Rabbit neutering in Teddington

August 1, 2022

Rabbits are famous for their reproductive abilities – and it’s no wonder, as females reach sexual maturity at the very young age of between four and eight months (depending on size).

If you keep a female and male rabbit together, it’s very likely she’ll become pregnant, so you need to think carefully about whether or not you want to get your rabbit neutered.

If you don’t want baby rabbits…

If you’re happy with your current number of pets and have no plans to breed them in the future, it’s probably best to get your rabbit spayed.

Simply book an appointment and our Teddington vets can make the necessary arrangements to neuter your rabbit.

Or if you’d like further advice…

You may be unsure of what the process of neutering involves, or whether there are different options – or you might be undecided about whether to proceed with rabbit neutering at all.

In this situation, our vet nurses are on hand to offer advice and support. You can arrange to chat to our head nurse at Alpha Vets or any of our vet nursing team – just give us a call and we’ll let you know when they’re next available.

What if my rabbit is already pregnant?

 Rabbits tend to mate in spring, when the days are longer. If you suspect yours might be pregnant, there are a few symptoms you can look out for, such as:

  • A more rounded belly than normal
  • Mood swings and not wanting to be held
  • Pulling fur from the abdomen, sides and dewlap to line the nest – though this is unlikely to occur until a few hours before giving birth

If you have any concerns at all about the health of your rabbit, give us a call on 0208 943 2303 and we can arrange a consultation with one of our vet nurses or expert vets.
