Sweet potato is a vegetable that is large, starchy and sweet tasting. It is a root vegetable that has young leaves and shoots that are sometimes eaten as greens. It is only distantly related to the potato.
So can rabbits eat sweet potatoes at all?
Let’s take a look at its nutritional data in particular its sugar, fat, fibre, sodium, phosphorus, and acidic content.
As you can see sweet potatoes contain quite a large amount of phosphorus, a hint of calcium, a very large amount of acidic content and a hint of fat and a little sugar.
This means that unfortunately rabbits can’t eat sweet potatoes. It is just too acidic for their tummies and will hurt them if it is eaten.
It also means that they cant eat their skin and peelings as well.
