Cucumbers?

What about cucumbers? I read guinea pigs can have them - is that true and can buns have them?

I think they are okay! However I am not a bun owner,so wait until someone else comes.

But my rats and mice can have them no problem.I don't feed them it in excess,but as a treat and they seem to really enjoy it,as does my millipede!

Small amounts of cucumber will not hurt your rabbit, however, it should only be given as a treat. Cucumber contains a lot of moisture, and should be grouped with iceberg lettuce as a "wet vegetable". Buns and other small animal should not eat large amounts of these wet vegetables, as they can cause diarrhea.

Thanks guys. It makes sense that they would be a wet veggie. I am always looking for new things to give them but I want to be sure that it cannot hurt them.

Smile iceberg lettuce

I just gave my bunny some cucumber and he went wild

I don't know yet how his poo will react but I would guess this will be his favorite treat

I was told and read that iceberg lettuce is not good for rabbits, feed them ROMAIN lettuce.

Iceberg lettuce is not really good for any animal...it has no nutritional value.
