Which plants are poisonous for rabbits?Rabbits are inquisitive. They like to chew things and sample different plants and vegetation. In the wild they would learn which plants were safe to eat from their elders. However in captivity they do not have this advantage, so will often eat things that they shouldn’t. Some toxic plants, like ragwort, taste sour and hopefully dissuades rabbits from eating them. Other plants do not have an off-putting taste, so curious or bored rabbits may eat them if they find them. Our list of safe plants for rabbits can be found at the bottom of this article.This article was written by a FirstVet vetDid you know that FirstVet offers video calls with experienced, UK registered vets?
