Easter is almost here! You know what that means, right? Many bunnies will be brought home as a holiday gift for the family! If you are one of these people who is thinking of making a bunny part of your family this season, check out why timothy hay and dark leafy greens are a super important part of your new pet’s diet!
First off as we know, rabbits are 100% herbivores. Keeping a balanced diet of the right type of hay and dark greens is crucial as they provide the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients needed to provide them with the healthiest diet possible. For rabbits 7 months and older, grass hay should make up about 80% of their diet, 10% other dark leafy green veggies, 5% healthy pellets, and 0 to 5% healthy treats.
