Plums are a drupe fruit of the subgenus Prunusof the genus Prunus. They have a dusty-white coating that gives them a glaucous appearance and a rich yellow flesh and a stone in the centre.
Dried plum fruits are called dried plums or prunes, although prunes are a distinct type of plum.
So can rabbits eat plums?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data in particular their sugar, calcium, fat, phosphorus, sodium and acidic content
As you can see plums contain a hint of phosphorus, calcium, a little acid, a hint of fat, fibre but a lot of sugar.
This means that rabbits can eat plums. But they can only have a little of them due to their sweetness.
Just chop it up into segments for them and give them a few a week. Strip out the stone.
Because they also have a a lot of water in them, they can also cause bloat of they have too much of them, so be careful how much you feed rabbits.
