Does this look like the right amount of veggies to be giving my bunny? I give it it every day (or every other day if I forget).

I need recommendations for grooming products for my new Holland lop. She is 7/8 weeks old. I think I'll need a slicker brush, comb and nail clippers. Any good brands people like that work well? Also, I use a nail Dremel and have clippers for my dogs but I'm sure those are too big.

I use a nail-clipper for humans. I also use a self-cleaning slicker + a lint-roller for after brushing. I have a comb for one of my buns, the other bun's fur never tangles so he doesn't need a comb.

I read that it is alright, just in small amounts. I give my bunnies a dried cranberry as a treat.

Hi! my rabbit Daisy had to switch pellets because the ones she was eating were causing her to have terrible diarrhea but now she is refusing to eat the new pellets. I don't know what to do so I was wondering if anyone has any tips to try to get her to eat these new pellets.

Hi Kourtney

Do you still have some of the old pellets?  If she can still tolerate a small amount of those, perhaps mix a bit of her old and new food together. Hopefully the smell of the one she is used to will transfer to the new ones.

Are the ingredients very different?  For example, the junior rabbit pellets are alfalfa based and adult usually timothy based. Some rabbits take a while to like the adult pellets. 

It might just be a matter of offering them again and again. Even if she doesn't eat them initially, it won't hurt her, as long as she is eating hay. 

Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.
