        My 5 month old holland lop is recovering from gut stasis now, today is day 3 of recovery

        however, he is only eating the soft leaves of the hay and refuses to eat the stalks

        What are the possible reasons for this? does he have a dental disease? This is his teeth

          One possible reason could be that he doesnt feel like his normal self just yet. Is he eating other food?

          The teeth look even, but sort of “leaning” sideways? That could be just the picture though. Did you see a vet for his stasis?

          Rabbits chew hay with their molars (inner teeth). We cant see those teeth without an otoscope. They use their incisors to pull the food into their mouth (and to gnaw on stuff like twigs and baseboards etc).
