Neutering Rabbits

Neutering in male rabbits (bucks) is where the testicles are removed, whilst in female rabbits (does) the ovaries and uterus are removed.

The operation itself, which requires a general anaesthetic, can be carried out from about four months of age onwards.

Neutered rabbits tend to be calmer, less prone to aggressive or destructive behaviour and can be kept in social groups without fighting.

The most obvious benefit is that you can prevent unwanted pregnancies. Additionally, because reproductive organs have been removed, rabbits are protected from cancer of these organs.

Please note that if your pet is having a routine neutering operation on a Thursday or Friday at our Keynsham surgery, we will collect them from your home on the morning of the operation, and return them to you afterwards, free of charge if you live in the following postcodes: BS1, BS3, BS4, BS13, BS14, BS31, BS41. If you live outside of these postcodes a collection fee will apply.
