger of hairballs and other blockages and should be available 24 hours a day. Hay is very high in fiber, and your rabbit needs fresh hay every day. A rabbit younger than 6 months should have alfalfa hay, but and older rabbit should have timothy hay or grass hay because it has fewer calories and calcium content than alfalfa hay. You can put hay in the ball. I can eat it and play the ball altogether.

What Should The Rabbit Eat?

Do you know I'm a vegetarian? I don't eat meat. Rabbit food should be made of good quality pellets, fresh hay (alfalfa, grass, oat or timothy) water and fresh vegetables. Anything beyond that is a "treat" and should be given in limited quantities. Rabbits need a diet that is very high fiber (at least 18%). Do not purchese more than 6 weeks worth of feed at a time, as it will become spoiled. Pellets should be limited in amount, as the rabbit grows older and hay should be available 24 hours a day. My pellets are Timothy, Briter Bunny and XtraVital. I eat them mix up. I like them. Here are my pellets.

Do You Want A Rabbit?

Are you think about getting a rabbit as an animal companion? Rabbits are timid creatured, and frighten easily. Fast movements and lound noises around them may frighten them, they may struggle or try to get away and hide. And sometimes, I may scratch or nip at you, however it is being done out of fright and not aggressive. This should be considered if you are planning to have your rabbit to your family. You should think about your goal with your animal, and try to decide on a breed that will be the proper size you desire. Naturally the smaller breeds require less pen space, and less feed. You should choose the breeds, sizes, colors, speaking with breeders, ect. may be the best way to determine which breed will be best for you.


Six month later, I change a lot. Do you remember me?

Rabbits In Thailand

Rabbits are incresingly popular pets within Thailand. There are many kind of rabbits. They pet rabbits as a hobby. Thai people don't eat rabbit. OH! Luckily me. Now I'd like to introduce some of my friends to you.

Rabbit appears in Thailand a long time ago. Most of them are short hair and a little long face.

The Holland Lop rabbit is known as an excellent breeder. It is characterized for having a bulky, stocky and a muscular body. The shoulders and chest should be broad and well filled, same as the hindquarters. The head being massive in appearance setting high on the shoulders and close to the shoulders showing no neck. The legs are to be short, thick, straight, and heavily boned for the size of the animal. Ears are to be bell-shaped and short, no longer than 1 inch below the chin.

The Netherland Dwarf rabbits were developed in Europe and are thought to be based on the British Polish breeds. It is suggested that these early dwarf rabbits were seen in Holland, which is where they got the name "Netherland" dwarf rabbits. The main feature of Netherland Dwarf rabbits is their small size. - weighing only 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. They are very compact, with short little ears that stand straight up. Their fur is short, dense, soft, and glossy.

Jerry Woody looks close to Teddy but it has shorter hair on its face. When it is a full maturity, the body is bigger.

Woody Toy look almost alike Teddy Bear because it was developed from Teddy to make it smaller. Woody Toy has short triangle ear.

And me...Teddy Bear. I'm non-peddegree rabbit because I am a mixture between Thai rabbit and Jerry Woody. My body is nearly round. I have a fluffy hair and short ear.

Let Your Rabbit Exercise Everyday

I like my new house because my owner keeps me indoor and never put me in a cage. I like to jump onto the sofa and sleep under the table. My house has a big yard. I run outdoor everyday. It makes me healthier. You should have your rabbit out to exercise 1-2 times a day for 30-60 minutes.
