Oh okay! Where can I get these fresh herbs and forage? Do you know where I can get a big bag? How would I feed him the stuff? The herbs
Herbs you can get in any supermarket. They can have all of them apart from chives. You could try basil, mint, dill, oregano, rosemary, parsley, cilantro,... You can get dried forage (plantain, dandelion, coneflower, chicory root, leaves,...) online. I don't know the US sites (I'm in the UK). sorry.

Okay so I should give him limited pellets, a lot of hay, and should I give him veggies only one time of the day? A few greens. Would it be okay to give him treats still or no? I’ll limit down to one treat each day or is that still bad?
I don't give treats. I think of pellets and other non-hay food as treats. Almost all store bought treats are very unhealthy.

Treats depends on the size, and whats in it. No fruits still. He should get no veggies if it was my bunny. They should start eatting veggies at 6 months old. If you really want to give them veggies less than a cup a day would be fine. Make sure they are safe veggies (less than a cup per 3 pound rabbit)
Okay so less than a cup a day. Only once correct? The treats are some oxbow baked treats. They’re these hearts of apple and banana. I would assume I should stop feeding time since they have fruits. Less pellets and LOTS of hay. I’ll fill his litter box up to the tippity top. So he’ll have loads.

It’s fine! I’ll look for those things today if I go to the market.. or I’ll just look for some online. Thank you. This all made me feel better.

Your giving him to many veggies and fruits. Do Not limit the hay, also switch from alfafa. I believe that alfafa should only be fed to babies under 10weeks old. Feed less pellets, maybe 1/4 a cup. Get orchard grass as rabbits ussullay love it!
I bought him Timothy hay as that seems to keep him occupied for hours. It’ll be here by today.

Oxbow treats are great! Just not fresh fruits, they can have 1 full heart treat a day. I would reccommend you'd break it up and feed little pieces throughout the day. You do not need to refill the hay to the tippy top, I just reccomend taking out the old hay and refilling it every morning and night. Fresh hay is more entcing to bunnies. Yes only once a day for veggies

Oh okay. I’m gonna clean out the alfalfa hay he pooped in but didn’t even bother to eat. This is making me really happy. Thank you lots :) Also do you happen to know if there are any side affects in rabbits that eat some rose petals? He managed to pick some dying rose petals that had fallen off the rose we have in a vase.. he ate a few and I’m not sure if he’ll get poisoned or something. Will he be okay or should I be concerned?

Oh no! Is there anything I can do!? Is there any signs I should look for? How long before a rabbit can show signs of poison? I think the rose is from a florist or from a store too so that’s even worse.. oh no.. ugh. This is the worst weekend I’ve had...

He just ran to his litter box and started eating his hay.. I’m really worried now.. what should I do???? The rose was from this base with a couple other flowers.

I would just call the florist, ask if they use pesticides, then call a vet and ask them for further instruction

I’ll probably just call a vet if I can. Ask them about it for reassurance. I’m not sure what florist it was from. If anything I think it was from a market but I’m not sure at all. I don’t but flowers !!! My parents do

I mean right now he doesn’t show signs of poison. He’s running, jumping and even flopping down on his side. He’s licking me right now. He’s bathing himself too. Drinking water aswell. Everything seems to be great in my book.

Yea he seems fine. If it was just a little and they are eating your bunny should be fine.

Roses are perfectly safe for rabbits. They love them, and can eat the whole plant. Even if there were pesticides on the roses in your vase, the amount would be so small, he'd probably be fine.

Update on louie: He’s doing better already! I fed him his daily veggies(ONCE)(Pellets less than a cup. VERY much less) Fed him a bit of his treat(will feed him some later same piece) and I filled his litter box with Timothy hay. He’s been near his box for about 2 hours and he goes in and out. I bought him some new toys too!
