Can you feed a rabbit green pepper?


Answer by  Joe2533 (205)

Rabitts have very sensitive stomachs. I would not feed a rabbit green pepper because the spicyness of the pepper could cause diarrhea.

Yes, you sure can, but you must take care to make sure that you are feeding your rabbit a varied selection of fresh vegetables. These vegetables are to supplement the diet of alphalfa hay and pellets, which are very important to keeping your rabbit's system moving. Also, please, never feed your rabbit iceburg or other light green lettuces.

my rabbit loves green peppers... most rabbits do not get diahrea or stomach issues but you sure can feed them those peppers. just green, not red or orange, nor yellow.

Green peppers are all right to give to your rabbit, but make sure the rabbit eats different vegetable, too. Too much of a good thing could cause diarrhea. A healthy diet would include vegetables along with pellets and alfalfa to keep it regular.

Generally, you can feed a rabbit anything that's a vegetable, raw, and crunchy. If you didn't pick it from your garden, make sure you wash it before you give it to the rabbit. If it's a pet rabbit, limit how much fresh produce you give them (too much can cause diarrhea).

Yes, green peppers are fine for rabbits. Vegetables provide vitamins essential to the rabbits diet. But, introduce the peppers exclusively without any other vegetables in case it gives the rabbit soft stool. If you notice digestive upset or diarrhea, stop giving the rabbit green peppers. You can continue to introduce other vegetables.
