Is it okay to give your rabbits some 100% cranberry juice as flavoring in their water? If so, how much would I give? Both Ronnie and Skye love craisens and I know cranberry juice is good for humans, so I was wondering about it for rabbits.

It's a juice and juices usually have a lot of suger in them...which is not good for bunnies.

But I don't know.

Aina, yes, I believe it's just fine to add some to their water. Let me double check.

Okay, check out this link from our library. Cranberry is fine.

Muffin will come up to me if I'm drinking cranberry juice and try to sip out of my glass!! I gave her a little in a bowl so she wouldn't get her bunny tongue in my drink! It is sugary, so only give a little, but it is ok to give! I have her ~2tsp.

Thanks everyone. I think I'll give them a little tonight and see how they like it.

This is a very personal opinion...

I, myself, would not mess with their water unless they are ill and I need to get them to drink and am desperate to get them to do so. I would worry about them getting picky with their water and pout when it isnot a treat. The again my guys are pretty well-behaved now, but before... Sheesh, I had a hard time with Wiggles to get her to eat something if she had tasted better. Lol. I'm sure it is most likely alright every once in a while but I am just paranoid that way

Thanks for the concern, MsBinky. I hadn't thought of that.
Actually, I am doing this because someone, not sure who, had sludge in their pee the other day. It hasn't happened since. They both seem fine and the vet seemed clueless, so I am trying to make them drink more and follow some things I found on the net. Ronnie and Skye both seem to like to eat and drink anything, so I don't think I should have a problem with that.
