    I don’t think you can feed any potato because of the starch. Anyone else?

    I didnt think so either, but Jennifer here (the lady of this wonderful website) feeds her Jack sweet potato (generally a restricted veggie) due to his bladder stones.
    I read this in the Webcams page.
    Interesting.

    Yes, Jennifer feeds this to Jack but he also gets no pellets either and his vet has given this as a guideline.

    I have heard of people feeding their rabbits sweet potatoes in the past but it is a carbohydrate so unless there is a reason to feed them and your vet is okay with it, then it’s probably not a good idea. Jennifer does mention that it can be used in a very small amount as a treat.

    Well, it isn’t good idea to feed any kind of potatoes to rabbits if you are feeding them pellets, too. It is high in carbs. I suggest not to feed sweet potatoes at all unless vet say it is okay to feed it to sick bunnies.

    I saw on HRS or on here under diet etc   that sweet potato is a no no.  

    Previous to that I thought it was ok and gave mine a little bit.  They love it and weren’t harmed.   They were fine after eating it  and the next day too.

    I think they preferred it baked or cooked somehow though.

    My bun Shinobu keeps escaping to get to the sweet potatoes when I’m not home. She goes crazy for them.
