They don't drink.

Post by KatieB on Sun Jun 22, 2014 5:31 pm

Charlie and Annie just don't ever drink.
Even in this heat - they still don't.

I've tried a drop of juice on ther water and I've tried bottles and bowls.

Any ideas guys ?

They may be getting enough from the greens, we have some buns that don't seem to drink much but they must be as they seem ok  Smile 

We use to mix a little Ribena light in a water dish if we had a rabbit that needed to drink.

Try dunking their veggies in water before giving to them. Might get a little into them.

They probably get a fair amount from the grass as they are outdoors. Also you could feed more watery veg and fruit such as cucumber.

My two are getting a lot of garden time at the moment since it is so dry at present - they go out for at least a couple of hours a day and quite often longer, and so consequently they are taking in a lot of grass. I have also noticed that they don't appear to be drinking much from their bowl when they're indoors, but I can only put it down to the fact they're spending more time outside...

Might be the same for your two?

Rabbits get a lot out of grass and fresh greens.  Smile
