From the Rabbit Hole: Community Insights on Healthy Treats

At Just4rabbits we realise how important it is to give your buns only the healthiest treats. We decided to do a little burrowing and see how other bun owners felt about this same topic.

In a popular online rabbit forum, over 40 experienced rabbit owners shared their treat recommendations. The consensus was clear - processed treats full of sugar and fillers should be avoided!!

The most repeated suggestion was to avoid processed, commercial treats loaded with fat, sugars, and fillers like corn. Instead, natural, minimally processed options were strongly encouraged, including:

  • Hay-based cookies and nibbles, with the following ingredients:
    • Dried foraged greens like dandelion, plantain, and chicory
    • Limited fruits like apple, banana, and strawberry in very small amounts
    • Herbs like mint, parsley, and cilantro

As one participant put it: "Remember things that are brightly coloured and fun shapes seem more treat-like and more appealing, but our bunnies have NO idea what’s a treat and what isn’t."

Instead, participants repeatedly suggested all-natural, minimally processed treats:

  • "Try to aim more for all-natural selections, this means unprocessed (NO flours, oils etc.) And AVOID highly fatty treats (things containing oats, nuts etc.)”
  • Specific examples endorsed included "Dried forage... hay-based cookies with fruit... hay based cookies... Fibre sticks... Barley rings... Herbs- mint/parsley/coriander etc.”
  • Limited fruits were also suggested: “Banana- Potassium. Remember fruits are HIGH in sugar and too much can disrupt the gut, so limit these types of treats to one, small slice every one to two weeks.”

The takeaway is clear - natural treats from reputable providers, with no added sugars or fillers, are the best way to show your bunny love through healthy, memorable bonding.
