Cactus Pads and Rabbits

Postby contessa20 » Tue Nov 27, 2012 5:32 pm

Would it be okay to feed my rabbit de-spined cactus pads? Whenever I'm making salads for the Bearded Dragon and Russian Tortoise I always include cactus pad. Since I make their salads at the same time, I've wondered if it would be okay to put a bit in her salad or if there is some reason why it wouldn't be good for her to eat.

1 Leopard Gecko (Dobby)

One day I aspire to work with wolves.

Ugh, my a english lops are sneaky little cactus thieves. My big buck once jumped onto a small chair, jumped from there to a taller chair, and jumped from there onto my kichen table to gorge himself on a wide variety of cacti. We won't speak of the fate of my beautiful Christmas-tree-substitute cactus... I can not tell you if any species are healthy for rabbits, cause toxicity issues, or not. I can say that wild N. American rabbits have certainly been caught chomping on prickly pear and other cacti more than once. And you can add English lops to that list.
