    I think the hop to forage is in cornstarch bags which biodegrades.

    That's good to know, because the forage I purchased previously was from them and I assumed it was plastic. I'll take a look on their website

I really need to get some weight on him, my vet said he's very underweight

    Soz Graicee, I knew I'd written this somewhere but thought it was on my hay thread

    Permanent meadows (timothy, meadow fescue, meadow foxtail, ryegrass, red fescue, blue grass, cocksfoot, velvet grass, annual panicle grass, white ragweed, vernal grass, couch grass, tussock grass, reed canary grass, white clover, red clover, dandelion leaves, yarrow herb, ribwort, caraway, cow parsley, meadow sweet, common hornwort, bedstraw, thyme-leaved speedwell, bush vetch, comfrey, bedstraw-meadow thistle, ground ivy, daisies, germander speedwell, lady's mantle, greater burnet-saxifrage, narrow-leaved vetch, meadow saxifrage, spring cinquefoil, green field-speedwell, common whitlow-grass, autumn dandelion, red ragweed, cowslip, small clover), sunflower seed extracted, linseed extracted, fruit pomace, carrot pomace, wheat bran, rape seed extracted

    tbh some of these ingredients unnerve me a tad but they have really helped Mouseys tum & bum - I think - hard to say for definite as I've also made some other changes (basically she has those wet, forage & herbs). I guess it'd be risky with Atticus ...too many ingredients. I can empathise though. I used to read about rabbits needing to gain weight & thought to myself that can't be so hard ...turns out it really is if they have any gastro intestinal sensitivities
