Can Rabbits Eat Cream Crackers?

Cream crackers are a big favourite with so many around the world and a great snack for people to have.

We love cream crackers in our home, and eat them all the time. Our daughter especially adores them and can munch on them all day long.

You can pretty much put most things on them, and they are a great savoury snack.

So with their dryness, lack of anything majorly bad in them can rabbits eat cream crackers at all?

Lets take a look at their nutritional data.

In particular their calcium, fat, starch, sugar, and acidic content is of most interest as they are the nutrients that effect the health of rabbits the most.

As you can see they are quite high in fat, have some sugar in them but have a high calcium content.

So cream crackers are fine for rabbits to nibble on, but nothing more than that. They should not be eaten more regularly than that. Once a week at the most should suffice but nothing more than that.
