I got the cutest bunny ever a couple weeks ago. He’s a 4.5 month old English Lop. His ears are longer than my Bloodhound’s ears (we measured).
Anyway, my question is that I’m concerned about his hay intake. I know hay should make up the majority of his diet, but he hardly touches it. A few strands here and there. I have timothy in one feeder and orchard grass in another feeder. Will this intake increase with age or do I need to consult a vet for this? He is going to get spayed in a week so I plan to ask them if it hasn’t improved, but I can take him in before then if needed. It’s been 13 years since I last had a rabbit, and I’ve never had a baby one before so I don’t know if the low hay interest is normal. He came from a bad breeder - I tried to do my research and she sounded reputable and has success at shows, but then I saw the conditions of her rabbitry and the care guidance she provided (she advised to feed 3 cups of pellets each day, which is significantly more than any research I’ve done shows, and also advised to feed an alfalfa based pellet which goes against most research especially once he is an adult).
