Top 4 Chew Toys for Rabbits around $5

peters woven play ballYou don’t know how funny it is watching bunnies when they play, run around, chase a toy ball or chew on it.  Rabbits are very playful and exploratory, and they need to live out their playful side and drive to explore in order to stay mentally and physically healthy and happy.

Chew toys are perfect for rabbits because they come in a big variety of material to chew on.  Rabbits are curious animals.  So, they need to find out what the things are they encounter, and they want to find it out by chewing it.  It’s their instinct.

Since the available chew toys are so incredibly affordable you can easily purchase several and rotate them every day.  This keeps your rabbit busy and curious.

Another great advantage of offering your little bunny some chew toys is that they actually manage it to have a workout with it as well as teeth cleaning and wearing.  Rabbits have infinite ways to play with a toy.  They toss it, dig in it with their front legs, chew it, fling it away and even growl at it. If the toy has even a little bell inside like the play ball from Peters some rabbits will go crazy for it.

It is important that you observe your rabbit while playing and chewing to make sure that everything is alright with your little guy.  Once you give your pet rabbits enough attention and playful distraction they will be very content to rest and relax in their places afterwards.  And a nice side effect of letting your bunny play with chew toys is that you keep them successfully away from chewing at your furniture, rug or even your fingers.

While you may actually use many items that you have already in your household as rabbit toy you should be careful by just getting wood branches or twigs from your backyard.  The branches need to be pesticide-free and aged.  Therefore, the best way to go is to purchase one of the many available chew toys where you can be sure that they are healthy and not poisonous.

Believe me, he (the chinchilla) demolished it in a single night.  Also, it is so unbelievably cute because he’d travel around the cage with it in he’s mouth like a dog.

My bun loves these chew toys.  He likes to roll them around in his pen followed by a little chewing.

My rabbit loves it, and she plays with it all the time.

The mice are now on the third of the balls, and they’re chewing through that one very fast too.  These are definitely a favorite with them.

Bunneh has already eaten one and has a gaping hole in the other.  He doesn’t like the jingle ball inside it so he just destroys them faster.

I liked how big these are and my chins loved them.
