It's advised not to feed it. It's got quite a high sugar content, and can cause gut stasis...

It was one of Bojangles favourites as well but it was not the reason why our bunny died. I never had gut problems with him having it :) was I lucky then :?:

What is the sugar content in them then :?: I would have thought apple was higher than baby sweet corn :?:

Same here, Bo would not eat fruit, nor carrot actually there was alot he would'nt eat :roll: He did like occassionally a peice of dried banana but loved his baby sweetcorn, he adored dandilion leaves, rose and raspberry leaves, abit of cabbage, he was a bit of a fussy eater except for the garden that is :D Pansy's were a big favourite as well :D

All fruit has very high sugar content, and should only be given in small amounts...

Corn and potatoes are both on the "don't feed" list due to risk of impaction, etc. And the high sugar content in sweet corn especially...
