Advice on Spaying Female Rabbits (Does)

This should be done from 6 months of age. The uterus and ovaries are removed under general anaesthetic.

The rabbit is normally only at the surgery for the day of the operation.

Reasons to spay:

  • You do not need to worry about your doe becoming pregnant if living with a male rabbit
  • At least 50{21162e236376257ee52a7926ec0828dc318205a3520b37a01938bce2672e6500} of female rabbits die from uterine or ovarian tumours so spaying prevents this.
  • Female rabbits are often moody and aggressive around their seasons, which occur every 3 weeks. Spaying will stop these hormonal changes and improve the overall temperament of the rabbit which helps younger children enjoy them.
  • A spayed rabbit is easier to litter train as they are less likely to mark their territory.
