Aloha! 

Im Papa Papaya from Hawaii.

Fruit is a safe treat for a rabbit in small quantities.

Hawaiian for rabbit is "lapaki."

 

High fiber fruits are the best choice:  

Sugar can upset the micro-organism balance in the cecum so try these in limited quantities:

  • Apples (NOT the seeds they are toxic)

  • Pears

  • Nectarines

  • Peaches

  • Papaya

  • Strawberries

  • Raspberries

  • Bananas and grapes (very limited amounts they are very high in sugar)

  • Pineapple (some varieties are too acidic and will burn mouth tissues - so be careful)

DO NOT Give Your Rabbit These:

  • Human treats or candies

  • Cereals

  • Nuts

  • Breads

  • Chocolate

  • Grains like crackers or pasta

  • Pet store treats or chews full of dried corn, sugar, etc. 

 

All About Chewing:

  • Try apple branches to give your rabbits something they can really get their teeth into . . . they love chewing and apple branches are safe. 

  • Pinecones that have been cleaned and baked from rabbit suppliers are suitable for chewing. 

  • Many woods are toxic to rabbits so be careful! 

  • Untreated willow baskets, and chew blocks from the pet store are okay, too!  

  • Timothy hay cubes and apple/timothy cubes available from Oxbow Hay and American Pet Diner for chewing.
