Understanding Rabbit Neutering

What is Neutering?

Neutering is a surgical procedure that involves removing the reproductive organs of rabbits to prevent them from breeding. This common procedure is crucial for managing the rabbit population responsibly and comes with numerous health and behavioural benefits for your pet.

Health Benefits:

  • Prevention of Reproductive-Related Diseases:
    • Female Rabbits: Neutering female rabbits, also known as spaying, eliminates the risk of uterine cancer and reduces the occurrence of ovarian cysts. These conditions are relatively common in unspayed females.
    • Male Rabbits: Neutering male rabbits helps prevent testicular tumours, reducing the likelihood of reproductive-related cancers.
  • Improved Longevity and General Health: Neutering contributes to an overall improvement in the health and longevity of rabbits. By eliminating the stress and health risks associated with reproduction, rabbits can lead longer, healthier lives.
  • Avoidance of Unwanted Pregnancies: Neutering is a responsible measure to prevent unwanted litters. With the rabbit population being prone to overpopulation, particularly in rescue centres, neutering helps in curbing the number of abandoned or neglected rabbits.

Behavioural Benefits:

  • Reduction in Aggressive Behaviour: Neutering tends to reduce aggressive behaviours in both male and female rabbits. This includes territorial aggression, biting, and lunging, leading to a more harmonious living environment.
  • Diminished Hormonal Behaviours: Hormonal behaviours, such as excessive digging, mounting, and spraying, are common in unneutered rabbits. Neutering helps curb these behaviours, making rabbits more manageable and pleasant companions.
  • Enhanced Bonding in Pairs: For bonded pairs, neutering is essential for maintaining a peaceful relationship. Unneutered rabbits may exhibit aggressive tendencies, making it challenging for them to coexist harmoniously.
  • Reduction in Marking Behaviour: Both male and female rabbits can engage in marking their territory through urine spraying. Neutering significantly reduces this behaviour, contributing to a cleaner and more hygienic living space.
  • Improved Social Integration: Neutered rabbits are often more socially integrated and adaptable. This is especially important if you have multiple rabbits or plan to introduce a new rabbit to the household.

If you have a rabbit that is not yet neutering or spayed but would like to book them in for this procedure, get in touch with Alder Vets today.

Neutering helps prevent certain health issues in rabbits, including uterine cancer, ovarian cysts, and testicular tumours. It also reduces the risk of aggressive behaviour and territorial marking, leading to a more balanced and contented rabbit. 

Population Control

With the rising number of abandoned rabbits, responsible pet ownership is crucial. Neutering helps prevent unwanted litters, contributing to the overall well-being of rabbits in Guildford and reducing the strain on rescue organisations.
