Most houseplants are also poisonous; keep them all out of reach and always make sure fruit/veg is washed before giving to your rabbit.

Finally, rabbits love crisps and sweets – we all do but high sugar foods are extremely bad for them in many ways and should not be given under any circumstance.

Poor diet – poor teeth – shortened life!
