Rabbits are very intelligent animals that make excellent pets. They will do important healing on children and adults at this time (January 2021).

Rabbits can live in the wild or some are domesticated. This makes a difference in their diet and other aspects of their care. We will divide this article into care of domesticated rabbits and care of rabbits out of doors.


These make good pets, we are told. They are cute, cuddly, don’t bite much and quite easy to care for.

Diet. Their needs are similar to those of dogs. Rabbits we have worked with want to eat about 25% protein in the form of dark meat chicken. Most are fast oxidizers so they also need 10-15% fat such as butter or cream.

The rest of the diet needs to be cooked vegetables from the list of preferred vegetables found in the article, Food For Daily Use. Be sure to include carrots at least once daily and preferably with both feedings.

You do not need to measure out the food exactly. Rabbits can judge how much to eat. The exact quantity will vary with the size of the rabbits.

Some say that domesticated rabbits cannot digest meat. We do not agree with this view and we believe that indoor rabbits need and can digest some meat.

Treats. Do not feed treats. So far, all of them we have checked are toxic and harmful for rabbits.

Water. Rabbits do well on many kinds of water. However, avoid distilled, reverse osmosis and artificially alkaline water. Spring water or carbon-filtered tap water are fine. Rabbits like a choice of two kinds of drinking water, just as do dogs.

Nutritional supplements. All rabbits definitely benefit from the development program supplements for their metabolic patterns.

Warmth. Rabbits have fairly thick fur and cold is not usually a problem for them if they are indoors. They do not like being out in the bitter cold and they can freeze to death if left outside on a cold night.

Cleanliness. Rabbits like a clean environment. They can sleep anywhere, though some may prefer a bed or special sleeping area that is not on a hard floor.


These are quite self-sufficient and graze on various leaves, bugs, grasses and other available food. We don’t have experience with rabbits in the wild. However, if you can catch one you can do a hair mineral test and put the rabbit on a few supplements and it would help the rabbit’s health.


Most rabbits are very fast oxidizers. This means they need extra fat with every meal. This is in addition to what is in the rest of the development diet. They also need supplements for fast oxidizers.
