some kid on youtube :roll: i have told her, but all i got was "its doesnt harm them, its fine, i checked with people"

...i went on about the digestive system and stuff, not sure what i can do. why do people seem to lack any common sense when it comes to animals!!!!

I have heard before of people recommending them for buns with dental problems, to help wear their teeth down - def not something I would do though!

People have no sense *sigh*

If they are the original bonio biscuits theyre not as disastorous as may seem...
Composition:
Cereals (30% whole wheat), Derivatives of vegetable origin, Oils and fats, Minerals, Meat and animal derivatives.

Seems to be a very very low 'meat' content, likely more for flavour than anything. Still shouldnt be fed to herbivores though.

I know, i checked out the ingredients but its the meat and animal derivatives that gets me. I stopped feeding my piggies Burgess excel for the same reason.

Its not so bad for hamsters, they can have some meat in their diet. I used to feed my foster hammie gravy bones as a treat once a week. But bunnies and piggies arent designed to eat meat. x

my mum had a rabbit who used to eat Bonio's :shock: though the bunny was more dog than rabbit :lol:


Still not a clever thing to feed to a rabbit or piggie :?

Mine try and steal them and have had some, and my hammies have them weekly. I wouldn't recommend rabbits having them, but I think there's far worse they could be eating!
