Hi I am getting another rabbit tomorrow morning but it does not eat the same food as my rabbit what should I do? I understand that rabbits have very sensitive digestive system so I can not suddenly switch its food so what should I do?

P.S. The rabbits have seen each other on many occasions and get on well

Slowly mix the food into the new food each day to wing the rabbit off it's old food. Every day add a bit more of the new food and less of the new food. I suggest 1 cup of the old food and 1/4 new food to start off. After it eats all that food add a little more of the new food. They might get diarrhea if you change the foods over to fast but thats rare and if that dose happen don't worry about it to much just give more of it's old food. The whole process should take about a week and then you should be done and the rabbit will be introduced to it's new food before you know it.

P.S When changing the food it helps them to have a fresh supply of water to help their stomachs handle the new food.
