Did you know that carrots actually aren’t very good for rabbits?!  They are high in sugar and can cause weight gain, tooth decay and slow down the gut due to an excess of sugars fermenting in the stomach.  Wild rabbits would not normally eat carrots. They may go for the leafy green shoots which is perhaps where the association comes from, but not the root.  

Of course, many rabbits will enjoy the odd carrot.  They love a variety of flavours and will often opt for the sweet stuff, but to have a happy healthy bunny, keep them as a treat! No more than ¼ of a carrot, once a week!
