I know parsley is a natural diuretic. I have noticed for some time that if I give Abbey and Zoe parsley there is an increase in urine output. They don't get a lot of parsley so I have no concerns. Has anyone else noticed this? Should people that give parsley frequently be concerned about the diuretic action of parsley?
 
I doubt it.
 
No. It's actually recommended for rabbits with stones for the diuretic properties despite the higher calcium content. I can't image extra emptying of the bladder being a negative thing.

I thought the same thing. I just introduced gidget to parsley and cliantro and she chowed down. how much should I give her though
