Rabbits are social animals and should preferably be kept in pairs or groups, ideally reared together from birth. If opposite gender rabbits are kept together with no intention of breeding then one or both will need to be neutered from 4 months old. This principle also applies to same sex pairs too as rabbits can become quite aggressive towards one another when puberty hits.
Advantages of neutering:
- Allows rabbits to live with each other without unwanted pregnancies.
- Reduces aggression and spraying.
- Prevents uterine and ovarian cancer in females, along with phantom pregnancies.
Before the procedure your rabbit will be given a full health check by our vet. Please note that there is no need to withhold food or water prior to surgery.
