My bunny actually won't touch carrots. He buries them so he doesn't have to eat them. He prefers apples and broccoli, the weirdo.

Mine didn't like carrots either. He was fine with other fruits and veggies but he hated carrots.

I'd advise use of the Holy Hand Grenade to remedy your vicious bunny situation, but I assume you want to keep your bunny alive. In that case, I really don't know what to tell you. Appeasement?

Pretty easy but unpopular option when any sort of pet decides to become picky about their food: Let them starve. As in: do NOT give them different food until they've finished what they've already got. If they're really stubborn, they might hold out for a few days, but no animal is going to die from hunger when they have food available.

I had a rabbit like that too, she was a brat lol. I gave her lots of veggies and hay but bunnies need to eat their food if you have to just only give her the food for a few days. She will learn to eat it.

Au contraire. My last bunbun was STUBBORN and ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT eat packaged rabbit food from a pet store. No matter what we did. We tried just leaving it there for days, we tried different brands... He would simply ignore it and let birds or squirrels come and take it while he munched on grass. His enclosure was a hutch we had built to stand with the natural ground as the floor, so he had gotten used to eating fresh grass and the alfalfa I tossed into his hidey shelter, and my stepfather alw

it depends really. The generic protein pellets are to high in protein if that's what you're trying to feed them. people don't seem to understand that that isn't natural. I have a pet mouse and he's on a purely seeds only diet. Those protein pellets are like eating a protein bar for every meal. It's gross, I mean really try eating the same protein bar every day for each meal and that's all you can eat. So if you feed your pets that which pet stores blindly recommend then expect your animal to hav

I have mice rats and a chinchilla and a dwarf hamster and I have to feed them certain foods, because they need a specific amount. So if the rabbit won't eat it's pellets can't it get sick? I'm no rabbit expert of course I've only had 2 and I'm not a vet yet (getting there) but from what I know I think all animals need their pellets for protein and carrots are awful for rabbits anyways.

My little brother's bunny did something similar when we got her. We bought her the pellets with pieces of dried fruits and veggies. She'd only eat said fruits and veggies and dump all the pellets. Hopefully your bunny will eventually cave in, OP! Try asking around for help. There's plenty of bunny forums :)

be sure to give it lots of hay, too. I made that mistake before. Rabbits constantly need hay, even on top of veggies.

Give the bunny lots of hay and water - make sure they have loads of hay always - they like dandilion leaves and fresh grass too (not mowed!) Let the bunny eat the pellets from the ground if they spill it (in my opinion)
