    Hello all

    Do you know how long will female rabbit heal after spay surgery? And how long will she go back to normal and cuddly after spay surgery?

    My bunny was spayed 12 days ago and she is still sulking and upset, so she will not ask for hugs/cuddles yet. Is this normal? What is your experience?

    Can take 2 months until everything go back again.

    I know when I neutered Odin, he was a real devil. He lunged, growled and threw toys in his cage during night time.

    Before neuter and after neuter he’s the same cuddly, docile bunny that let me pick him up and handle him however I want. So only time he showed aggression was during the 6 weeks after neutering

    So wait a bit longer and she will come back again to your normal bunny

    I like to think that they are just mad at you for taking them to that scary place and they had to take a long nap and they woke up feeling weird and all they know is that you took them and left them. They just have to get over it lol

    Thank you! She’s not yet becoming her cuddly self yet, and we miss it! It’s been 2.5weeks post spay surgery and she is still angry with us. She already licks us here and there, but no cuddle yet. Hope she returns to be cuddly very soon!!
