- Reduces unwanted sexual behaviour such as mounting people/objects and urine marking
- Removes risk of unwanted pregnancy, if kept with an entire female
- Greatly assists with litter training
We like to send rabbits home after their surgery once we observe them eating. The drugs that we give rabbits while they are undergoing their procedure include a drug that maintains gut motility. Rabbits also receive a 24 hour pain relief as do cats and dogs. We do not generally send rabbits home with additional pain relief but we do get the very occasional rabbit that is quiet the next day.
Please telephone us if this is the case with your rabbit and we can see them. It is a good idea if your rabbit is normally housed outside to keep them in for at least 24 hours so that you can observe them.
Sexual maturity is reached between 4 and 6 months of age (small breeds earlier than large breeds). We will, therefore, neuter rabbits from 4 months of age.
The procedure is simple and can be covered when booking in your rabbit to see the Vet. You will be able to collect your pet later in the afternoon.
Unlike cats and dogs, rabbits should not be starved before or after operations.
Rabbits do not like stress and every effort is made by White Cliffs Vets to minimise this.
