Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how often to dispense and how to prepare the formula. Pull the prepared formula into the syringe. Small animal feeding syringes are preferred over eye droppers, as eye droppers are more likely to risk making your rabbit aspirate the formula into their lungs. Slip on the soft rubber tip that comes with most feeding syringes. Depress the syringe slightly to make sure it is free of air bubbles, then gently put the rubber tip into your rabbit’s mouth.
Slow and steady is the key—if your bunny can suckle the formula out themselves, don’t manually depress the plunger. If you have to manually depress, go as slowly as you can. It’s always recommended to consult your veterinarian regarding feeding procedures for newborn pets or small animals who need assistance with food.
