    really small droppings and won’t eat breakfast

    Hello everyone. I posted a thread yesterday asking about which digestive supplements might help my bunnies but got no answers. Today has been about the same as yesterday, with my buns both eating hay and greens. They will eat compressed hay bales, oxbow digestive health supplement, and greens...

    Best Digestive Support Suplement?

    Hi everyone! For the past few days my buns have both randomly had very small droppings and don’t want to eat much early in the mornings. They eat hay and fresh veggies in the afternoon and evening perfectly fine, and are drinking water. They also act very normal and have been more active...

    Litter training

    Is it ok if I take my 8 week old bunny’s pellets away for awhile to encourage her to use her litter box for litter training (it is filled with alfalfa hay)

    Bunny ate a lot of pellets and alfalfa?

    My 2 y.o. bun is an outside rabbit and last night we had a really windy night. It knocked over the alfalfa box and the bag of pellets and I guess she had the night of her life eating as much as she could. She normally gets only a few pellets every day (around 10g I guess) and a handful of...

    Type of hay for Rabbits

    I had read very clearly they should be eating Timothy hay from Oxbow, which they ate okay, but my Lionhead mix (snowball)didn't eat it as much as the Lop(thelma). I switched to a Timothy meadow hay from Oxbow and they both eat it like crazy. I know Alfalfa is a no, but is this kind good...

    Finicky Hay Eater

    Kyle is a little over 4 mos. and has been eating mainly Alfalfa hay & young rabbit pellets, I’ve just recently started mixing in some Timothy hay with the Alfalfa. He’s gotten picky and wasteful with his hay. He loves the dried leaf-like crumbs of the alfalfa, but leaves behind the actual...

    Bun won't foods he used to like after illness. No water either.

    Ok, I'm stumped. My rabbit was ill nearly two weeks ago. He ate a bunch of graham crackers that he shouldn't have and they upset his stomach. We took him to the vet and he was x-rayed, examined and prescribed pain killers. Now he seems almost totally normal except he will not eat his pellets or...

    TIPS ON GETTING MY RABBIT TO EAT HAY!!

    I made a big mistake when I bought her, I never fed her hay. I bought her when she was a baby from a flea market and the breeder never said anything about hay, I also didn't do much research at the time. Trust me, I know now. She is 5 years old and honestly I have no clue how she's survived this...

    Hay Feeder Alternative

    Hi everyone! My little bunny does not seem to like his hay feeder. It is one of those ones that come with the cage and is on the outside of it. He only seems to eat his hay out of his litter but I would feel better if he also had some sort of hay feeder to get his fill of hay from. Does anyone...

    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...

    Training

    Hello, Jhonni my bunny is a rescue bunny. And I have to be gentle with him. I'm still reminding him he can trust me. It's tough. He is litter trained I bought him a play pen full of hay. At first he would eat the hay and I'd give him his pellets in the hay. Now he is pooping and peeing in...

    My 2yr old stopped eating URGENT

    My rabbit oak has always been good with eating plenty of hay, I recently got her cat grass from petco and a guinea pig that lived near her died a few weeks ago besides that there have been no other changes. She is drinking water but minimally. I can’t go to the vet for another 2-3 days since my...

    Young rabbit diet?

    I’m getting a young (I think 2 months old) rabbit soon, and I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to need to feed her, as everything I see or read tells me different things. I’m going to be feeding her Oxbow Young Rabbit pellets for sure, as those seem to be the most highly recommended. But how much...

    Anyone else's bunny do this? *face palm*

    My rabbit loves peeing on his hay. I thought this hay rack would solve the problem but alas. It's wasting a lot of hay and I just don't get why he does this. His litter bedding is a layer of soft wood stove pellets and a layer of shredded paper bedding. I'm pretty sure he likes his bedding but...

    My bunnys behaviour..

    Hey can anybody please give me some tips? I have a mini lop bunny, he's maybe a few months old now. I use to have a female minilop and she was the nicest bunny, was fine with her relatively small hutch as she got heaps of run around time. Always cuddly, playful and never ever bit or scratched...

    How old should my bunny be to start feeding treats?

    Hi all (: I just was wondering when I can start feeding my young bunny treats! I have oxbow baked treats (strawberry and banana) made with hay. How long should I wait before giving her any? She’s 3 month old right now.

    Brought hay bale home- could this be fleas??

    I bought a hay bale from a local feed store (big mistake as I have nowhere to store it) and I found 3 little brown bugs. The bun has been shaking his head in a weird way but that could be just lazy binkies. Could these bugs be fleas?? I found 2 around his pen and 1 around the area where I put...

    Is this Timothy Hay good (photo attached)?

    I'm a new rabbit owner and I wanted to be economical and buy hay by the bale. I bought one from a feed store about a half an hour away from me. It was $20 for a 40 lb. bale. It doesn't look or smell as nice as the Kaytee timothy hay I had originally purchased for my bun. Can anyone tell me if...
