Can rabbits have raisins?

I seem to recall someone mentioning that raisins are a good bunny treat. Are these healthy for them, or should they be used sparingly?

I tried googling for an answer to this, but when I search for "rabbit" and "raisins", two of the entries on the first page were recipes for cooking rabbits with raisins!!! This is why I'm a vegetarian - some of my best friends are animals.

Yeah, i don't like searching for rabbit info because of that, especially rabbit food related questions.. there should be warnings or something on those pages! bleh!

I give my rabbit raisins when we have them, not very often tho, i don't know if there really considered healthy or not, i only give her 2-3 a day, when we have them that is, so its not very often.

Well, since I DON'T have a rabbit, I searched the web about it. The things I found said it was ok to give them raisins sparingly, as treats.

Also, if you want to search about foods for rabbits, it helps if you put the word "eat" in the search bar. That way it pops up with entries like "can rabbits eat raisins?" rather than "rabbit/raisin stew".

Raisins are pretty high in sugar so it's best to feed them very sparingly . I give them to my rabbits occasionally but they actually seem to prefer banana chips treat-wise.

Reviving my own old thread from two years ago (been a while since I checked in here), Flash had a tummy ache and had to go to the vet last night. The vet told me not to give him raisins any more.

How many did you give him?
Ive heard of rabbits going into stasis and dying from having an over load of raisens, but a raisen or 2 occasionally shouldnt hurt them. I prefer papya treats though.

I used to give him 3 or 4 raisins at a time, maybe 2-4 times per week. I don't know if it actually contributed to his stomach ache, but I'm not taking any chances. No more raisins for him.

I'll have to look into the papaya treats.

I did hear that raisins are deadly for dogs (in case you have any dogs)

I was told NO raisins, that's what cause my rabbit's GI problems -too high in sugar.
Limited pellets, unlimited hay,grass and clover.
