Can A Rabbit Eat Pumpkin?

Rabbits are herbivores and they love to eat plants like beets, spinach, broccoli, beans, and carrots. But what about pumpkins?

Rabbits can eat the flesh and the skin/rind of pumpkins. It is safer to feed rabbits pumpkin in moderation. The amount you feed them depends on how big they are.

Pumpkins contain high levels of fiber, starch, and sugar. Giving rabbits too much at once can upset the balance of their gastrointestinal flora.

Rabbits cannot digest fat efficiently. Fat will reduce the movement of the gastrointestinal tract and the rate of digestion of rabbits.

Raw pumpkins are the best you can give your rabbits. You should avoid giving your rabbit canned pumpkin as it contains other chemicals such as preservatives.
