Can A Rabbit Eat Yard Grass?
Is it ok for my pet rabbit to eat the grass in the yard when it is outside?
Rabbits have a unique digestive system, which best suits a high fiber, low protein, low energy diet. A high fiber diet, as well as being essential for digestion, also helps them to keep their teeth trim. All a rabbit really needs is a good quality rabbit mix containing cereal grains, minerals and vitamins, a constant supply of fresh hay, fresh water and small quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables.
However, in the wild they eat grass and graze on vegetation. Its therefore not a problem to let him nibble on the grass in your yard unless the grass is chemically treated. Be absolutely sure that nothing has been used on the grass within the last 6 years or so. Some chemicals can remain in the soil for that long.
