sometimes it takes them a little while to find a veg they are happy to eat; try him on little bits of other veg.

My rescue boy took a few weeks before he would willingly eat anything but hay and a couple of pellets. Now he is first at the bars for broccoli!

Please weigh him daily on the kitchen scales to make sure that he really is eating enough to keep his weight. If he is losing weight he needs to be seen by the vet. Make sure that he is still drinking plenty.

There are many reasons for weight loss.
