Can Rabbits Eat Cauliflower?
Cauliflower and other similar vegetables are not good for rabbits because if you let them eat too much it can cause gas and bloating. However, some people feed it anyways. If you do choose to feed your rabbit cauliflower take caution to give them only very small amounts as an occasional treat or it will upset the balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive system and lead to bloating or diarrhea.
The digestive system of a rabbit is built primarily to handle hay. The fiber in the hay feed good bacteria that then produce natural fats, B-vitamins, and other nutrients for the rabbit. Feeding a grain & soy-free
rabbit food rich in grass hay (like timothy hay) that is balanced with natural vitamins
and chelated minerals
is best to keep adult rabbits healthy and playful.
Baby rabbits actually need a a high-fat diet
like their “mamma’s milk.” Most rabbit food, which is too rich in grains and grain by-products, causes diarrhea because baby rabbits don't digest large amounts of starch very well. However, baby rabbits digest a high fat rabbit food very well and thrive on it.
So, can rabbits eat cauliflower? No, not really because their digestive system is not built to handle it.
