Answer . When I am preparing fresh collard greens to be cooked, I put them in a sink filled with salt water. I swish them about, then let them soak in the salty water for 15 to 30 minutes.

After the salt water rinse and plain water rinse, I finish preparing the collards for cooking, then get on with the cooking..

if a rabbit eats collard greens, it would probably have to same effect as eating cabbage. Collard greens are crucifers , meaning they're part of the cabbage family. Cruciferous vegetables are known to cause gas in rabbits , which can actually be very serious and lead to deathly illness (GI Stasis…). Some rabbits are fine to eat crucifers in moderation, but other rabbits are very sensitive to them and get gas even from eating a small amount. The key is to observe your rabbit and understand her (or his) individual responses to foods. Never give a rabbit lots of crucifers in one day: so, if you give a bit of collard greens, don't also give cabbage. Here is an incomplete list of some cruciferous greens: horseradish, cress, mustard greens, kale, collar greens, Chinese broccoli, cabbages, Brussels sprout, kohlrabi greens, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, rapini (broccoli rabe), turnip greens, rutabaga greens, arugula (rocket), radish greens, daikon greens. If you notice signs of gas in your rabbit, you should administer first aid treatment and if it doesn't go away within a few hours, you should bring your rabbit to a vet. The longer the gas goes untreated, the higher chance of GI Stasis. See the related questions below for details and links. Signs of Gas . Pressing the belly flat against the floor in an awkward position, or curling up into a crunched-up position . Grinding teeth - this is crunchier and louder sounding than the gentle "tooth purr" . Lack of interest in eating, playing, or snuggling when normally at that time of day he (or she) would want those things . Swollen, hard belly . Loud stomach noises (it's a good idea to have a stethoscope in your first aid kit) First Aid for Gas . Belly massage - be gentle, and if the rabbit struggles let him go for now, but press firmly into the stomach to try to break up the gas bubbles; rubbing in circles can help, or rippling your fingers along the stomach; try to work the gas toward the anus . Simethicone in liquid suspension (often a baby pharmaceutical product) - the standard dose is 20mg of drug, but larger rabbits might need larger doses. Make sure you know the mg:mL ratio, because it's not the same in all brands. For instance, if your bottle says 40mg/mL, then the dose is 0.5mL. Note that 1mL equals 1cc. Give one dose every hour for the 3 hours, and then once every 3 hours as needed. . Try to encourage the rabbit to keep drinking water, because dehydration will make the problem worse . Try to encourage the rabbit to keep moving around, because exercise can help break up the gas bubbles ( Full Answer )
