Can rabbits have one as a treat daily?

Those have grain in them right? I would stay away from them personally, grains should be avoided with rabbits. I would stick to an occasional craisin, a bit of banana, or some herbs (parsley, cilantro, mint, basil, etc.) for treats and stay away from packaged foods altogether, then you don't have to worry as long as the vegetable or fruit itself is safe to feed. Here's a list of safe and unsafe veggies and fruits as well as other foods to avoid, grains are listed under veggies to avoid, and refined sugars are on the do not feed list as well, which I'm assuming gerber puffs have: https://binkybunny.com/BUNNYINFO/Diet/VeggieList/tabid/144/Default.aspx .

I found that bunny list AMAZING.  I went shopping Friday morning at like 4 am (well, we finished around 4) and I got several things on that list for Leo to try.  Might I just say that he about came out of his skin with joy over the Rosemary and Mint.  I thought he was going to ravish my hand.  He's never eaten anything out of my hands before.  BIG  :thumbsup2: to trying rosemary and mint!

Mine love fresh herbs but anything other than parsley and cilantro is crazy expensive around here. I'll be growing a bunch of herbs this summer though.
