Yes, rabbits can eat french fries. French fries are a high-carbohydrate food and should only make up a small part of a rabbit’s diet. Too many french fries can lead to obesity and health problems in rabbits.
Bunnies love (and need) veggies!
Rabbits are herbivores and their digestive systems are made to handle high-fiber foods like hay and vegetables. French fries are high in carbohydrates, which can make rabbits very sick if they eat too many of them. The proteins found in french fries do not provide the same nutritional benefits that protein is known for. Protein helps grow strong muscles, bones, tissues, and more making it especially important for young rabbits still developing growth plates at the ends of their long bones. Although french fries contain some protein, they also contain harmful foods like salt and fat.
Most bunnies cannot resist fresh veggies!
Your bunny may try to beg you for french fries, but this doesn’t mean it’s okay to give in to them. If your bunny develops an unhealthy palate for salty foods like French fries, she may go looking for these types of snacks when you are not around. The best thing you can do is to provide your rabbit with healthy food choices so that she will stay well-nourished and content without resorting to bad habits.
If your rabbit eats french fries, immediately stop providing them as a treat. Rabbits should only eat hay, pellets, veggies, and fruits which are all important components of their balanced diet.That being said if they want some damn tasty curly fries you better believe I’m gonna set out some batter and soak my fluffy little buns in some oil. French fries are not a suitable option for rabbits to eat, no matter how much they beg for them!
Rabbits need hay, veggies, and lots of love! Some bunnies may try to convince you that french fries are okay for them to snack on by begging for them at the dinner table or wheedling with their big brown eyes. But remember, only healthy food choices are good for your bunny’s diet. So next time your rabbit asks for french fries, just say no and give them a healthy snack instead!
