Is lime peels bad for rabbits ? Because my bun definitely ate some lime peels. This morning I let Corrie out before I went to online school, but little did I know there was a lime on the flood, as a curious bun Corrie is she nibbled/ate the lime peel, it seems like she didn't really like it, so she didn't go back to eat more (thankfully). Is there any ways to see if she is poisoned, what should I do ?

She will probably be just fine. Citrus fruit peel like lime, is often used in human food to add flavor, therefore is non toxic.

Lime peel won't hurt your bunny. I occasionally feed lemon (find and all) to mine, though only 2/4 like it.

When doing a google search, I find claims that lime peel is toxic to rabbits. What I don't find is evidence that any rabbit has ever gotten sick from eating it. I think that this is one of those things where someone has a theory and puts it out there, and then it gets spread around on the internet as fact.
