    Does anybody's rabbit eat chocoloate????? :001_tt2:

    I have a sweetie tub which i keep on the coffee table in the middle of our living room and Stan keeps going mad to try and get things out of it! Hes not so keen on sweets and just sniffs them for a bit and eats the wrappers but as soon as he sees/smells the chocolate he is like a little kid!! He tries to eat and eat it and i have to fight to get it off him! lol

    He has eaten bits of it but not alot as i know this cant be good for him but does anybody else's rabbit eat any chocolate? Is it really very bad for them? I have read before that some rabbits nibble on a chocolate!

    Oh and the other night i was sat eating an ice lolly and he jumped up and tried to help me eat that too!! :D

    Yeah thats true but we're always paranoid because its so bad for the animals we try not to leave any lying around because Buster especially would steal it the second it was dropped.

    You can buy a small animal version of choc drops for small pets which may be better if your worried it may be safer than human chocolate. LOL

    Chocolate is not just bad for them it is potentially poisonous and can kill them.
    I know though that animals do not take this into account as my dog is a nightmare where chocolate is concerned and we have to be extremely careful what we leave laying around.
    The choccy drops for pets are not actually chocolate at all and although very high in sugar as the very occassional treat they would be ok.
