My bunny is starving! -

I need help!
... I haven't had the time to take my bunnies out of their cage for about a week, and my smallest bunny is dying - he is incredibly skinny and can't seem to open his mouth - his teeth are incredibly long and twisted - he weighs about nothing and I need help - I need some tips on making some sort of nutrient shake I can feed him  until I can take him to the vet !
I'm trying milk, sugar and butter - but I'm sure that's not healthy

He can open his mouth - but his teeth have grown very high and kind of twisted together.

He needs a vet. Now.
Don't wait even another moment.

Rabbits are herbivores, feeding them dairy and such isn't a good idea.
He really needs to be seen, even if all you can afford to do is have him PTS humanely.

So I was reading up in the forums, and I guess he has malocussion?
He isn't in any pain, I'm wondering if I can trim his teeth- maybe that will help?
The general consensus among the forum is that I can simply use the cat trimmers to trim his teeth down
I may try this simply so he can eat - also I made a new formula with butter, sugar salt and boiled celery and carrots.

Were you able to get him to a vet? Did you trim his teeth? How is he doing now?
If you haven't yet trimmed his teeth, and haven't done it before, I wouldn't recommend it. You should at least have a vet show you how the first time and he needs to see a vet anyway if he hasn't.

OMGosh this baby needs to go to a vet and have his teeth trimmed-its like 5 dollars...I am CRYING OUT for you to get this bunny to a vet asap...he has probably passed OF STARVATION BY NOW...until you learn more about the care of bunnies I hope you dont get any more....in my opinion KNOWING this bunnies teeth were too long and leaving him or her to just "suffer" is CRUEL!
