My bunny is about 7.5 years old now, and I've noticed in the past while that she seems to be more prone to gut problems and slow-downs. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed a similar situation?

Does anyone know if a diet change is in order... like far less pellets, and more greens? I want to make sure she's getting all the nutrition she needs, but I'm a bit nervous of pellets now. Thoughts?

Thanks,

Sandra
