My 3 yr old bunny from the get go has basically hated anything to do with pellets. Most Rabbit food we have bought him he has not liked and after a few days still no go regards to eating it!! I basically given him sunflower unsaled seeds, some of the smaller things you find in other pet foods . Loves Romaine lettuce, carrots etc. Anyone have any other advice. He gets out daily for exercise and we change his cage very frequent, every 4-5 days, water is refilled every day. Any advice ?? Food for Pet House Rabbits Vs

Picture a food pyramid for rabbits. What do you see at the base? If you chose bunny pellets, you wouldn’t be alone. Walking down the small animal aisle in pet stores usually reinforces the idea that bunny food takes the form of a brown pellet mix (and many times with corn kernels and other unhealthy additives thrown in).When we first get rabbits, we quickly learn that our bunny likes to interact and will easily approach you if you have some kind of food or treat for them. We all love it when our rabbit goes through his silly begging motions, which are usually quite cute and highly effective. When we are just learning about pet rabbits, this is sometimes the only interaction that we are able to have with our furry pets. Some of us get a Pavlovian response and will continue pass out the treats in order to interact more and get the approval from our otherwise aloof or distant bunny. This can become a habit and the toll that this takes is directly proportional to the caloric content of the treats that you bestow.Ideally, grass is the main dish in every meal for both pet rabbits and those in the wild. Hay is grass that's been grown specifically for feeding animals, so when you feed your pet rabbit hay, you're actually giving him a type of grass. In the wild, rabbits must eat whatever grass is available to them. They also spend a lot of energy searching for food. Your pet rabbit doesn't have a choice and has to eat what you give him, so make sure it's a type of hay that won't make him too fat. Timothy, oat, bermuda, orchard grass or wheat hay are all good choices for pet bunnies. Alfalfa hay has too many calories and too much calcium for rabbits and should only be given as an occasional treat.Additionally, as your pet rabbit ages, some foods may need to be reduced or eliminated completely. Vegetables and greens should not be introduced to your rabbit until they are at least 12 weeks old (a rabbit breeder suggested waiting until 6 months). In general, foods high in carbohydrates, sugar and calcium can be harmful or even fatal for your rabbit.My list contains only those things that we humans eat and not the numerous toxic plants that should be kept away from your pet rabbit. In compiling this list of foods not safe to feed rabbits, I found a great deal of conflicting advice. I would guess like all foods that are bad for us, that some rabbits can tolerate more than others. Also, several people mentioned seeing wild rabbits eating corn, which is listed by a number of sites as being a very bad choice for rabbits. Two things come to mind there – wild rabbits are probably a bit tougher and you have no idea if they became ill or died as a result of eating the corn.Never buy those gourmet pellets at the pet store. They have all kinds of things in them that rabbits were never meant to have, such as dried peas and corn, nuts and seeds and lots of other bad stuff. Many rabbits will pick out all the junk and not even eat the pellets. This is bad. I wish this stuff was not even sold in pet stores. Once again, people think that if they pay more money for this “deluxe” food, that they are loving their rabbit more. Little do they know that they are actually loving their rabbit to death.
