Depends how much. Salt poisoning can occur, symptoms are mainly neuromuscular aswell as excessive drinking and weeing.

I;ve been trying to think of the symptoms we can get but I cant remember :?

high bp, water retention, sickness, diorreha and if to much is eaten long term, heart/kidney problems

I hoping not too much. Its my own fault as my head has been all over the place this afternoon :(

I left an empty packet of crisps on the shelf with the little salt bag inside. Valerie got up on the shelf and pulled it down. When I walked in she had it right in the back of her mouth. I managed to get it out but it was chewed to expose the salt, but there was still plenty inside :?

Hopefully she didn't take in to much salt then. The mischief house bunnies get into! :shock:

I would imagine she would be fine, she would have more from those silly salt licks pet shops sell which are "suitable for rabbits" :roll:
