Desexing your Rabbit

At Acorn,we frequently perform spay (in females) and castration surgeries in rabbits. Uterine adenocarcinoma is a common cancer of the uterus of adult female rabbits. This terrible disease can be prevented by spaying your rabbit from the age of 4-5 months. Spaying also prevents unwanted pregnancies and aggressive behaviour.

Castration of male rabbits will help to prevent spraying of the urine (to mark territory) and unwanted aggressive behaviour. Castration will also help to prevent possible future problems in the reproductive tract.  Male rabbits can be desexed from 4 months of age.
