What kind of drinking bowl to make for rabbits yourself?

Rabbit drinkers are an important element in their diet. There are several types, some of them can be easily built on your own, some are more complicated and more expensive. The article covers various options with detailed instructions.

Features and requirements

When manufacturing, you need to take into account the nuances:

  • Animal safety. The bowls should not have stabbing and cutting elements, sharp corners, so that the animal does not get scratched. Tin cans are not suitable (or you need to process them so that there are no teeth).
  • Clean water. The quality of the liquid is important for the well-being of rabbits. It should not be dirty, debris and grass are excluded.
  • Simplicity and comfort. The drinking bowl should be easy for the rabbit to use. Make sure the animal can reach the water.
  • Avoid rollover. Animals are very mobile, so the device is securely attached to the cage or to the floor.


Plastic, metal or stainless steel are suitable for the production of drinking bowls. You can use a plastic bottle with a cap. Metal troughs will do.


Calculated from the amount of water the rabbits need. Depending on the number of pets, make a series of identical devices. The calculation for one animal is one and a half liters of daily moisture.

To make this toy, you will need the following materials and tools: - Paper for making a sample (paper from ordinary notebooks will do); - Marker, pencil; - Ruler, eraser; - Filler (cotton wool) and tweezers; - Fabric with light brown fur; - White fleecy fabric; - Beige fabric (leather is suitable); - Scissors, needle; - Threads of white or light brown color; - Needles for stabbing; - Toy eyes; - Squeaky.
