I have had no problems getting my small animals altered. I had a Chin. and had her spayed she was fine. You really have to research your vet. Not all vets are good with really small animals. See if you can get some references from something like a 4H club or something. It could have been that your vet is not used to putting something that small under. sorry about your loss
A lot of vets aren't that experienced with small animals. This is mainly b/c most people think they are even more disposable than dogs and cats and would never consider taking them to a vet. I live in a small rural towm with three (now two) vet clinics. I had a pair of Guinea Pigs that started losing all their hair and off to the vet we went. The vet was really amused that someone would bring in Guinea Pigs. He was an old country vet, but he treated them with great care and they made a complete recovery.
I'm sorry about your loss, and know what it feels like to lose a bunny. I just want to ask, however, Why would you want to get him/her fixed anyway? I could understand why if it roamed around like a stray dog and might get another rabbit pregnant of may become pregnant, but I really do hope thats not the case. Rabbits are solitary animals that don't require regular vet visits such as a cat or a dog. And the best way to prevent pregnancy is to house it by itself, which is standard procedure for raising bunnies anyway. Having surgery is always risky, whether it's Lypo-suctioning a human or nutering a rabbit. So if you could please anser that question it would be great. I mean, im not trying to sound rude or degrogatory because I know very little about you. I just would like to know your reasoning. Thanks for taking the time to read this. -Rosie
