Answer Dear Adrienne,
Since I do not know the dietary rules regarding feeding domestic animals during Passover, please help me out and let me know what you are NOT allowed to feed her. I can then give you better guidance.
For now, I suspect that a high-quality alfalfa pelleted food such as that sold by Oxbow (Bunny Basics or Bunny Basics T) would be fine. If fresh vegetables are allowed, then please see:
I've lived with companion rabbits for more than 35 years, and consider them members of my family. I can answer any questions about the biology and health of rabbits, from the commonplace to the unusual. But please note:
RULE #1: THE INTERNET IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEEK HELP IN AN EMERGENCY.
If your rabbits is LETHARGIC
If your rabbit is NOT EATING
If your rabbit is PHYSICALLY INJURED (including broken bones)
I have been rescuing and rehabilitating domestic and wild rabbits for about 30 years.
I have written articles for many rabbit rescue publications, as well as for the veterinary journal, Exotic DVM.
I own EtherBun, the internet's largest listserve dedicated to health, care, and behavior of domestic rabbits.
