I agree, I'd get her in for a health evaluation if she's loosing weight. Don't just assume it's because of age. There are quite a few medical reasons why a rabbit could start loosing weight.
I've heard a few people lately say that apparently rabbits over 5 are considered to be seniors. I never gave it much thought but 5 seems kind of young to me to start considering them senior. Maybe that's just me though. The first rabbit I owned as a kid growing up lived to be just over 15, so thinking of them being old when they're 5 seems weird to me. I've worked with quite a few rabbits over 5, some of them even double that, at the shelter I volunteer at and many of them even at those ages weren't yet showing signs often associated with old rabbits.
Anyways yeah I'd get her checked out before you make any assumptions. Even if it turns out the vet agrees that it may be due to her age, it never hurts to get them in for a check up anyways.
