    It depends what syringe you are using as to how many. I prefer to use a 1ml syringe for feeding a rabbit as it's easier to gauge and not so messy (ie not so much goes down their front).

    Please don't get hung up on the amounts

    As I mentioned, herbs are very good - coriander and parsley are faves here. Try and crush them up, release the aroma, tickle her nose with them and make her snatch them off you in disgust (and of course eat them).
    Thank you, will give that a go with the herbs . With regards to the syringe im just using the one supplies with the food so it goes up to 15ml.

    *shes just eaten about half a syringe of baby food mentioned earlier. It didnít have any critical care mixed with it but surely eating something is better than nothing? Will try her with some CC now.

    Absolutely - some food is definitely better than nothing!

    I should just give her whatever she will take. I tend to leave it 2/3 hours between feeds, or the rabbit gets stressed. In between, she may begin eating bits and pieces on her own.

    Good luck xx
