  Rabbit desexing

Your rabbit (either male or female) would have a surgery when it was desexed. You need to check the wound area daily to make sure that it has not become infected or swollen. If this occurs, you should take your bunny to the vet clinics immediately.

The sutures, or stitches, do not have to be removed but will dissolve over time. When you get home with your rabbit continue to monitor it to make sure that it is behaving and eating normally. 

A post-operative rabbit should not stop eating. Fresh Dandelion leaves are always appreciated!


A green mark will be tattooed in your rabbit’s left ear to indicate it has been desexed.
