Emit when I got him was on a free limit of pellets and I’ve cut back to half a cup of feed between the two twice a day.

    Transitioning to adult diet

    I was wondering when to start transitioning my bun to adult pellets? He’s nearly 5 months old and still on burgess excel junior pellets. I have the adult pellets ready to go to start the transition which apparently they can eat from 4 months old. Any help would be much appreciated :)

    Cecotrope floor marking?

    Hi! I recently adopted my rabbit Dr. Cheese from a shelter and absolutely adore him. However, he is my second rabbit and I was a bit concerned about his digestion within the first 2 weeks. I noticed that he seems to leave small circular brown "spots" on his mat in his playpen and my last rabbit...

    What quantity of pellets do you feed?

    Hello I am interested to know how much pellets (if any), you feed your rabbits daily and do you give it in one sitting or more? Also would be helpful to know what size your bun is. I’m particularly interested in small-medium as that is what I have :) Thank you in advance for any info?

    Rabbit no longer interested in eating pellets, still eating greens and hay

    Hi all, One of my rabbits has lost all interest in her pellets. Both of them eat twice a day, with both meals consisting of about 1/8 cup of pellets next to their greens. The boy goes wild for them but she doesn't touch them anymore, causing him to steal them and get more than his diet's...

    Can I feed grass instead of hay?

    I have a 5 year old rabbit who doesn’t eat hay, she only eats hay cubes. It’s not enough though. We took her to the vet today and the vet said it seems like she’s beginning to develop GI stasis. I know this can kill bunnies which is why I want to know if grass is a good substitute for hay. I’ve...
