There are many benefits to neutering for your Rabbit

brentknoll, vets, caring, rabbit, worcester, neuteringIt can help them live a longer, healthier life and neutering reduces the risk of cancer and urinary tract infections. Rabbits that are neutered often make better pets, especially for young children as they are often calmer and easier to handle once neutered. Caring for a neutered rabbit is usually easier as many can successfully be litter trained and have less of an urge to spray.

Un-neutered female rabbits can become very territorial and aggressive as they reach sexual maturity, they may even growl, scratch and bite other rabbits and even their human owners! If they aren't neutered they are at a high risk of developing uterine cancer in adult life.  For these reasons, Brentknoll Vets recommend spaying for all female rabbits.

Neutered bunnies can be easier to bond because of their calmer demeanour and prevent unwanted pregnancies.
