    I have a rabbit that after I changed her pettets is not pooping or eating very well. I went back to her regular diet and things have not changed much. I know that this could turn into a serious problem but I have not the money to take her to the vet. Do you have ay suggestions. Or is anyone in the North Georgia area interested in a rabbit rescue. she is a white with pink eyed Dwarf. She is less that 6 months old.

    You should take her to a vet. This happened to my rabbit and I had to force feed him canned pumpkin in addition to an antibiotic.

    You need to be careful when switching food with young rabbits. It's better to mix a little of the new food with the original food and increase the amount of the new over time. Do you also feed hay or oats? Wool block will also cause them not to poop.
