Neutering

Neutering your rabbit
Your rabbit’s temperament is strongly influenced by its sex hormones.

Your rabbit’s temperament is strongly influenced by its sex hormones.


Sexually mature females may become aggressive towards owners, destructive towards objects in the house and very territorial.


Mature rabbits, whether male or female, may scent mark, spraying urine around their territory.


Beyond behavioural modification, neutering can also help to prevent significant disease.


Anywhere between 50 and 80% of female rabbits that are not neutered will suffer ovarian or uterine cancer by the age of four.


For these reasons we would advocate the neutering of all pet rabbits at around the age of five to six months.
