My vet was able to estimate Powders age at around 4 years when I got him, I believe from the teeth. He's been seeing rabbits for 25+ years. He estimated Stickers was 4-6 months from her size/breed.

My vet charges $30 for a checkup, $95 for a neuter, $136 for a spay, then pain meds are $6 a dose for metacam. Pre-surgery health screening is included in the neuter/spay costs, but I don't think he does blood work unless requested and that would be extra.

back to teeth and age... rabbit teeth, like horse teeth, grow for the entire length of a rabbit's life. The enamel on them is constantly being produced and laid down as the teeth grow so even old rabbits tend to have a relatively white color. I have seen 13 year rabbits with nice white teeth... in fact, I am trying to remember seeing any rabbit with yellowy teeth... maybe. But that may not be a sign of age rather than some metabolic change in its system. I would not rely on this as an age determination.
