  1. Greetings! I am the temporary "staff" for my wifes' rabbit and I'm tasked with keeping it well fed and warm for the winter. Keeping him warm has been surprisingly easy thanks to a microwave plastic heat thing (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71dVEQVxeTL._SL1263_.jpg). But we've recently changed his hay to a better quality one as he used to be toastie indoor rabbit and we feel we need to up the quality of his food overall to compensate for the coldness.

    Current diet:

    *small amount of pellets (http://www.supremepetfoods.com/products/science-selective-rabbit/)

    *One whole "veg" or "fruit". For example, one apple, one stick of celery.

    *A carrot as an occasional treat

    *A banana if he is looking a bit thin

    *A little bit of fresh mint or thyme once per week

    *Petlife Oxbow Western Timothy Hay <----- This one he won't eat!!


    He did this before when we bought expensive hay and he would only eat it if we washed it!!! This time, I tried underfeeding him for one day and he ate some but not much.

    Our biggest concern is that he is a rescue rabbit and has very bad breeding which affects his jaw. He was only two when he had to have his back teeth chopped down and we don't want that to happen again.

    Please help?
