Can Rabbits Eat Apple Cores?

Can Rabbits Eat Apple Cores?

As you can imagine the apple cores are the center section of apples. This is where the branch of the apple tree connects to and where the flesh grows from.

This is the part that humans tend to cut or eat around and throw away as it doesn’t taste very good and is difficult to eat.

The apple core contains seeds which most people are not fond of eating.

So can rabbits eat apple cores?

No, they cannot eat the core as apple seeds are poisonous to rabbits.

The seeds of an apple contain amygdalin, which is actually converted to cyanide when the seed is crushed or chewed.

In high doses cyanide can be highly poisonous and possibly kill a rabbit

It is important to stick to only giving rabbits the flesh of the apple and nothing else.
