Question Chewing

Once in a while, Smudge chews on the edges of my dressor and he likes to chew on the NIC panels Ive used to bunny-proof my room. I cant imagine that the paint on it is very good for him, so I was wondering what I could put on it so he would stop. Ive heard of the "Fooey" (sp?) stuff, but I dont want to spray anything strong in my room, since I sleep there and Smudge and Wink have sensitive eyes.


He has tons and tons of toys, hay, and other things to chew on but apparently my dressor and NIC panels are much better. Next time I go to the pet store, I might get him some new toys to keep him busy.

I think you can take a bar of soap (Ivory I think) and sub it on the places where he is chewing. I am not certain though.

Ive never heard of that, but I think I would rather use some thing more natural... Like maybe a bad tasting fruit juice (Is lemon safe?) or something like that.


Andy other suggestions?

our rabbit chews the NIC cubes sometimes too. not really sure what to do about it. As for your dresser. you could maybe try putting foil on it? not sure if that would work, and you'd have to watch to make sure he doesn't eat the foil, but maybe the different texture would turn him off? but then again he might like it too and that would be bad! lol. Or maybe try to put something he can chew in front of it? Our rabbit naughty habit is she has a thing for plastic grocery bags, I've been trying not to get them as much anymore, and the ones we get we keep in the pantry so we can use them for trash bags, so i have no idea where she finds them sometimes, but she goes crazy for them. Naughty little buns

LOL! Smudge chews the paper bags I use for cleaning but hes not too interested in the plastic ones!
I looked behind my dressor where the NIC cubes are, and all of them except for ONE has been chewed on! I wonder what its secret is? It doesnt have a single bite mark on it, but the rest are practicly chewed to death.
And I have a feeling Smudge would just eat the foil. He will devour anything he can get his teeth on.


Has anyone seen Dragonrain? I know she knows some ways to keeps buns from chewing.

Wish I could make a suggestion but I'm having the same problem. My bun has always been a chewer!

Smudge isnt too horribly bad, but I just dont want him getting sick.
