I just had my 4 month male bunny neutered and it cost $224. He did well and did not stay overnight. I am getting ready to have my 5 month old female spayed and the cost estimate is $325. The original first visit before the neuter/spay is $50. Keep in mind, I live in the Washington DC Metro area and everything is a bit more expensive here. Others are telling me I was price gouged, but the vet doing it was previously a vet I was a vet tech for and I trust her very much with my buns.

Where I live, it cost around $80 to $100, depending on the vet. Before the spay or neuter, the rabbit has to have a physical exam, which cost around $45. For people on low incomes, they can get their rabbit spayed/neutered for $60 through a special program.

I’m from pa and I was quoted around 500 for a male and 700 for a female plus a pre exam from regular vets. I got mine done through animal friend .. the waiting list was 4 months long but I paid 80 for each female and 60 for each male

A normal visit due to GI stasis, mites, or something like that costs around 50€, spaying a doe 120€.

Some time a go I took a dog in for some months, found a tumor and had it removed, that was 250€.

In my part of Idaho, US, a regular office visit check up is a flat $45 to $55, depending on vet office, any additional shots, meds or tests cost extra on top of that. A spay is around $170 for a female and a neuter is $140 for a male. The flat office visit/exam may or may not be applied to that as well.

The first time they see that animal, the flat fee exam tends to apply but if it's being seen for something else like a spay, fairly soon after the first visit, though they'll do a quick exam before doing anything else, they don't usually charge the exam fee.

Our clinic in WI, one of best or recommended rabbit-savvy clinic in the area, charges between 300-400 for spays and neuters. A pre-op CBC/BMP bloodwork panel is done to evaluate blood-clotting capability, liver/kidney function, hydration, etc. Their surgery care and CVT monitoring pre- and post-op is optimal. So the price of ~350 includes hospitalization care for several hours, blood panel diagnostics, etc. Wellness exams range around 70, comprehensive "could be trouble here" exams slightly more as the DVM spends more time with your bunny. The clinics staff on payroll is more than a handful. More rural DVMs do charge less.

A shelter likely wouldn't do diagnostic bloodwork for the hundreds of surrendered rabbits they alter! A rescue organization may also align with a DVM and have sp/euters done for a lower rate when multiple rescue buns are brought in on one surgery day. I have seen alteration prices of $65-$100 for multiple buns brought in. Thirteen years ago we paid around 250 ea/ for 19 rabbits to be altered.

True, depending on expertise and clinic staff, & equipment, prices will vary in different regions. I hear you, Shayna, on east coast locations. Varies greatly, tis true, Alyssa & Bugs.

As a precaution our DVM has implemented radiographs to their sp/euter protocol when 2 guinea pigs died in surgery from respiratory maladies, and one of our Flemish rescues died from cardiac arrest at the end of his neuter. Less than 1/4th normal lung tissue upon necropsy, perhaps combined with stress. Stress can be fatal to a bun so keep that in mind.

When you acquire or adopt/rescue a rabbit your family furry will cost money for the duration of the next 13 years. Our eldest buns typically live 13 1/2 years, plus. Adopting a neutered or spayed rabbit is beneficial.

I’m from the uk and live in London and to get your bunnies fixed is no more than £50.00 (about $65 usd ) I can’t believe how much more expensive it is is the US!
Seems very expensive to me too! I'm getting my Dutch boy done in a few weeks for about $65.

Sorry, forgot about his first check up, which cost $52, so he's probably going to be a bit over $115 or so.

In Greece the cost for a check up for bunnies is around 25€, 30€ or 40€, for neuter/spay it is from 80-90€ to 150-160€, it depends if it is a big vet clinic or a smaller (so the check up or neuter/spay will be more expertise in a big vet clinic)... In our vet I usually pay for a basic check-up with vaccination 25€.. The neuter costs 120€ included the medication I took at home. A surgery she had, an eye removal, costed also, if I remember well, around 130€ with the meds (antibiotics)! For an x-ray I usually pay 20€... the last time we went to the vet because she was sick and not eating, I payed the first day 70€ (2 x-rays 40€ and 30€, For check up, pain killers, fluids), and the next day after finding out she had dental issue so she had surgery- sharpen her teeth- that costed 80€, with the medication I took home the total must was around 100-120€.

In Denmark it is around 150 USD for a neuter and 300 USD for a spay at a decent vet. My 2 bunnies are getting spayed in less than a week :)

For me it cost around 75 € neutering but this was not on a rabbit savy vet. They was cat experts instead. But the veterinarian was used with the process of neutering but not spaying on bunnies.

Otherwise it would had cost around 120€ or 240€ depending on being a neuter or spay [emoji5]
