    My bunny will be turning 4 months soon and I hear that’s a good time to start introducing vegetables. Just wondering what the process is like, which vegetable/herb should I do first? How long should I wait in between? Etc etc thank you!

    I would wait another month to start greens. my vet had me start with romaine lettuce. one cup chopped per day. there are list of bunny safe foods online. if you give them greens to soon they can get diarrhea. also do the one cup as 1/2 cup twice a day, too much at once can cause a tummy ache.

    I wouldn’t do a whole cup of veggies all at once. When I introduce a new veggie I only let him have a few bites the first time just in case he has a bad reaction. I increase it over the next few days. I think I read somewhere that about a week is a good amount of time to wait in between new veggies.
    I personally started my bun with just grass. Then I think I did some carrot top and he’s also had lettuce, basil, mint, parsley, and green pepper so far. I’m still in the process of introducing new veggies too

    Something like romaine or green leaf lettuce is a good one to start with. Don’t start giving a cup full though – give a small piece (1 inch x 1 inch) and then increase each day if there are no problems. After a week or two of that, you can try adding something else such as coriander (cilantro).
