The bulk of their ration should be fresh grass or hay, to promote the proper functioning of the digestive system. Be careful not to have fun or try to give it sweet foods like chocolate or cakes, they are toxic to the rabbit.
The diet of the rabbit is thus distributed:
Hay and greenery: 75% of the ration. Hay and grass can be given at will. The rabbit must always have enough herbs or hay to eat. They constitute the bulk of the rabbit’s diet.
Green vegetables: 20% of the ration. Green vegetables such as salad, parsley or carrot tops can be given at the rate of a handful a day. Some vegetables such as salad should not be given at will because the large amount of water can cause an imbalance of the intestinal flora. The carrots themselves, peppers or tomato do not represent a vegetable “green”.
