Hello

i'm not exactly sure of the specifics on rabbits and wood- but when i brought my rabbit to an emergency vet once she told me i shouldn't give my rabbits the colored chew sticks and stuff b/c of the dyes in them. i don't know if she was correct when saying that though. she told me its better to give rabbits cardboard tubes and stuff like that to chew instead.

i don't know if this is any help at all- and i dont even know if what that vet said was true- but i find that my bunnies prefer to chew on cardboard things anyway.

Rabbits can have Apple wood, Willow, Maple, Lilac, Orange, Lemon and dethorned Rose Canes. Stay away from Cedar, Peach and Apricot. I wash my wood, cut it in pieces and freeze it to keep it fresh. Freezing it also kills any bugs that might be on the wood.

For mor information on the importance chewing and dental care, try this site: (www.mybunny.org/info/dental_care.htm)

Weeping willow is just fine. It is among the wood that is most recommended.

There is a lot of information out there on wood, but I think most of it is just someone's opinion, it gets posted somewhere, and then everyone gets on the bandwagon. I have read that Plum wood is toxic to rabbits, but I gave it to my rabbits for over a year on a weekly basis until I read it is toxic, and they didn't have any problems with it. I haven't seen any of what I would call "real research" on this subject.

I can only guess that any willow and willow leaves are alright, since apple and willow are the woods I have seen most recomended.

I have read that with fruit wood, if you dry the wood out for 30 days, the cyanide contents of the wood will disappear. Apple wood doesn't need to be dried.
