    I read some place it was OK for rabbits to eat yogurt chips. I can not find these. I did manage to find raisins covered with yogurt. I gave a few to William and he goes bonkers for them. I decided to not give him anymore until I checked here if they are OK for him. It's just that he loved them so much and I thought - hmmm - these taste too good for him - they mustn't be good. :rolleyes5: If they are OK for him to eat - how many would be safe for him to eat a day?
    Many thanks,
    Jacqui

    Are they made for rabbits?

    Or are they literally just raisins in yoghurt?

    Personally i would not give them anyway, especially if the second, as adult rabbits are meant to be "Lactose intolerant"

    oh no. i used to give bodger a bit of yogurt on my finger, he loved the strawberry, im so lucky i never made him ill.

    i think the hamster treat yogurt drops are ok, iv given mine some, i dont think its proper yogurt they use in them anyway, same as with the animal chocolate.

    mine get rasins quite often, i use either rasins/dried apricotes as a distraction when i need to get at their hay rack/food bowl when they are in their hutches, otherwise they try to escape. iv also put some medicines on a rasin before, hope i havnt caused any harm!!

    Evaluate diet:

    Free feed fresh grass hay
    Limited timothy pellets (1/4) cup per 5lbs. of bunny per day [split portion between morning and night] for adult rabbits, baby rabbits (under 1 yr) get free fed alfalfa pellets)
    Fresh green leafy vegetables (for rabbits over 6 months of age)
    Limited treats such as fruit. No bread products. No yogurt or yogurt drops.

    Boy, I am glad I asked now.:blushing: I definitely did read that on a forum that someone gave their rabbit yogurt chips. He'll be having no more of those then! Thanks.
