    An Emphasis On Rabbit Nutrition and Feeding

    At Northwood Animal Hospital you will find that our veterinarians and staff place an emphasis on the importance of proper nutrition for all phases of your rabbit's life. Whether your rabbit is a baby kitten, adolescent, adult or senior, each stage of rabbit's life comes with some special nutritional considerations.

    Our veterinarians are here to help you understand your rabbit's nutritional needs, including:

    • The proper leafy greens to feed your rabbit
    • Which vegetables are appropriate to feed your rabbit and those which are not appropriate
    • Fruits that you can feed your rabbit
    • Information about how your rabbit processes its food and nutrition

    We can also help create a custom rabbit nutrition program taking into consideration age, weight, certain health conditions, dental integrity, systemic issues, and physical fitness to name a few. As with humans, proper rabbit nutrition is CRITICAL to preventing and sometimes curing any ailments a rabbit may have. A balanced diet is essential for both supporting and maintaining optimal health. Of course, your rabbit cannot choose his or her own diet, and therefore the burden of making good health choices is on you. Understanding the nutritional needs of your rabbit is an important part of your responsibility to ensure they lead and healthy and happy life for many years to come.
