Rabbits are herbivores and thus their proteins and fats should come from plant-based sources, which they can more easily digest than animal-based ones. Look for pelleted diets, which contain ingredients like alfalfa, which contains high amounts of plant-based dietary protein for bunnies. Vegetable oils contained in the pellets provide the small amounts fats, around 2 percent, which your bunny needs to keep her coat shiny.

 

 

 

HAY!



Perhaps the single most important item in the rabbit diet is grass HAY, and it should be fed in unlimited quantities to both adults and baby rabbits. A rabbit fed only commercial rabbit pellets does not get enough long fiber to keep the intestines in good working order. The long fibers in the hay push things through the gut and keep the intestinal muscles in good tone. In addition to keeping the intestinal contents moving at the rate at which nature intended, hay may also help prevent intestinal impactions caused by ingested hair or other indigestible items



http://rabbit.org/natural-nutrition-part-ii-pellets-and-veggies-2/   read the vegetarian section they still need pellets
