urgent hay advice needed

the UPS man with my order of hay got lost! and he will not be here until monday! the hay ryo has now is very very dusty. i can get her more hay tomorrow night. but thats 19 or 20 hrs from now. i am wandering if i should feed the dusty hay until then... or no hay at all.
if i dont give her hay for so long can it mess up her GI track?
or is it worse feeding such dusty hay.
i hate that i got myself in this position but her apitite really has increased since last time.
if i dont feed hay can i feed wild grass? or is that even worse to do?

thank you for your time.

I highly doubt your bunny will get sick from not having hay for that short a period of time. Just make sure you feed her healthy veggies and pellets and she has water like usual.
You could also go to a feed store and just pick up some not so great hay and feed it until Monday if that is possible.

I agree with Natalie. There were a couple times my bunnies had to go without hay for a little while.

thanks guys. sorry i am such a worry wart!
i am not going to feed her any of that dusty hay! she will have some hay sometime tomorrow afternoon or night. the pellets i have for her are not great what so ever. there are kaytee brand, so that says it all.
anyway she has tons of fresh veggies.

My bunny, Charlie, was on Kaytee until a few days ago. She switched over by herself, but hated OxBow before. I'm not complaining.

If you really want to give your rabbit hay right now, grass is just fine. You can also rinse the hay you have with water and dry it off with towels. Be careful of giving her too many fresh vedgies or she could get diarrhea.

Since Ratty Ratkins asked about wild grass, I assume you can get it in Scottsville Kentucky.

here in connecticut after the snow comes and the ground freezes our grass just dies and turns to mushy mud. poor bunnies too cause they love their fresh clover!

Go feed bunny some Kale, that is always a healthy favourite. Carrot tops and dandelion leaves from supermarket are also good.
