Summer is in full swing, is your bunny staying cool as a cucumber?

Bunnies can handle cold weather much better than they handle hot weather so make sure your bunny is in a cool room with an A/C or fan (with a bunny-proofed cord). There are several ways to keep your bunny cool. Ceramic tiles to lay on, cooling mats from the pet store, frozen water bottles to lay next to your bunny, ice cubes in your bunny’s water crock, and rubbing or spraying cool water on your bunnies ears are but a few ways to help your bunny stay cool this summer. Your bunny will appreciate plenty of dampened greens to cool off. Bunnies don’t just have big ears to look cute or hear well, they are also for cooling off your bunny since bunnies don’t sweat. If you happen to have a long haired rabbit like an Angora or American Fuzzy Lop, a nice haircut will help to keep your bunny cool.

Our fresh melon salad recipe is another way to help keep your bunny cool.

Summer Melon Salad

(Serves 2 Bunnies)


Cantaloupe (or other melon of your choice)

2 cups Romaine Lettuce

1 cup Dandelion

Few sprigs Dill

½ cup Escarole


Cut the cantaloupe in half. Scoop out most of the fruit flesh from one half, leaving about 1/8” -1/4” of fruit. (Reserve the other half of melon and scooped out fruit for yourself, and to share with your bunny on another day)

The halved cantaloupe will be your serving bowl. (Bunnies can eat the skin and small amount of fruit left inside after scraping out the melon.)

Rinse greens and leave damp.

Tear or chop all greens and arrange in the cantaloupe bowl.

Serve to your bunny chilled.

Bun Appétit!

I hope you have a garden growing this summer, one full of delicious vegetables and greens to share with your bunnies. There’s nothing like freshly picked organic produce. For those without a green thumb, farmers markets are a great place to get bunny greens. If you ask the vendors, you may even get a few handfuls of carrot tops to take home for your bunnies at no charge!

There are many flowers and herbs you can grow that your bunny will enjoy along with their mixed greens. Nasturtiums, rose petals, chamomile, pansies, violets, basil, dill, mint, cilantro, parsley, lavender, clover, and lemon balm are some that you may want to offer to your bunny.

Make sure that all of your greens, veggies, and herbs are organically grown for your bunny. Flowers and herbs are easy to dry and save for enjoying during winter months. Dried herbs and flowers can be added to salad greens for your bunny, sprinkled over hay for a special treat, or stuffed into our new Funny Bunny Toy called the Willow Stuffer.

The Willow Stuffer is a willow ball with a 1-1/4” opening so you can stuff it with snacks for your bunny. You can fill the Willow Stuffer with hay, fresh or dried herbs, or chopped veggies. Willow Stuffers are also a great toss and chew toy without any stuffing! Below are links to our Willow Stuffers, which are sold as singles or in a 3-pack. Willow Stuffers measure approx. 2-1/2” – 2-3/4”.
