Do rabbits eat onions?

Find out in this blog post! This blog post is about how rabbits can eat onions and what it does to them. First, let’s talk about whether or not they should be eating onion at all. Rabbits are herbivores who typically feed on plants such as hay and grasses; therefore, do not usually consume any type of meat protein sources including eggs, milk products, fish or poultry (including chicken).

However there are some exceptions for animals that have been domesticated by humans so don’t worry too much if you see your pet rabbit with a carrot in his mouth! Next we will discuss the effects of consuming onions specifically. The most common symptoms include excessive gas production due to high sulfur levels found in this vegetable which would cause gastrointestinal irritation with abdominal pain and nausea.

This is due to the release of hydrogen sulfide from the onion that would go through a rabbit’s digestive system, be exhaled out in large quantities as well as lead to an increase in gastrointestinal motility which can cause diarrhea or even vomiting.

Lastly we will discuss whether rabbits should eat carrots at all! The answer might surprise you but rabbits are able to tolerate carrot consumption better than onions because its high sugar content makes it less irritating on their stomachs (carrots also contain antioxidants). Carrot-based foods such as hay cubes make for healthy snacks because they provide fiber while being low calorie so feel free to feed your pet some if he/she seems hungry! So what do you think?
