Plants and vegetables as rabbit food

Eating forageDiet is very important for rabbits.  A good diet of grass, leafy green plants, vegetables and hay will prevent many health problems, such as obesity and acquired dental disease. Foraging for wild plants and weeds is increasingly popular but many owners worry about which plants to select.  This gallery shows pictures that may be useful when choosing which plants to pick.  Plant toxicity is seldom a problem but it is sensible to stay with 4-5 favourite plants each day that you recognise and know your rabbits will eat. These are shown as a separate collection from other wild plants and trees that you may encounter and could pick. Pictures of plants to avoid are shown separately.
