Healthy treats for rabbits

If animal lovers want to feed their rabbits healthily, they should make sure: Fresh food to use. The treats that are common in zoo retailers, such as yoghurt drops, rings or snack sticks, are completely superfluous. Rabbit keepers should rather fruit two to three times a week to offer.
