Can i give my rabbit fresh fruit?

I LOVE making salads for my rabbit. I was just about to make him one, when i remembered we have some very fresh strawberries in the fridge.

I know Rabbits enjoys lettuce and carrots, but can i add strawberries and tomatoes to his salad?

Thanks much
Answers:
Yes, you can give them fruits, but too much will give them diarrhea, so only a little at a time. I don't know about tomatoes, they might be too acidic. Not sure.
yes and dont give him/her iceburg lettuce its bad 4 them and has no nutritious value
I don't see any problem with that. The only thing that I would suggest is to avoid iceburg lettuce. Go with the greener stuff. Icerberg lettuce offers no nutritional value to the rabbit and can cause diarrhea. My vet told me this when I owned rabbits.
Yes, but in small quantities (fruit is like treats to rabbits, too much will cause a belly ache and loose stool/diarrhea!)

You can give 1-2 tablespoons of the following fruits:
Apple
Banana
Blueberry
Cranberry
Grape
Melon
Papaya
Peach
Pear
Plum
Pineapple
Pumpkin
Raisin
Raspberry
Strawberries

Note: although fresh is best, in most cases you can also get frozen or dried versions of these fruits; if dried, please check the ingredients and make sure they are not sweetened with sugar, corn syrup, etc.

Update: All rabbits enjoy lettuce and carrots, but lease be careful!! Iceberg lettuce (and any light green lettuce leaves, may cause diahrrea) - can be gven in small amounts or when you have no other greens to offer, but watch the output for soft stools). And carrots have a very HIGH sugar content, so feed in small quantities!!

Hope this helps!!
yes...they love strawberrys
Yes you can, but not too much. Rabbits have a sweet touth and are unfortunately prone to gaining weight. The amount you can give depends on how much your bunny weighs and recommend not giving fruit (or carrots, or tomatoes) every day.
We do give ours less than 1/2 tsp of fruit every day as a way to get them back to their room. It is also a good indicator of health. If they ignore their treat, I'll know something is wrong. Here are some links about diet:

yes you can give your rabbit strawberries and grapes as a snack. They really enjoy things like that.
ERM... I DUNO BT I GIVE MY RABBIT FRESH APPLE, U SHOULD GIVE THEM 2 MUCH VEG/SALAD AS THERE STOMACH CNT TAKE IT
you can give your rabbit anything except onions, and dried fruit b/c you have to worry about the added sugar. I would give just a few tomatoes, because you do not want to cause diarrea, this is the only thing that you have to worry about. I had a pet rabbit for years and I gave him everything from jalepenos to bell peppers to mango to peaches, rose petels, any flowers really, peaches, apples, etc. I was told to stay away from iceburg lettuce because of the water content, but the other leafy lettuce is great. Others things I fed "Todd" was parsley, cilantro, broccli, just keep an eye on his poop, you don't want it to soft, this means he is having too much water content in his food, but NO ONION OR DRIED FRUIT!! Just fresh stuff
Not too much. My sister did and she killed her rabbit since it all fermented and it was too much for him. The idiot didn't even read a book or go on the internet first.

Call a vet if you have any questions!
Yeah, you can. Avoid citrus fruits as rodents can't handle citric acid.
you can give half a table spoons of the following fruits:
appple
banana
carrot
blue berry
cranberry
grape
melon
papaya
peach
pear
plum
pine apple
pumpkin
raisians
raspberry
strawberry
I gave you these fruits because they are nutrtion
I am not sure about the items you listed but here is what my rabbit enjoys eating:spring mix salad, peanuts she eats the shell to help keep her teeth filed down, she doesn't eat the peanut, she LOVES dehyrated apples. I just slice them and put them on plate to dry out it usually takes about 1 day. You can also put them in the oven but I just let them dry naturally. Carrot with and without tops.
Fruits should be fed in moderation, as well as some vegetables.

::Applause:: for giving your rabbit fresh foods, and not just pellets. Be sure the lettuce you are using is not iceburg(no nutrients) and feed carrots is small amounts(high in sugar). There are many different veggies that can be offered in a "salad" I mix up my rabbit three different veggies per day, every day. Rabbits need a minimum of three a day for adaquate nutrition(5 is even better).

When feeding veggies watch for calcium content, as too much can cause health issues. You can find lists of calcium content online.
yes they will love it but let it get a little warm don't give it to the straight from the fridge
Don't give your rabbit too much fruit and vegetables and it will upset his bowels. My rabbit liked straberries but I never gave her tomatoes. They contain citrus acid like oranges and lemons so I probably wouldn't. Try just giving him one strawberry and then another few days like maybe a grape. Once a week a carrot.
yes. many fruits are enjoyable. i would stick to berries, bananas, apples, nectarines, peaches, etc. citrus fruits aren't such a good idea. i believe tomato seads are actually poisonus, i could be wrong. all of these including carrots should be fed no more than once a day as they have a lot of sugar. greens are better, cucumber, lettuce, etc. but many are poisonus so be careful!
Yes, you can.
Yes, you can. I feed my rabbit strawberries and she loves it! In moderation, of course! I'm not so sure about tomatoes, though.
