    Default Willow and Metacam

    Hi Guys
    I was not sure where to post this so forgive me if itís in the wrong place.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can find some concrete evidence on whether it is ok or not to feed rabbits willow when they are on Metacam.

    Some people say itís ok to feed a small amount others say absolutely not so it would be good to get some clarification.

    Many thanks in advance

    I feed mine willow and they are on metacam. I thought you'd have to feed a lot of willow to do any harm. Would be interested what people say.

    In my view the amount of salicin on a Willow leaf or stick is going to be minimal. I have a rabbit on daily Metacam and I certainly don't restrict her consumption of Willow.

    Yes I know what you mean.
    I was interested to hear other peoples opinions and see if we could find some evidence to prove disprove this
