I got my male rabbit neuterd a month and a few days ago, and I was wondering if it's safe now to put him with my unspayed rabbit. I called the vetinary hospital and asked if it was ok today, and they said it was safe to.
However, I've searched online and read from sites and other people that I best wait 6-8 weeks. Does anyone know which information is correct?
Yes, I already set up an appointment for her next month. I just wanted to know if it's safe to to put them together now.Thank you all for helping me :]
I would probably just wait. Unspayed girls can be more aggressive and territorial than even intact boys. If you're really itching to put them together you could look up the introduction guidelines online and do a couple quick meet-and-greets before her surgery. It's still a bit of an unnecessary risk though. If one of them got seriously injured it could add to costs and delay the female's surgery.

I have always been the odd one out on this, as I successfully bonded 2 pairs of neutered males to unspayed females. The were both spayed after bonding and I never encountered any problems. As a matter of fact, the girls seems to recover faster, being that they had a bonded mate (as where the single girls I have fostered did not recover as quickly. That could have been a coincidence.) I know that, typically, you will have better results if both bunnies are altered, but again, I never had a problem.
That's really interesting .
You do know your bunnies best Jackie, so it's definately your call. I did meet-and-greets before my boy was neutered (there's only so much that can happen sans uterus). I didn't pre-bond them or anything, but it worked out fine for me. Luckily my girl was suuuuuuper chill.
