    When I weighed Bolt in February, he weighed 4.8 lbs, versus 5 lbs at his neuter surgery. I slightly increased his food but when I weighed him today he was 5 lbs 3 oz. I don’t know if it is from the increased food for a month or if he has been stealing Shadoe’s pellets (they are bonded). Shadoe weighs the same as she did in February though. Should I give him less pellets than normal? Is there a proper weight for a Dutch bunny? Any help appreciated!

    You can’t always go by weight to determine if a rabbit is overweight or underweight. Here is a site that helps to determine if a rabbit is the correct weight. http://www.therabbithouse.com/diet/rabbit-weight.asp

    Depending on the site you go to, you will see different weight ranges for a Dutch rabbit. His current weight fits into many of the sites I checked out. If you do determine that he is overweight, you can slowly decrease the amount of pellets.
