Many people are not familiar with arugula and probably don’t buy it on its own. It’s a popular vegetable found in salads and other pre-packed foods though. It’s basically a small herby leaf that’s native to the Mediterranean and adds flavour to salads.
With this in mind, can rabbits eat argula and is it safe to give to them as part of their diet?
I’m sure you have given your bunnies some left over salad leaves before and other leafy greens. But it’s always a good idea to check what is and isn’t good for them. Rabbits have sensitive digestive systems and can be easily upset.
Arugula is fine for rabbits to eat and will not cause them any problems – in moderation. Most like the taste in my experience and will happily eat it up as soon as you give it to them. It’s always rewarding seeing our pets enjoying a treat, but keep it in moderation.
Remember, a rabbit’s diet should be primarily Timothy Hay and pellets to provide enough fiber and roughage to keep them healthy. Vegetables and leafy greens are to be given to compliment their diet and add some variation.
