Can Rabbits Eat Blueberries

Can rabbits eat blueberries? They can, but it’s not a good idea. I will explain:

Blueberries are packed full of good vitamins and nutrition. They are a super-food for us in fact, and taste great. But rabbits have a very different digestive system to humans, and they are especially sensitive to fruits high in sugar. Like a lot of fruits, blueberries have a lot of sugar in, this may come as a surprise to you but it’s true.

Rabbits need a lot of fiber in their diets. Which is why you should always make Timothy hay available and supplement their diet with good quality pellets. You should feed them some leafy greens, but no more than 15% of their diet should be greens. Then fruits and other treats are just to be given every few days in small mounts.

We all enjoy giving our pets treats. Seeing their happy faces and watching them gobble up some fruit is fun to see. But remember, as a responsible owner it’s up to you to ensure you have their best interests are heart and are keeping them healthy.
