 i have a male, one year old dutch, who, has a breeding obsession(if you know what i mean). when he gets very excited, he sprays pee all over the house, so now he has to live outside during the summer. he is also not really allowed to play in the house, even though he loves it so much. my parents do let him play in my room though. he plays alot outside on his harness and leash too. we would LOVE to have him as a house rabbit, but because of this, he cannot be. would neutering fix his hormone problems?

Neutering should definitely stop the spraying problem. I would get it done as soon as possible.

It should help. He's still young enough that neutering and the reduction of hormones may stop this behavior completely, or at the very least, lessen it.

I third that! Get it done ASAP and he will probably be a much better rabbit! Though in the future be careful not to come home with the smell of other rabbits as that MAY cause him to spray. Every rabbit is different though. If you need a referral for a rabbit vet in your area then your local House Rabbit Society should have a list. Just go to www.rabbit.org and on the righthand side there is a link to both Chapters and Vets!

I have a very simular problem but I believe it is because we added an unspayed female to our household and he has just been going crazy. I have also been forced to move her into "his" room since my father did not like her in the kitchen. He likes to spray all over me, it's quite gross. So I know what you are going through. I'm getting him nuetered in the next couple weeks so I know that it will cut down on his behavior.

My rabbit has always been a sweetheart but earlier today he jumped over me when I was laying down and sprayed urine all over me. I put him back in his cage to calm down a bit and started calling more vets.

RED FLAG: If they say nuetering a rabbit is not a normal procedure...

yeah. buttons had problems like that. still does. when he sees my legs he tries to hump them...i know...creepy. he never used to act like that is just when he hit about 5 months. i think its some kind of rabbit puberty thing. oh well. looks like neutering is the only answer.....

SirThumpsey is correct... neutering (and spaying) is a routine surgery. Some vets might try to discourage you, but I feel that only shows that they are not experienced or comfortable performing the surgery. You want a vet who knows what he/she is doing and is confident about their abilities. Do you have a vet for your bun or do you need help locating one in your area?

I adopted a rescue bun who was 4 to 5 years old. Within a week of his neuter, he completely stopped spraying. I'm told it can take longer than that for them to complletely stop.
If the vet tells you not to feed or water the rabbit before surgery - find a different vet.

rabbit.org has a database of vets if you're having a hard time finding one!

my max sprayed a LOT until I got him neutered. He's a year old, like your dutch, and the surgery totally changed it.

Keep us updated. At rabbit.org, they also have a great section about vets (as katie mentioned), along with screening questions, pre- post surgery advice,etc. http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/...euter.html

my pain in the butt male rabbit, he's 5 months old sprayed me today...in the face, i am ticked off at him to say the least. i wanted to get my girls done first but i think im moving him up on the list to get fixed. i am gonna be so broke when this is over.

my rabbits, 7 of them, live in the same room, a fairly large room each in their own cage, could being around other males be setting him off? Phoebo is pretty good around the others but I think his bigger brother and him are in a alpha contest, there is also one female, also 5 months in the room, my other girl lives in my room, he's never shown interest in her but maybe soemthing i dont see can set him off too?
