Neutering not only prevents pregnancy but also has numerous other benefits such as:
In my experience as a Veterinary Nurse I personally feel all rabbits not being used for breeding should be neutered, even if you are keeping a pairing of the same sex. Neutering forms a vital part in forming a living and sustained bond with companions.
Neutering is a routine procedure carried out by a vet, your rabbit will have to have a general anaesthetic for the procedure to be carried out.
Males have their testes removed and females have their ovaries and uterus removed and this is known as spaying.
Entire rabbits have stronger smelling urine and are more prone to spraying their urine as a territory marker. This means house rabbits who are neutered are far easier to litter train.
