Concrete chewing

I have a 5 month old indoor bunny who goes in the backyard sometimes. Sometime he chomps or chews on the edges of concrete blocks or bricks.. is this bad for him? He chews lots of cardboard and i give him wooden and fabric chew toys but so far he's not really interested in them. Is nipping at the bricks or concrete going to hurt his teeth? I'd take the bricks away but he really loves to scratch his chin on them.

As you now bunnies chew everything!! Not everything they chew is harmful but i really can't see concrete being too good for his teeth.Try to distract him with something safe t chew while in the backyard like untreated wood.

When I first got Hoppity he keep wanting to chew on the bricks at the corner of the house when he went outside. I donít know if he grew out of it or just got tired of me shooing and moving him away from the corner.
Good Luck

this makes me cringe! lol. I suppose that doesnt sound too healthy.. my bunny henry steals wine corks from this big crock on our floor (we like wine) and tries to chew them. I always catch him though. He is not sneaky.

I would be worried about him chipping his teeth.


LOL, Smudge doesnt chew as much... He would much rather attack the newspaper! He yanks it out of the basket, bites it, and bats at it like a cat!

If it were one of my rabbits I'd take the concrete away. I'd too would worry about him damaging his teeth on them.

That poor baby. The only thing turbo chews that he probably shouldn't would be my watch ... it seems to be his favorite thing to chew.

Try giving him something safe but hard or textured to chew, or scrub down whatever he is chewing coz there may be a scent there and thats why he keeps going back

lol marmalade the wine corks reminds me of the other day finding out that Holly likes wine. No, I didn't give him a glass of it or anything, but there was an empty wine bottle on the floor and he was licking the open neck. I started pulling it away from him and he followed, sticking his mouth right in it, and then started licking at my finger after I ran it through the inside of the bottle. The bottle's been taken away now.

lol! I have a picture of Holly up on his hind legs investigating a couple of empty bottles of midori. I joke about him being a lush - and only nine weeks old! D:
