True or False? Rabbits should only be fed hay in very limited quantities (Answer to Pop Quiz) |
False. Hay should be offered in large quantities on a constant basis and should be considered far more than just chewing entertainment. In addition to the invaluable fiber it contains, hay also provides vitamins, minerals, and protein in a form the rabbit's digestive tract not only can handle, but actually needs for its continued good health.
For more info on the importance of hay and fiber in the house rabbit diet, check out the Importance of Fiber article from the 3-3 issue of House Rabbit Journal.
