Have you started a new bag? Sometimes I find companies randomly change the formula and it takes them a few days to get used to the new taste.
Apologies if this is in the wrong section:
I usually give Oreo and Geoffrey around 2 egg cup fulls of pellets between them both split over breakfast and tea time. The pair of them are usually waiting by their food bowls but the past few days they haven't done this and when I've dished out the pellets, Oreo kind of dips in out of eating them but Geoffrey just doesn't eat them at all.
I give them their usual veg as well (broccoli, little gem lettuce, cauliflower) and, of course, an unlimited amount of hay.
The pair of them still eat the veg and hay and some little treats, they're just not bothered by the pellets. I've given them both, Geoffrey in particular, some crunchy treats just to see if he's having trouble chomping but he seems fine with those. They both appear to be toileting as normal.
I've just bought some fresh hay from timothyhay.co.uk (I usually buy Wilko's timothy hay) and I'm wondering if because of the better quality of hay they're feeling satiated enough with that?
I'm going to ring the vet shortly for advice, but was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same.
Many thanks in advance
what pellets is it they have if you don't mind me asking?
hmm might also be wise to try and cut down the amount of veg slightly... if they are eating plenty of hay xxx

I would halve the amount of veg but it might not be that. Hope they return to normal soon.
I personally would get their teeth checked as one of my bunnies, in the past, stopped eating pellets and had the beginning of an abscess.
She was still eating everything else just fine.

I've phoned the vets and the lady on reception didn't seem overly concerned about them going off the pellets but she's going to get the vet that specialises in rabbits to call me back today with more in depth advice.
I'll try and get them both in for a check up anyway just to err on the side of caution. If something was 'wrong' I'd rather it be caught now than later.
Is it a new bag of pellets, or could they have got contaminated with anything? It seems odd both of them have gone off them
