National Cabbage Day
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable high in vitamin c, anti-inflammatory properties and cancer fighting properties. It is also a great source of vitamin K which promotes blood flow and coagulation of blood. Cabbage is high in water content while still being packed with vitamins and nutrients vital to your bunny’s health. It is not a substitute for fresh water, but it will help keep your rabbit hydrated.
Cabbage is still a great snack food for rabbits as long as it is in moderation. Cabbage should account for no more than 1/3 of your rabbit’s daily intake and should only be offered 3-4 times a week. Organically grown cabbage is best for your furry companion. Raw cabbage is really the only way to give your rabbit all of the benefits cabbage has to offer. Just like for most humans too much can cause terrible gas, bloating, and stomach up-set. Baby bunnies should not be fed cabbage though, because their little bellies may not be able to tolerate it yet.
