    Hey. Just one question. Can black/Dark bread be given to rabbits? I personally dont give any type of bread to my buns but I do know here where I live people give their rabbits some bread.
    I know that white bread is high in starch and complex carbohydrates so for that its bad for rabbits but black/dark bread? I have readed that dark bread is healthier than regular bread for rabbits but…I feel like its better just to avoid all the types of breads there are than have a rabbit get health issues.
    Oh also in one of the fb groups one lady said that she heard black bread is too acidic to give it to rabbits.

    Any info is welcomed.

    Maybe it would be slightly less bad, but it’s certainly not good for them. Like you say, bread should be avoided because of rabbits’ very sensitive guts. There is absolutely no benefit to feeding them bread of any kind.

    I agree. It probably isn’t going to kill them, but it isn’t good for them either. There are tons of healthy treat options out there, I don’t see any reason to give bread.

    I think where diet is concerned, it’s helpful to just think of what they have access to naturally in the wild. Of course since pet bunnies have been domesticated, they have lost the ability to identify dangerous foods (including poisonous plants or fruits), but in any case, “human” food like chocolate, bread, biscuits or cookies etc. are almost, if not always not beneficial for them. It’s way better to stick to natural options

    I am only speaking for myself here… but I think No bread is good for Rabbits. There’s just too much protein in there for them to digest and fat for them to digest easily. I would also be worried about the salt, sugar and yeast causing real gut problems too.
