    I just paid $140. BUT before I left they ask me do I want a pain shot that will last for several days. I was shocked that the $140 didnt come with something for pain and they didnt tell me this before neutering him. I also ask them he just got his balls ripped out of him through surgery why would anyone not give him something for pain and they said a lot of people don't pay for it because that was an extra $40 so it cost me $180. A couple of months later he got ear infection. Three meds total one was a shot one was ear drops and one med by mouth almost $200. Between neutered and ear infection my little dog had heart failure that was $1,000 he had to go under oxygen and spend the night in the ER. Now he is on medicine the rest of his life $80 a month but what do we do we love our animals. When my husband died 2014 my little dog was my rock I dropped a lot of tears on top of him while holding him.

    I pay €85/$94 or a buck neuter (but more the bigger your bun is, this is for a dwarf). Doe neuters cost €170/$188. Seeing the amount you paid I'm going to assume you had a doe neutered, in that case what you paid is totally fine.

    Edit: Wait you're talking about balls...You paid this much for a buck? That's quite steep actually.

    You should create a post on the forum, to make sure other people can see and answer. Myself have never breed rabbits and only know a little about rabbit breeding and how doe are supposed to behave.

    So I can’t help you, I hope everything goes well with your doe and hope someone can answer your question.

    My dog was on heart medication for the rest of her life too but she lived a good three years after her diagnosis! We believe she also had cancer but we couldn't treat it or even biopsy her tumor because of her heart failure. Give those meds religiously and your dog could live many more years. My dog was on 3 different daily heart meds and the price got to be too much so my vet offered to price match the cheapest generic drugs I could find online for my dog. I was having a tough time financially back then, so it was an enormous help. You may be able to ask your vet for help if it gets to be too expensive for you too. I am so sorry for the loss of your husband!

    Back on topic... sorry. I was originally quoted $198 for Goose's neuter but the final bill came to exactly $250.

    I think she has this:
    “Intact unspayed female rabbits (does) canundergo periodic false pregnancies, also known as pseudopregnancies. Pseudopregnancies mimic true pregnancies. However, they last only 16-18 days rather than 31-32 days of true pregnancy. The doe will not be receptive to a buck during this time.”
    The best thing you can do is to take her to a vet, specialist to bunnies-exotic animals and after to proceed in spaying, as soon as possible!! It will be good for her health and her future health to be spayed, as the vet also will explain to you!!

    Here in N. California things are pricey . Rabbit neuter can run about $200, Spay about $350, that doesn't include any pre old exam or bloodwork, Thankfully there's a terrific vet in Santa Cruz / Soquel who does a monthly spay neuter clinic in Watsonville , and her prices are very affordable- $75 for neuter and $125 for spay. She foes a LOT of rescue bunnies, bless her! Dr Hilary Stern

    A vet here told my husband $700+ for a doe. I about fell out of my chair! I didn't pay that much for my dogs to be spayed! (DE)

    Years ago my ex wanted to give our daughter a puppy, but we could not afford to spay her. He contacted a rescue organization, and they sent her in to be spayed by their vet with their animals, which they got done at big discount, and we paid the rescue for the spay, which was affordable through them.

    I have 2 bucks and they cost $140 each. However, I called around alot before I found this price. Most wanted to charge $300 per rabbit....even a discount clinic was over $200!

    mine was around $425 for the whole spay package, however that didn’t include the prior exam and blood work panel. the exam was $80 and the blood work was around $200. in total spaying my rabbit was around $700. i live in new york city where everything is ten times more expensive

    Blood work? The vet I used didnt even do a Check up. He never saw my rabbit before I just called up and they said yeah we do it bring him in I dropped him off pick him up that afternoon it's a wonder he didn't kill my rabbit though I'll never go back to that vet. Thumper got a ear infection right after that and he treated him with the wrong stuff I took Thumper to another doctor that does Exotics and now we are working on getting him back healthy.

    woah that’s really fishy. they’re supposed to have at least an exam before to make sure they’re healthy, and the blood work is done to make sure their organs are running fine and all that

    Hm, can those who got a red flag due that routine bloodwork speak up? Would be interesting if it really is a useful filter, or just a another point on the bill.

    Don't think my vet did any, brought my girl in and collected it 3 hours later, everything fine. I'm sure they examine them before surgery, but I wonder how much is done that doesn't make a real difference.

    my vet did the bloodwork panel to make sure the kidneys were running well and for other stuff that i don’t remember. it wasn’t optional for us to do, we had to do it.

    Well, yes, but the question was if anyone experienced that the vet refrained from surgery because of the bloodwork results.

    My vet didn't even want to do bloodwork but I insisted because I didn't know how old she was, and she had never went to the vet before (to my knowledge). But the checkup was mandatory. The prices weren't terrible but now when I take my other doe I will be going to our low-cost spay/neuter clinic. The regular vet told me it was $98 for the spay, $90 for the bloodwork, and then they added on another $30 because she was an "older rabbit" they told me she was about 4. IN WHAT WORLD IS THAT OLD?????? The low-cost clinic told me $45 which is very cheap.
