1. Always feed specialist rabbit food – ask your vet or pet shop for advice

2. Always feed hay with your specialist rabbit food as it is essential in helping rabbits to digets their food- it also keeps their teeth healthy.

3.  Try dried or fresh grass

4. Provide some leafy vegetables – good for their teeth!

5. Give a few root vegetables (but go easy on the carrots which actually aren’t that good for rabbits!)

6. Always have plenty of fresh water available – they like it best from a metal tipped feeding bottle, check the bottle regularly to make sure it’s working properly.

7. Carrot tops can be a treat – but only a few because they’re loaded with calcium and your rabbit doesn’t need too much of that.

8. DON’T give them sticky or sugary treats – a real no-no for their teeth.

9. Rabbits are quite sensitive, so if you do change their food, do it gradually

10. Rabbits can get fat quickly if they're not eating the right food or taking enough exercise. Use the Rabbit Pet Size-O-Meter every four weeks or so to check your rabbits body condition.
