What not to feed your rabbit

Foods that you cant feed your rabbit

As a bunny owner, you want to know what you can and can’t feed your rabbit, so we have put together a forever-updating list of just that! Who thought being a bunny owner was tough work?


Ever heard of “Persin”? Me neither! This is a nasty toxic principle found in avocados that can really leave your bunny in a fatal position if not taken to a vet asap.

Possible issues if ingested:

  • Respiratory Distress
  • Congestion
  • Fluid accumulation around vital organs
  • Instant death


Who would have thought Iceberg Lettuce is on the NO, NO list! I was just as shocked as you are and based on a bit of research, I found that a chemical called “Lactucarium” is to give rabbits a high or stoned effect similar to Opium.

Possible issues if ingested:

  • Lethargic
  • Tiredness
  • Fatigue


High fat is something that effects all species that leads to many issues in the body & Walnuts are way up there in the fatty list to give to your bunnies. 

Possible issues if ingested:

  • Uncomfortable Indigestion
  • Weight gain
  • Other medical conditions


Like most pets, chocolate too is a big no, no because of one simple reason, It’s poisonous. This has no place in a rabbits diet so please don’t think that you’re giving it a treat because you are actually putting your bunny in harm’s way. 

Possible issues if ingested:

  • Slow death
  • Stomach pain
  • Severe constipation


You won’t believe it but it has been reported that some have tried to feed their rabbits the same diet they give to their dogs/cats. Let’s get one thing straight, rabbits are herbivores so they only require a plant-based diet.

Possible issues if ingested:

  • Stomach inflammation
  • Digestion failure
  • Death

    1. Do NOT feed your rabbit bread. All their diet is , is Good quality hay , veggies (not carrots or ice berg) , water and the occasional bit of fruit that’s it.
