    I have a **edited by moderator** silicone rabbit vibrator that's hardly been used but the darn pet rat has had a bit of a nibble on it. Wondering if I can fill in the gaps with silicone? (Or, my first thought was to trim the rubber so the indents are smooth but near the base the rat nibbles are deep enough that they go through to the electronics inside).

    Personally I would discard it as it's a safety risk. It gives you an excuse for a new one.

    Definitely replace it as all sorts of bacteria could get caught in the tears and bare electronics is hardly safe. I doubt the silicone you would use as a filler would be very safe either.

    Discard it. It sounds like a major safety hazard due to the bare electronics and bacteria risks. I wouldn't even consider trying to fill it with silicone as the two won't be the same grade and could react with each other, ruining the toy further.

    100% say the same. 

    Not only will these missing chunks now harbour bacteria, filling them in would not be reliable and bits could fall off inside you. Also, if it was a waterproof rabbit, it may not be anymore. 

    Discount code + new vibe is definitely the way forward in my opinion.
