Temporary Foods for Rabbits?

Hello all...

its been a while i didnt come here... and im glad to inform that all my rabbits are all very well in health and everything...

thanks to all help been proposed by the forumers..

Anyway... this is my latest issue... i usually just fed my rabbits normal green pellets and hay.... and now... i dont know how and why... the only sole distributor of both hay and pellets in my country experiencing shortage of both products and thus... all the pellets and hays are sold out..

My rabbits got nothing to eat!!!! i provide them with carrots now but that ain't healthy if i keep feeding them everyday... im quite scared to introduce veggies to them afraid that will affect their stomach?

can somebody recommends me any food that will be suitable for their tummy now? as for temporary purposes until new stocks arrive (and i pray that it wont take long) .. its been 3 days now .... s**pid shop!! >:-E

Guinea pigs and Rabbits need timothy hay for food and digestion.

Are there any horse stables or barns near by that you can buy hay from?

When you say distributor, do you mean the store or someone who delivers to the store? If the store is out of your supplies, you can sometimes get the store to special order them for you only.

As long as it hasn't been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides, you can pluck fresh grass from your yard. Can you buy any herbs at your grocer? Cilantro, kale, mustard greens, radish tops, carrot tops, parsley, spinach, dandelion greens, clover, they can have all those.

As long as you stay away from bloat-causing veggies they should be fine. Besides, everything listed is a leafy green, so their tummies should take to it well

I would feed grass and weeds from outside along with herbs and leafy green vegetables.

Go out to a field and get them some grass and hay. They need it for regular digestion. If you still have pellets feed them in smaller amounts mixed with the new grases and hays.
