    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...

    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...

    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...

    My bunny is not a hay eater

    Hi all, my nearly one year old male neutered Holland Lop, Mookie, barely eats his hay. When I originally got him at about 6 weeks he did, but gradually he just stopped. He does eat his high fiber pellets, and I round out his diet with leafy greens daily (mostly celery leaves). I have him...

    Should I decrease pellets for my rabbits?

    So I got two new rabbits. At their old home all they are are were pellets. They are holland lops and got a third of a cup of pellets a day. I am starting to feed them unlimited hay now which they really seem to like. Should I cut back on pellets or not?

    Introducing a older rabbit to hay.

    I just got a new rabbit from a breeder and she doesn’t feed hay to her rabbits. I’m wondering how would I start to introduce hay to her?
