    I would not use anything like this on any of my rabbits and personally think it's unnecessary. I would also not want them to ingest the chemical that the wipes are impregnated with.

    In my experience, rabbits clean themselves and their bonded partners very well with their tongues

    Thank you Omi that’s the reason that we’ve not used them already in the last 2 years so I’ll stick with that mentality

    Good decision I'm sure companies try to convince us we need lots of things, which in my view are completely unnecessary. There's also a cost to the environment with these wipes.

    I agree with Omi, I wouldn't use wipes on bunnies. The only time you would need to clean them would be if they got a messy bottom. Even then I only use a flannel with warm water, no soap or other cleaning products added.

    Yea I agree

    I have used water wipes before once when Clementine couldn't move, managed to avoid urine scold.. Although I was cleaning her with them every two hours 24h hours a day never had any issues, although Idk if this was a good thing or a bad tbh, this was when I first got them and I didn't know much and I didn't even know about urine scold lucky I thought yea that can't be nice and cleaned her up all the time, seems like we avoided something nasty. So basically I don't know if they're safe or not, but I used them without any problems for about 2 months.
