Exclamation my bunny just ate a balloon! - October 14th 2009, 03:07 AM

i didnt notice that there was a bit of a deflated balloon on my floor when i went to open my bunnies cage. it was one of those long balloons that are used for twisting balloon animals.
anyway, i guess that one of my bunnies thought that it was a carrot because she ate it! she probably ate about 2 or 2.5 centimeters. is she going to be okay???? i hope so.

I think she'll be fine, bunnies likes to eat just about anything
they can find, but I would assure you to keep an eye on it, I wouldn't
overfeed her though and just basically take care of it. Good luck! :]

Edit: Annddd what everyone else said, I would take her to
see the vet just in case if she starts have difficulty breathing..

There is only one person who could ever
make you happy, and that person is you.

Unless shes coughing or wheezing, or struggling to breathe, I should think so if in doubt I'd take her for a quick check up though

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

Take her to the vet just to be sure, or if you can't get in soon, call and ask them what they want you to do, and make sure she has water available (Obviously) and make sure she has some pinnapple, it helps to uhm.... 'move things along' and out of her body but make sure you dont give her too much or she might get sick.
Hope everything works out!
Take care!

Check to make sure your bunny can breath alright and then try to get to a vet as soon as possible. My dog once at a balloon and he was fine but we took him to the vet and they said to keep checking on him as the balloon could twist his stomach. I'm not sure how easily rabbit's stomachs can twist but it'd be better not to take the risk.

Id say ring your local vet and ask for advice. They will know what to do and will tell you whether you should bring your bunny in for a check up or further treatment.

If I were you I would definatly get to a vet, just to be sure. Dont panic, but dont forget about what she swallowed.
