Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if grape vine leaves are safe for bunnies? I've just pruned back my vines a little and would be a shame to waste them if the bunnies can have them.

Thanks in advance.

Several sources state that grapevines and leaves are safe for rabbits to eat, as long as there is no pesticide residue.


Note: I found conflicting info on grape SEEDS.



Here's one of our library links that has a lot of good info and links to "safe & toxic" lists;

Leaves and vines are safe, yes. However when it comes to the grapes or raisins themselves, you wont catch me bringing them anywhere near my rabbits.

Woohoo!! Thankyou both so much.

Definately not sprayed, nothing in my yard is sprayed.

Now would passionfruit vine be safe or not?

If you do an online search with plant name [preferably the scientific name] toxic rabbits, you should be able to find out.
