Guavas are tropical fruits which are found and grown in many subtropical and tropical areas. The most frequently eaten species, and the one often simply referred to as “the guava”, is the Apple Guava (Psidium guajava).. They have tough dark leaves that are opposite, simple, elliptic to ovate and 5–15 centimetres (2.0–5.9 in) long.
So can rabbits eat guava at all?
Lets take a look here and find out more, in particular their acidic, calcium, sugar, fat, fibre and sodium content.
As you can see guava contains quite a lot of phosphorus, a hint of calcium, they are quite acidic and contain quite a bit of sugar.
This means that rabbits can eat guava, but only in a few small segments once a week. Any more will be bad for their stomachs as they are quite sweet and acidic.
Guava leaves are something they can eat as well and can be fed to rabbits.
