It is your personal preference whether or not to get your rabbit fixed. It may prevent hormone related aggression, but it may also prevent different illnesses a non-spayed/non-neutered rabbit could get. Please keep in mind though, that a fully intact rabbit can live a perfectly long, healthy life just the same as a fixed one.
"At what age can I get my rabbit spayed/neutered?"
Rabbits can be spayed/neutered after reaching maturity, usually between 4-6 months. Larger/Giant breeds may take a few more months to reach full maturity.
"Why should I get my rabbit spayed/neutered?"
There are many answers to this question, however, mainly people fix their rabbit to prevent hormonal actions from occurring.
"How do I know my rabbits hormones are acting up?"
There are many signs as to how you will know. Some may include:
1. ) Growling/boxing 2.) Territorial nipping/biting 3.) Spraying of urine
4.) Mounting objects 5.) Destructive chewing (mainly found in females)
6.)Aggressive/ possessive lunging/biting 7.) Loss of litterbox habits 8.) Circling
Rabbit Uterine Cancer
A non-spayed doe (female) become at risk for Uterine Cancer by reaching 2 years old. Each year after that, the risk increases greatly. Uterine Cancer is a malignant tumor(s) found in the endometrial lining of the uterus. Please keep in mind though, it is NOT guaranteed that a doe will develop this. An intact rabbit can live a long, healthy live as well and not ever develop this type of cancer.
