I clipped the rabbits' nails today and I noticed both are a little pudgy. They look bigger due to winter fluffyness but I felt both of their sides and I think they gained a little weight. Totoro is 9 months and Wilbur is 8 months, they both have not been exercising much at all lately. Aren't they a little too young to be slowing down like this yet? I'm thinking I'll reduce their pellet intake, but what is a safe amount? Wilbur currently gets 4 tablespoons and Totoro gets 6. I was thinking reducing both either 1 or 2 tablespoons.
I have the sneaking suspicion that my mom may be giving them extra craisins, so I will be hiding the bag
Edit: Wilbur got 2 tablespoons for breakfast and Totoro got 3, so I was thinking I'd start reducing with dinner tonight.
Alright thank you both!
My vet recommended 3/8 of a cup for Totoro given his size and everything, he eats hay like crazy but I agree that it's too much pellets. Wilbur gets more than normal of pellets for a 3 pound bunny because she doesn't like eating veggies much. I'll explain to my mom to only feed pellets.
