What Is Neutering?
Neutering in male rabbits is known as castration.
Neutering in female rabbits is known as spaying.
We recommend neutering all pet rabbits to prevent unwanted pregnancies and avoid health problems like ovarian and testicular cancer. Neutered rabbits also tend to be more sociable/less likely to fight with other bunnies.

What Is The Difference In Procedures?
If your rabbit is male, our vet will make a small incision over each testicle so that they can be carefully removed. Performed as a minor surgical operation under general anaesthetic.
If your rabbit is female, your vet will make a small incision along the middle of her abdomen (tummy) so her ovaries and uterus (womb) can be carefully removed. Performed as a routine surgical operation under general anaesthesia.
