        In the night, I give my rabbit a few pellets so he was hyper for food. I was moving stuff around and a bar of soap fell and he ate a chunk of it 🙁

        This was ten minutes ago. I gave him critical care and hay and he ate it and for now is acting normal for now.

        It’s 1 am and I have jury duty this morning and no vets locally are open yet.
        He is 3.5 lbs and 5 years old

        Has your rabbit ever eaten something like this?

        I’m going to take him to the vet when I come back

        Should I be worried?

          Normal hand soap isn’t toxic, so I think your bun will be fine. Soap is very fatty though, so he could get a stomach upset and have weird poop for a while. Rabbits can’t swallow big chunks of stuff, they chew everything meticulously (and that’s a good thing). He must’ve found the taste appealing.

          Try to keep him well hydrated by offering wet greens. Obviously monitor him with regards to appetite and poop over the next few days.

              Thank you so much for replying, your comment is making me feel a bit better. It’s been 4 hours and he is still acting normal and pooping normally, thankfully. I’ll take your advice and continue monitoring him. Thank you so much, really really thank you!!
