Someone shared this food comparison website with me ( http://www.therabbithouse.com/diet/rabbit-food-comparison.asp ) and I am trying to price compare, but some of the websites only have ingredient information without a price. Does anyone know some cheap food pellets that are healthiest for a slightly overweight adult rabbit? If so, where I can buy them? Is Amazon better or some online store? I live in Boston, so if anyone can recommend a place to go in person I can do that too.

That is a useful link though many of those brands are not available in the US. The site is UK based.

Lower protein levels and higher fiber are best for a slightly overweight bun. I would use that chart to focus on the pellets with the lower protein percentages. In fact there is a good article on that same site all about diet for such a rabbit:

Not sure where you buy hay, but that is where you can save tons of money by buying by the bale. Pellets should be making up such a small portion of their diet that you won't see much savings by going with something cheap (unhealthy). A pricier (but healthy) brand should still only cost about $5 per month if it is being portioned right. The bag itself may seem pricey, but it lasts a long time. Even if you found pellets for free, you'd only be saving that $5/month.

The following page on my site gives some other cost-cutting tips:

The last time I purchased Sherwood pellets, I got them thru Amazon. They used to only be available through the Sherwood site. The price was the same regardless of where I got them.
