What does a pet rabbit eat?

What different food does a rabbit need every day? Does it differ between breeds?

They should have free access to hay, and then a certain amount of pellets depending on season, age, activity, size etc. You can give different vegetables/fruits, but it's not necessary, and you should not give too much as they can be quite sensitive. Leafy vegetables are good though, you can give alot of that, with a few exceptions. Never do any quick changes in their diet and introduce new food slowly, even if it's something healthy and good for rabbits.

Okay. What are pellets made of? Are they for vitamins and minerals?

#2 It's mainly for vitamins and minerals, yes, but I'm not sure what they are made of exactly. I don't have much knowledge of the subject tbh, but I'm guessing the ingredients can differ widely between brands. I will do a lot more research if I ever decide to get new rabbits. (Haven't had any for years).
