can rabbits eat watermelon ?

Home

Watermelon is one of the best fruits that I like to eat because it has a wonderful taste, but does this apply to the bunny? Does the rabbit-like watermelon like me, or does watermelon make the rabbit get sick, in fact, a bunny can eat watermelon and it will not cause him problems at all if he eats it once And two times a week within a diet with vegetables

can rabbits eat watermelon ?

Watermelon is one of the best fruits that I advise you to offer to your rabbit, but in a small amount, of course, watermelon, like other types of fruit, contains a high percentage of sugars, and as we all know that sugars cause your rabbit to have diarrhea and obesity, too, watermelon contains a high percentage of water that may cause your rabbit to swell for that. Give watermelon to your rabbit once or twice a week, we also recommend that you cut watermelon in small pieces and not give it the watermelon peel, one of the advantages of watermelon is that it contains vitamin C that the rabbit cannot produce on its own, also contains a high percentage of calcium

Benefits of watermelon for rabbits

  1. Good source of Vitamin C:watermelon contains a high percentage of vitamin C, which the rabbit cannot  produce on his own, so he needs it from an external source ,Each 100 gm of watermelon contains 8.1 mg of Vitamin C.
  2. Good source of Calcium :Calcium helps strengthen and build bones and muscles ,Each 100 gm of watermelon contains 7 mg of calcium

other safe food you can provide to you rabbit

  1. Cucumber: One of the best vegetables that you can offer to your rabbit, but it must be fresh and well washed. We recommend that you cut small pieces before giving it to your rabbit.
  2. Roman lettuce: Everyone is advised to give your rabbit romaine lettuce and not to ice lettuce because it contains a high percentage of water that may cause your rabbit to swell, but Roman lettuce is very good, lettuce is also easy to digest and contains a high proportion of vitamin C that your rabbit needs
  3. As for the fruit, we recommend that you give him bananas, strawberries or apples, but without seeds, it is preferable to give him a small amount of fruit because it contains a high percentage of sugars that may cause your rabbit to have diarrhea and obesity. The fruit should also be part of the diet with vegetables

Conclusion

Watermelon is one of the best fruits that I advise you to give to your son, but not in large quantities, so that he does not suffer from diarrhea or obesity, I do not recommend that you give him watermelon peel, as it is difficult for the rabbit to digest, although it contains a high nutritional value.
