Cabbage

Cabbage is not a huge favourite with many rabbits and guinea pigs and is another vegetable that is ‘blamed’ for being high in calcium in rabbits of guinea pigs with urinary gravel, grit or stones.

In fact cabbage contains only 35mg calcium and 42mg phosphorous per 100gm which means not only is the level of these minerals low, the Ca:P ratio is not that great either.

Cabbage provides 31mg vitamin C per 100gm.

Chinese Cabbage (Pak Choi) on the other hand contains 105mg calcium and 37mg phosphorous. It provides 45mg vitamin C per 100gm.

Red cabbage also has a good Ca:P ratio with 45mg calcium and 30mg phosphorous per 100gm and also provides 57mg per 100gm vitamin C.
