A diet for a rabbit without teeth should be soft and easy to chew. You can feed your bunny hay, fresh vegetables, and specially made food pellets.
- You can give your rabbit fresh hay to eat every day. Hay is high in fiber and helps keep your bunny’s digestive system healthy. Choose a variety of hays, such as oat hay, timothy hay, or straw.
- You can also give your bunny fresh vegetables to eat. Some good choices include carrots, cucumbers, and leafy greens like spinach or kale. Be sure to wash the vegetables thoroughly before giving them to your bunny.
- Rabbits with no teeth can also eat specially made food pellets. These pellets are high in fiber and made for rabbits with dental problems. Like fresh vegetables, give these pellets to your rabbit only after they have been washed thoroughly.
- You can also rehydrate dried food pellets by soaking them in water for 10 minutes before feeding them to your bunny. If you need to feed your bunny baby food, buy a high-fiber, unflavored variety and mix it with water until it reaches a creamy consistency.
What else can you feed
Some rabbits may be given cat food to eat, but this should only be done under your vet’s supervision. Do not give your rabbit dog food because the protein content is too low.
Be sure to give your bunny fresh water to drink every day. You can use a sipper bottle or an inverted water bottle with a small hole punched in the side.
If you have any questions about what to feed your bunny with no teeth, talk to a veterinarian.
