Can Rabbits Eat Celery
Updated: Feb 3
Part 1 of our "A Bunny Tale of Veggies" to help you understand your bunny's diet.
If you have a pet bunny, or are considering having one, it is important to understand what they can and cannot eat. One of the most common questions asked by rabbit owners is whether rabbits can eat celery. The answer is yes, but with some important considerations.
Celery is a great source of fiber, which is essential for rabbits' digestive health. However, it is also high in water content, which can lead to digestive upset in some rabbits. It is important to introduce celery into your rabbit's diet gradually, in small amounts, to avoid digestive issues.
Before you feed your bunny celery, make sure to wash it thoroughly to remove any pesticides or other contaminants. It is also important to feed celery in moderation, as it is not a staple food in their diet. Celery should make up no more than 10% of your rabbit's daily diet, and should be supplemented with a mix of hay, fresh vegetables, and a high-quality pellet food.
