      My bunny has stopped eating her pellets, hay or anything hard. I have tried Oxbow, Nutrena and Kaytee pellets with no luck. She will eat greens.  The vet said her teeth are ok but doesn’t know what is wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      It does sound like a dental problem. Did your vet do a deep oral exam of the molars? Is your vet rabbit savvy? Sometimes an x-ray is needed, because you can’t usually see the back teeth without anesthesia.

      Are there any other symptoms of pain or behavioral changes?

        He said she was very good at letting him open her mouth and was able to see/feel around at the back. She is normal and active in all other ways, except you can tell she’s hungry.  Will call the vet tomorrow. Thanks

      I would feel free to give her extra greens to make sure she’s getting enough to eat. Can you try offering some pellet mash or critical care? If you have fresh grass available you could also try that.

        Thank you for the suggestions.  I bought Critical Care and have been giving her some.  I don’t know if it was that or not but today she started eating the pellets again and drinking more water.  Hopefully she’s back on the right track again.   Thanks again, you were a big help to us.  Trudy and Snowflake. 🙂 😀

      That’s good!

      Sometimes when a bunny isn’t feeling well they will snub a certain food, so it could have been she had some gas or was maybe a bit dehydrated. If the problem with go off her hay and pellets continues or comes back, I would def dig a little deeper to see what might be going on medically.
