Can Rabbits eat Dog Food?

Dog food is food that is specifically made to be consumed by dogs. It is made for their diet, as they have short gastrointestinal tracts better suited for the consumption of meat.

Many commercial dog foods are made from materials considered by some authorities and dog owners to be unusable or undesirable. These may include:

  • Meat and bone meal
  • Offal (wild canines, however, do eat offal as a vital part of their diets)
  • Animal digest
  • Sugar-based sweeteners
  • Animal by-products

Some rabbit owners may have dogs as well and may feel that they could possible combine feeding both animals with the same food somehow.

So can rabbits eat dog food at all?

Unfortunately, they cant at all. Rabbits are not able to eat any animal extract foods not meat. This totally rules out dog food for rabbits and they really cant touch it.

This includes other dog foods such as dog bones, dog treats and dog treats.

There is so much bad about dog food as far as rabbits are concerned that it isn’t worth thinking about.
