4 reasons you should get your rabbit spayed / neutered

Lucy_EthelWhile most pet owners agree that you should get your dog or cat spayed / neutered, many people are surprised to hear that pet rabbits fall into the same category.

BaileyRabbits that are left intact (not spayed or neutered) will reproduce like, well, like rabbits! Additionally your unsterilized rabbit is at risk of serious illness and could exhibit  undesirable behaviors.  Getting your rabbit spayed or neutered means your rabbit will:

  1. Live longer due to less risk of serious illness.
  2. Avoid certain cancers.
  3. Be a better companion, calmer and more loving.
  4. Be easier to litter train and less likely to spray.

BillyTo get your rabbit spayed or neutered, find a veterinarian who is experienced in rabbit sterilization; many are not.  Rabbits are very delicate and need special care under anesthesia.  Get a referral from a rabbit rescue group or someone you know who has rabbits.  Ask the vet how many rabbit spays / neuters he/she has done.  Also check our directory of low-cost spay / neuter clinics around the U.S. and Canada at http://www.nootersclub.org/lowcostspayneuter.htm

Look for the rabbit symbol.
