    Is he eating hay or grass at all? You might be able to coax him to eat by putting a little apple juice on the hay, or mixing a bit of grated carrot with the hay. Some bunnies will eat recovery food mixed with mashed banana or a little rabbit safe vegetable or fruit baby food. Some of the Ella’s kitchen or Aldi pouch baby food is popular. Is your vet rabbit savvy?

    Sending lots of vibes to your bunny xx

    Did the vet check his teeth are ok? Does he normally eat much hay? He might be tempted by chopped grass or Readigrass. Some bunnies are very fussy about the hay they will eat. Some places will send samples of different hays which might be worth a try. Some bunnies like fibafirst sticks but some don’t so it might be worth asking for a sample. Does he eat pellets normally?

    Sometimes bunny owning can be very stressful

    Also try him with some fresh herbs or dandelion leaves. The smell of them may tempt him to eat more, especially if he can't see them.
