My netherland dwarf bunny is around 8 1/2 years old. Lately (past few months) I've noticed that he doesn't eat as much. Now, usually won't finish his little bowl everyday (maybe eats half of it), although i do refill it with fresh pellets and some veggies everyday. He has never been much of a hay eater, but I try to encourage him to eat hay but he doesn't eat much of it. I've noticed that he isn't so active either. He just sits in his box most of the day and comes out at night to hop around and play. He used to hop and run around a lot more, and this is what worries me. Should I be worried that something is wrong with him? I know he is kinda old for a dwarf bunny but I want to make sure he is healthy. He looks okay though and doesn't look like he's lost any weight.
Also, is it normal to have tear-y eyes? The fur at the bottom of his eyes is not as soft because it gets wet an dries up
