Vets in Surrey: Understanding the Dietary Needs of Your Pet Rabbit

After furry domestic animals such as dogs, cats, and in particular, rabbits are the most popular pets in the UK. In fact, the 2015 Animal Wellbeing Report from PDSA puts the number of these pets at 1.2 million. Traditionally, not a lot of people kept rabbits as pets largely due to lack of knowledge on their proper care. There is no precise formula for rabbit care, but with the right information from vets in Surrey, you can gather the basics. Just like other pets, rabbits have dietary needs that their owners need to know of.


The nutritional needs of a rabbit is often largely dependent on age. The diet of a young rabbit should include pellets because they are designed to provide specific nutrients for weight gain. Commercial pellets are naturally balanced and have high fibre content to cater to the needs of a growing rabbit.
