Can Rabbits Eat Dates

Dates come under the category of treats for bunnies. So, can rabbits eat dates without getting sick? If they have a small amount, probably. But I wouldn’t recommend giving your rabbits dates at all, they are way too high in sugar content and there is a very high chance they will cause some kind of stomach upset.

Rabbits shouldn’t be eating sugary foods. They need foods high in fiber and good nutrition and vitamins. Timothy hay should make up the bulk of their diet as this keeps them healthy and is good for their digestive system. Rabbit pellets provide some other important nutritional content, and fresh water keeps them hydrated.

A cup of vegetables and leafy greens a day rounds off a healthy diet. Then things like pieces of fruits are just treats that you can offer them once a week or so. As fun as it is spoiling our pets with treats, we need to keep their health as the top priority.
