Can a rabbit get sick if it eats too much at once?

I just found my rabbit in its container of pellets - he was probably eating for about 10 minutes...they are premium grade timothy hay based pellets with no fillers. Can he get sick from this?

    It can, but it cannot vomit

    Possibly. He could start to show early signs of GI stress. The best way to avoid (or help) this is to keep him off of pellets for a couple days and offer plenty of hay. Refresh the hay a couple times per day as well. The hay will help everything move through his gut and prevent further GI stress.
