MORE ABOUT Rabbit Food

What your rabbit eats on a daily basis is one of the most important aspects of care to consider. Your rabbit needs food which is both tasty and nutritious, giving them all the essential vitamins and minerals they need to lead a healthy and happy life.

We offer top-quality rabbit food, including pellet food, from brands including Supreme Science Selective, Burgess Excel and Versele-Laga. All rabbit food stocked by The Hay Experts is natural and well-balanced to aid everything from joint mobility to gut health and vitality. Our in-house Animal Medicines Advisor (SQP) screens every single food we supply, to ensure we only source the best natural products that are recommended by vets. 

When you buy rabbit food from us, you can rest assured that you’re giving your rabbit all the essentials they need in their diet, from celebrated rabbit food brands.

But rabbit food does not offer your rabbit everything they need to have a healthy diet, so we stock a wide range of hays and forage (and treats!) to ensure your little ones have everything they need and desire too!

Frequently Asked Questions

What food do rabbits eat?
Rabbits eat mostly hay, forage and a small amount (about 5%) of complete rabbit food, with feeding hay and forage making up around 80% of their diet. Rabbits can also eat leafy greens and vegetables in moderation, and the occasional treat, including fruit in very small amounts.
What are a rabbit's favourite foods?
A rabbit's favourite foods are not always the foods that are good for them! Rabbits have a sweet tooth, so love fruits such as apple, banana, carrot and many other treats. These sweet treats should only be given occasionally though, as they are high in sugar. Instead, rabbits should be supplied with hay, herbs and forage, which can count for up to 80-85% of their daily diet.
What veg can rabbits eat daily?
There are many yummy veg a rabbit can eat daily. The Rabbit Welfare Association has an excellent list of safe veg and herbs owners can select from to give a healthy and suitable range of fresh produce to feed.
How many times a day should I feed my rabbit?
It is recommended that rabbits are fed twice a day.
How much food should I feed my rabbit?
A rabbit's daily diet should be made up of around 80-85% feeding hay and forage, 10% leafy greens and 5% pellets. The volume of rabbit pellets you should feed will vary depending on the exact food you have. Please check the feeding recommendations on your rabbit food packaging, and get in touch with our in-house Animal Medicines Advisor (SQP) for further guidance on this.
What is the best rabbit food brand
There are lots of good manufacturers of rabbit food, including Supreme Science Selective, Burgess Excel, Oxbow Essentials and Versele Laga Complete. We advise choosing a food which is:
  • A complete pellet
  • High in fibre
  • Rich in natural grasses and plants
We also recommend choosing a food which is suited to the life stage of your rabbit too (junior rabbit, adult rabbit, mature rabbit), as these are nutritionally balanced for the needs of your rabbit. Do get in touch with our in-house Animal Medicines Advisor (SQP) for further guidance on this.
How should you store rabbit food?
You should store rabbit food in an airtight container or sealed bag, away from sunlight, moisture and strong odours. If storing outside, you should keep it in pest-proof container so that it does not attract wild rodents or birds.
