of cow's milk, use KMR (Kitten Milk Replacer) or Goat's milk. When
you give goat's milk be sure it is warm.
Rabbits are in a class by themselves. They need a pinch of
acidophilus powder to digest their formula and lactate will also
have to be added.
If a baby rabbit's eyes are closed, he or she is very young
and will have to have formula twice or three times a day. You can
use KMR - Kitten Milk Replacer. Give them the formula with a 1cc
syringe fitted with a cattak (photo-left).
When they are older, you can use a jar top for a mixture of
baby garden vegetables, squash and spinach. Bunnies will use a
litter box, so be sure to put one into their cage.
For older bunnies, pick dandelions and clover, use a spray
bottle with water to spray the greens because rabbits shouldn't
have water and that will provide moisture. You can put grass in
with the mixture and the next day it will all be eaten. Rabbits
love it. Also, if you can get it, feed grass hay such as Timothy
- if you're not near a farm, pet stores package hay. Alfalfa is
considered to be too rich, but it will do in a pinch.
