Freedom from hunger and thirst

All rabbits must have access to clean water and a well-balanced, nutritious diet. Freedom from hunger and thirst provides a rabbit’s most basic needs by allowing that rabbit to remain in good health and full of energy.


Did you know that there is a special law protecting animals?

It says that your animal has five groups of welfare needs. These are five groups of things that animals need to be healthy and happy. These five groups of welfare needs are called the Five Freedoms. 

Under the Animal Welfare Act all animal guardians (owners) need to provide all these things for their animals. One of these Five Freedoms is: Freedom from Hunger and Thirst. In this section you will learn about this freedom and how you can make sure your rabbits have the right diet so they are always free from hunger and thirst.
