Rabbit nutrition and care


Kaninchen Fütterung Rabbits do well on foods rich in crude fibre, such as grass, hay or vegetables. However, since domestic rabbits, unlike their free-living relatives, cannot choose their own food, it is important to ensure that the ration has a good balance of energy, protein and minerals.
Dust- and germ-free hay forms the main feed and must be freely available at all times. Depending on the energy requirements, the basic feed is supplemented with cereal and protein components.
Lactating females or males in the breeding phase have a very high requirement, animals in the breeding pen a lower one. A well-balanced mineral feed in combination with a freely accessible salt lick rounds off the daily menu.
General feeding instructions:
  • High-protein, fresh hay can lead to digestive disorders. Therefore, only feed hay that has been stored for at least 8 weeks.
  • Avoid sudden changes in feed
  • Feed at regular times
  • Hay & fresh, clean water must always be available

Varied feeding options, suitable drinkers and much more...


Rabbits are very clean animals and therefore only feel comfortable in a well-kept home! Foul-smelling, damp bedding and dirty drinking troughs can also lead to illness.

Harsh cleaning agents not only disturb the rabbits' sensitive sense of smell, but can also burn their skin and mucous membranes. Therefore, only water or suitable cage cleaning agents should be used for cleaning.

To prolong the life of the hutch, you should treat the wood with suitable paint. The best location is under a canopy on the side facing away from the weather. When choosing the right size, pay attention to the country-specific animal welfare standards!
