Surgery Information

Animal Kingdom Veterinary Hospital highly recommends spaying and neutering for the health and longevity of your rabbit companion. We can spay or neuter rabbits starting at around six months of age, depending on breed. If you are unsure of you rabbit's age or gender, we offer free gender checks by technician appointment.

Rabbit pre and post surgical care differs from that of other species. Unlike cats and dogs, rabbits do NOT need to fast prior to surgery. In fact, we want to make sure their gut keeps moving. We offer and encourage eating as soon as they are awake enough. Please bring a goodie bag to their surgery drop off appointment that includes:

  • a small amount of their pellets (1-2 tablespoons)
  • some of their hay (handful)
  • favorite greens and/or fruits

Healing time after surgery is generally 7-10 days. During this time pets need to be kept confined to a small cage or room indoors. Sorry, no bunny "binkies" allowed. Rabbits generally do not require a cone or e-collar, but we do recommend checking the incision site daily for swelling or discharge.
