House Rabbit Society educators and fosterers have found the following Recipes work well for bunnies with special medical needs.

Davida's Pumpkin Suprise
for bunnies that must be syringe fed.

2 tbs. pumpkin pie filling (with no sugar or spices added)
1 tbs. banana baby food
1 tsp. ground pellets (ground in a coffee grinder - it needs to be practically dust, and nothing else works.)
a little acidophilus powder
a little prozyme if you have it

Makes one batch.
Mix it up and force feed 4x a day (max 90 cc's per 5 lbs.of bunny)

Melissa's Banana-Pellet Balls
for bunnies that can eat on their own, but require soft food.

Mash 1/2-3/4 large banana with a fork until creamy

grate up pellets in coffee grinder. I do a whole lot at a time, then measure out 1/4-1/3 cup of pellet dust.

Cream dust into banana as if you were creaming sugar into butter. Add pellets as necessary to make a consistency firm enough to form into balls, but soft enough to chew easily. This varies from bunny to bunny probably. I experimented until I found Melissa's consistency.

Add acidophilus or other non-nasty additives. If it smells bad, they may be put off the balls, so I don't add serious meds to this.

Form into balls (1-2) and serve.
