Hey peeps, does anyone know any vet clinics in NYC metro area who can spay and neuter? We acquired a male and female bunny recently (coconut and chestnut ) and we really want to neutralize them before chestnut gets pregnant i tried calling several clinics already and they are charging 300-400 bucks for each of em Anyone knows any good clinic which does neutering and spaying for less than $150-200 in the city area? thanks for all your help

Welcome!  I recommend contacting the NYC House Rabbit Society for this:

www.rabbitcare.org/

They have a vet list and I'm sure they have already "vetted" them and can steer you in the absolute right direction.

Keep them separated until you can get them fixed - bunnies can get pregnant VERY easily and very quickly.

Being in large cities often will raise the price but hopefully you can find one more affordable that is bunny qualified. Use the house rabbit society's question list for vets to make sure the vet knows what they are doing first though - an inexperienced vet makes the surgery a lot more dangerous for your pair.

The Animal Medical Center and other vets in Manhattan (as listed on the HRS site) is probably more convenient in terms of location but the vet I go to is in Long Island, just over the Queens border. The vets at Catnip & Carrots (no dogs) are very experienced and caring. The cost to neuter my bun last summer was just over $200. They would be a good choice if you had access to a car and could take your buns to New Hyde Park.

I don't want to get in trouble for having my first post as a strong recommendation...BUT...I adopted my dwarf bunny from NY AC&C on East 110th Street. I promised them I would take him to a specialized vet within a few days and they provided some good recommendations.

IF you live near or around the UES, I can't endorse Dr Anthony Pilny enough....I can't speak to his price on neutering, as my rabbit was already neutered before I got him, but Dr Pilny does tons of volunteer work for the shelter and is known for his expertise in small animals, exotics. He cares a great deal for rabbits and fosters several in his own office. If he isn't in your ballpark, I would bet he can give you info on who can help.

We go every 6-8 weeks to have Kelsey's nails clipped (mani/pedi) and the DR does that himself---not interns, etc. I couldn't be happier with the recommendation I received and I feel confident passing that on to you.

(Just to be clear---I am new here---have been reading for months and following the "site update" estimates, which have gone longer than anticipated...wanted to join sooner, but kept waiting for site to be ready so I could upload photos, etc....)

I know there are other qualified vets in the Manhattan area...in fact, the document linked is the *exact* document I got when I adopted and I know the shelter stands behind every doctor on that list so dial around!! I chose Dr Pilny because he is close to my home and I have had nothing but positive experiences...and I have met others within my immediate area who are also his clients, with great reviews so I pass that along with confidence.

Best of luck to you and your new bunnies!!
