    My 5 month old lion-head keeps losing weight .
    She currently weighs 1 pound , she was something like 2 pounds when we got her ( about a month ago )
    She eats properly , A teaspoon of pellets a day and about a cup of veggies .
    Unlimited hay of course , and she lives in a large nic pen that i recently built .
    28 square feet . And is let out for at least 2-3 hours
    Why is she losing weight?!?!

    You should take your bun to the vet, maybe she have worms but better to let a rabbit savy vet do tests.

    They may need a little more pellets too. Hopefully you will get more answers at the Vet. If everything seems fine and normal health wise at the Vet, then give them more pellets in their diet. Best wishes! Hope your bunny gains weight and feels better soon.
