        I got Oxbow Essentials Senior pellets for my buns, right now they’re eating Oxbow Essentials Adult Pellets. I know they were born sometime in 2018, I got them when they were just weaned from their mom so they were about 6-8 weeks old (I’m guessing) so they’re close to 6years old. So do I feed senior food now and do I slowly introduce it even though both pellets are Oxbow Essentials?

          I dont think you need to do a very slow introduction. Just mix some old with some new over a few days -at least that’s what I’d do

          If your buns eat a good amount of hay daily, they’re likely to be able to digest new type pellets without trouble. I bought a whole new type of pellet for my Snoa for Christmas, and gave them first as treats. I think she believed they actually were treats 😄

            I think it will be OK to make a semi-quick switch. They are both the same brand, etc.

              See how your bun does on it. Mines hate it so I’ve had to keep mixing tiny amount with other pellets until the bag is gone
