• Neutering

Whether you have one rabbit or ten rabbits and are not planning on breeding from them, we would recommend neutering at a relatively young age.

It is beneficial for both behaviour and physical health throughout their life. Uterine cancer in middle-aged female rabbits that haven’t been speyed is very common.

Terms used:

Castration for male rabbits (bucks). Speying for female rabbits (does).

We generally recommend:

Castration at approximately 5 months.
Speying at approximately 5 months.

Your vet will be happy to explain in more detail and make recommendations for your individual pet.
