      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.

      Hi Courtney!
