My bunny ate a small amount of gum.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your bunny will be able to digest that. What is the bunny's name and age?

I think she will be okay. She's eaten a lot worse, like she ate a leather shoe earlier this week.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your bunny?

Shes 11 months old and her name is Dot

Sugar free super small amount. It was a tiny circular kind. She ate it five minutes ago and she's 5 pounds. She seems okay at the moment she doing binkies.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Thanks

If it contained Xylitol we would be a little more worried then other types of artificial sweeteners. But rabbits are actually quite tolerant of even that

I am not worried at this point

The gum should pass no problem

I hope that helps!

Okay?

That is the first ingredient. She only did get a few bites though. Should I have her eat a large amount of hay or pineapple to help?
The first one is the bit she had, the second is one I cut in half and the third is a full peice.

Just continue to feed as per usual :)

Update me tonight

Thanks for pics :)
