a delicate question!

Post by opas » Fri 13 Feb 2015 17:17

This is a little delicate.....we have a Lop eared male rabbit aged about 8 months. He is starting to get frisky. We dont really want to have him 'done'. Is there another option?
we have given him a teddy bear for now to stop him getting annoyed.

The thought of a young frisky male rabbit ravishing a teddy bear boggles the mind too much. A visit to the vet is called for. :lol:

Im not normally one to preach this but there are a lot of rabbits being given away left right and center. If you do breed from him before giving him the snip, just make sure the bunnies have homes to go to or you may find you've got a lot to give away.
I'm def not anti breeding but I do think it requires some thought before one does breed any animals.
Good luck. P.s. I had lots of guides pigs and a rabbit as a child, all the boys were castrated, in and out in the same day, job done.

Thanks for the advice, definatly do not want a house full of rabbits, we were hoping to find him a girlfriend who has been sterilised( not sure how possible thatwill be)

We are going to have a word with the vet during the week.

Good luck. Normally (although not always) it's the male that gets castrated as it's a lot easier than the female (less invasive).
