Iv got a female mixbreed rabbit shes just over a year now. I was going to let her have a litter but theres too many rabbits and other animals going into shelters and stuff. So Iv been considering getting her spayed as aparantly they can live longer and have less chance ov ovum cancer and unterine cancer. I was wondering tho does anyone know what age is it too old to gt her done. I know you can do them from 6 months. And if she was to have a litter would it be risky if i done it after that..? Please tell me if you know. Shes going 2 the vet next week for her mixie vaccination so ill chack then aswell. But any answers wolud be appreciated Thank you xx
Since you're having trouble with finding a warm enough place for your other rabbits, I would definitely have her spayed, or get your rabbit hutches in a warm building. What do you have for sheds, or do you have a barn?
No i havnt been having trouble finding palces for rabbits i meen thats whats happening loadz of rabbits are being dumped in shelters because there arnt enough homes and ill just be making it worse if i let my rabbit have a litter sorry i confused you lol thnx tho and yes shes got a massive hutch in the shed xx
Sorry, my feeble brain again!! I was confusing you with Sweetiemommyof2! My advice, if there are so many rabbits out there, is to spay her. It sounds like the rabbit population is quite large where you live; so you might as well try and slow it down a bit, just my opinion.
ILoveDogsxxx, if you have a lot of myxomatosis around, be extremely vigilant about who and what you let visit and touch the rabbit. The virus is highly contagious, and can easily be brought in by accident. DO NOT let your rabbit out of the hutch, in the grass untill she's been vaccinated.
Really Omg i knew it was bad but not that bad she has had a vaccination but her booster is due. My next door neghbour just took hers 2 for hers and we go to the same vets and she said the vet told her to get it done every 6 months now where as before we were told once a year! I kno its bad as i have seen all the rabbits on the roundabout with red puffy eyes..dnt worry were taking her down this friday she will definatly have it done xx
