      Hi everyone! 🙂

      I hope I’m posting this in the right place! I’m a new bun mom and was wondering if the Arm & Hammer Pet Scentsations Lavender Fields Electric Oil Diffuser is safe for bunnies. If not, do you guys have any recommendations of any bunny safe air fresheners?

      I don’t know for sure, but several essential oils are not safe to diffuse around cats or rabbits (including lavender), so I wouldn’t use it. The general advice is not to use air fresheners or oil diffusers around rabbits.

      That is not safe. Typically you aren’t supposed to use air fresheners by rabbits. Is there a reason you want to? The best option would be for it to be organic but I still wouldn’t recommend it.

        Thank you! 😁 I wanted to use something to cover up the pee smell (it doesn’t really bother me but my mom doesn’t like it) but I’ve seen several videos saying that an air purifier helps! Might invest in one of those.

        An air purifier should help, that is a great idea. Some of them can be costly, so if you don’t want to spend that much I would look on facebook marketplace or craigslist.

      Most essential oils are not considered safe to use around cats or rabbits.

      Is your bun spayed/neutered? Usually that helps a lot with pee smell!

      I’ve also found that pine pellet litter works great for odor control, and is very economical if you buy it in large bags. I’ve also noticed a huge reduction in pee odor once I switched my buns to a higher quality pellet food.

        He’s only 2 months so he’s not neutered yet.

        I’ll definitely try out the pine pellet litter! I’ve been using CareFresh & been transitioning him to Oxbow Young Rabbit Pellets for his food. I’m not sure what brand his old food is though, so that may be why!

        Thank you for the advice! 😁

      Oh he’s just a baby!

      Puberty definitely makes buns super stinky, so things should def calm down once he’s ore grown up and neutered!

      Yeah, Carefresh is not very good for odor control. Pine pellet litter like Feline Pine or (cheaper) horse stall pine pellets are much better at controlling odor. The pine pellets are safe because they are kiln dried.
