How can I stop my rabbit from chewing cords?
My rabbit, Oreo, is 1.5 years old. He's real cute. But he's such an ***. He chews in EVERYTHING. I know rabbits can't abet it. I give him chew toys, but he couldn't care less for them. I buy him the little snack boxes that he have to chew through. His house is wood...I let him out of the cage quite commonly, but he's starting to spend more time IN the cage because he's into everything. I love him & I care for him. I don't want to give him absent, but I'm going nuts. I've had to replace my phone about 5x. He chews the cords that can not be replaced. He chewed the vacuum cord. He chews clothes, shoes, belts, the carpet, the wood kitchen table. He's even chewed the porthole sill. He's also chewed the bottom of my bed. Like, IN my bed! What do I do?
there's a spray you can use that repels animals from things you don't want it to mess up. go to your pet store and you should find it there
http://sewelldirect.com/Critter-Cord.asp and things similar to your vacuum need to be put away, like surrounded by a closet behind a closed door. Clothes, shoes, belts all in the closet. You can try aroma deterrents on furniture items. I like Fooey- I find things like bitter apple spray most rabbits actually resembling. You can also try hot sauce if the Fooey doesn't work.

i don't know how much help this might be but they enjoy cord covers that might help i believe they have ones that are a material he couldn't chew through.
Yeah.. run to the pet store and get bitter apple spray.. Spray that all over the cords.. The rabbit will stay away from it. Tastes really impossible.
You could try Bitter Apple. Most all pet store carry it and it has be around for ages. Spray it on what ever you don't want him to chew.
We have a puppy and some stuff I need to be sure is up and out of chew zone. Munching and chewing are liberal of a rabbits "thing". Try to put things he can chew around him.
My friend got her small dog a baby's gate that formed an octagon. The animal had room to play, but wasn't adjectives over the place.
find an toy an distract it
preserve it in a cage, i was in a state when my rabbit died from chewing a cord
oh. i had a bunny. =) she was exquisite <3. haha she would chew on cords alot and my dad would get really mad. but like after 2 days or something she stopped. =)) (haha thats roxy for you) bunnies love to chew on things. so what i would do inm ur situation is close to get a stick from the backyard (not a twig) and put it next to his mouth. he will start chewing on that more. and if you put some within his cage then that could help too. I wouldnt hold on to on buying chew toys...to be honest they really dont care for them. (i NEVER bought roxy a chew toy =] ) and if your bunny is ever bored then approaching get a MEDIUM size teddy bear and put it on his put a bet on for a few seconds. after that put it infront of his face and he will start playing with that. (the im better than you play ;] )
