It is important to provide your lionhead rabbit with a healthy diet. Main part of their diet should be hay and high quality pellets. You could also add leafy greens and other vegetables, fruits or certain plants. However, please keep in mind that not all of these are safe. For example, some plants that might grow in your own backyard can be very poisonous and in some cases even lethal for lionhead rabbits. The same goes for vegetables and fruits. For example, beans and eggplants can do serious harm to their digestive system.
