UNSAFE/TOXIC TO RABBITS!!!

All house plants should be considered toxic!

Important Tips:

Identify wild plants - You don’t want to poison your rabbits so look out for poisonous flowers and plants

Thoroughly wash all veg!

Keep your rabbits’ vaccinations up to date in case of spreading diseases from infected wild rabbits. If collecting wild plants, avoid areas visited by dogs and plant pesticides.

Never feed lawn clippings! these can be extremely harmful to bunnies as they ferment quickly.

Provide fresh good quality hay. it should be dry, sweet smelling and free from grit, dust and mould. As well as providing the nutrients they need, it has many other benefits, including keeping their teeth in order AND to aid boredom we recommend filling one of our stainless steel hay feeders with luscious timothy hay for your rabbit!

Keep an eye on your rabbits’ droppings. You can tell a lot about your rabbits' health from their droppings. If they are small dry dark or runny you will need to try increasing the hay or grass and decreasing the greens and veggies.

Its advised to provide both a bowl and a bottle of water for your rabbit if you can.

Change the water in both bowl & bottle daily, clean them regularly and keep them free of any slime or debris.
