Ok sorry to post different links but I was sittin by Oreos cage today and was squeezin his water bottl as I hvent seen him drink and the water was not going down. I ave been doing this since I got him and he never cared.

Well today the poor thing was suckin as long as I was makin it come out. He now is even tryin to lick it and even bite it. I am going to trade the bo0ttles of Doras and his as she is a savage lol hers might flo a bit easier so we will see.

If not should I start offerin him a bowl he wont touch it but a little water on a plate and he drinks it right up

Hi! I think all those bottles work on vacuum. Maybe something isnt quite right with it? Are there any directions on it as far as how far to fill it and so on?

I would still go ahead and put a bowl of water out. You at least know that he "can" drink out of it and when he gets thirsty them he will have to. Rabbits dont eat if they arent able to drink water. You could help entice him to drink the water out of the bowl buy flavoring it with a little bit of apple juice.

Are your water bottles new ones?

If not, I would be inclined to buy a new bottle. In the event that when you are not around, he will have plenty of water to access.

Less worry for you too.

sounds like a bum bottle, so replacing it sounds like a good idea. if you think a bowl will encourage him to drink more, I'd recommend trying it. We discovered that our buns drink a lot more bottled water than tap, so offer bottled now.
