Hi Everyone!
New to this forum. I have a 3 year old lionhead rabbit who is very active, healthy, and very personable. About a year ago I had to take him to have surgery to remove his incisors, because no matter how much he chewed on things they kept growing. Before the surgery he loved to eat carrots and other treats right out of my hand. But now he just sniffs the food and turns away. Just looking for some guidance on how I can get him to start eating from my hand again. He eats fine on his own, with his pellets and hay.

Thanks,
Dominic

Maybe the chunks of carrots are deterring him. Have you tried grating the carrot and feeding him? Smaller pieces might be a good start.
Any progress? I see this post was from a few weeks back 😊

Maybe go for softer treats and smaller pieces or grated like @Fuz said
