comprehensive e-book about various ways to feed all types of rabbits. Published
by us - Raising-Rabbits.com.
What would YOU do, if you got an email like the following one asking for rabbit feeding advice?
“We found a pet rabbit on the road and took him home. We fed him a lot of lettuce and he ate the whole bowlful and drank lots of water. I was eating an oatmeal cookie, so I gave him some of that...
"The next day while I was at work he was fed some more human food, ...some noodles and some kind of nuts.
"This morning the bathroom floor was covered with what is hard to describe - it was a dark ooze and what looked like bloody urine. The amounts looked like too much for a rabbit his size. What should I do?”
Oh man. We dropped everything and finished writing our e-book:
"Feeding Your Rabbits (With or Without Pellets)"
Beet Greens: good to eat :-)
So, what do rabbits eat to stay healthy?
Not oatmeal cookies.
A rabbit's very survival might depend on what it eats (or shouldn't eat but does).

Why We Wrote "Feeding Your Rabbits"
High protein faba beans (Diana cultivar) - conditionally okay to feed
We wrote "Feeding Your Rabbits" to help brand new rabbit owners, for sure. But also:
We desire to help all rabbit breeders and owners feel comfortable with using feeds and/or forages to feed well and keep their rabbits healthy.
Commercial rabbit pellets aren't all bad. But some are definitely better than others. If you own a feed mill, no worries, we named no names. We described the qualities that make an excellent pellet, so rabbit breeders and owners can recognize both the good and the questionable, and make informed choices.
Feeding fresh forages is wonderful, but it can be tricky sometimes to ensure the rabbit gets enough protein in its diet, if you're also minimizing the amount of pellets that you feed.
There are actually quite a few high-protein forages that are readily available to most breeders and rabbit owners everywhere. We did the research so you can:
Find those protein sources
Know how to denature anti-nutrients in some of those high-protein feeds (if necessary)
Know what other feeds and forages are safe to feed to your rabbits.
Once the rabbit breeder and owner understands how and why rabbits need to eat what they eat...
You'll better recognize rabbit feeding myths masquerading as "common knowledge" permeating the nooks and crannies of the internet today.
"Common knowledge" might just be flat out wrong, if it comes through the several networks of animal rights (AR) organizations, whose only goal is to eliminate all human uses of animals.
