I wanted to know if i should spay my holland lop.
and if I do, would it be dangerous?
He is about 1 yr old.....
I am also an advocate of spaying and neutering. Though males don't have the same cancer risks as female bunnies do, there are some behaviorial benefits as well as if you ever decide to get him a buddy, it can make the bonding process easier as territorial and mating urges will be subdued a bit. It is VERY important though that you find a rabbit-savvy vet to do the surgery. Rabbits react differently to anesthesia than cats and dogs and there are things like 'NOT FASTING a rabbit before surgery that will be understood by a rabbit-savvy vet.
Do you have a rabbit-savvy vet or do you need help in finding one?
Thanks for the advice. Our vet for dogs knows a lot about bunnies too. We are sure she can give him the right anestesia.
