That’s a question many pet owners with bunnies ask. The answer? It depends on what kind of vegetables they are and how they have been cooked.
If you want to feed your rabbit cooked vegetables, the only types of vegetables it can have in any amount are carrots and green beans. Carrots need to be in somewhat smaller amounts than the green beans, but they both need to be cooked very well before feeding any amount of them to your rabbit.
If you would like to offer your pet some other vegetables in small amounts (such as peas or corn), you can do it with caution and care. Peas and corn must be blanched before serving them up to a bunny. To blanch, place the peas or corn in boiling water for about two minutes before draining and cooling them off.
Bunnies should never be fed raw vegetables since they can’t digest them properly. This can cause serious health problems down the line. Always cook vegetables before feeding them to your bunny!
So, to sum it all up, the only vegetables a rabbit can eat cooked are carrots and green beans. All other vegetables must be blanched before serving them to a bunny. Cooked vegetables should make up a small part of your pet’s overall diet. Fresh hay, fresh fruits, and specially made rabbit food should also be offered on a regular basis.
If you have any questions about what is safe to feed your bunny, please consult with your veterinarian. They will be able to help you create a diet that is healthy and meets all of your pet’s nutritional needs.
