You might want to try the humane society. They offer spay and neuters for a much less expensive price. My vet quoted me $500 for a spay. I called the human society and it was $90. Quite a difference. And, they do SO many per year, so they are experienced. Something you might want to check out if you have one (HS) in your area.

Both my bunnies had the neuter done today. Now they are resting. It cost me MYR 350 to fix both, which is roughly USD 83.

The doc gave briefing prior the surgery and said there were 50% chance of the bunnies allergic to the anesthetic that could result in death and also 50% chance the bunnies could still reproduce after neuter.

I blinked my eyes for few sec...

:eek: WOW...!! Why even have it done? 50% chance it doesn't work and they could die? I don't like those odds. I hope your buns are doing well after their surgery. Perhaps there is a better vet in your area for the future.

Such an odd right? I dunno if 50% is medical theory or what but in reality, could be like only lesser than 10% of such tragedy would happen. That's rather more comforting.

My buns are doing well. They may be less energetic but they are eating and drinking which is good sign.

I don't even know what to say to that o_O. House Rabbit Society gives a mortality rate of 0.1% due to complications from anesthesia when done by a properly experienced rabbit vet. As for the "50% chance they could still reproduce," the vet is wrong in the other direction (as well as leaving out the other half of that caveat) - it takes 6-8 weeks for a male rabbit's hormones to fully dissipate after a neuter and during that time, they can still potentially impregnate an unspayed female. After 8 weeks, though, none of them should be able to reproduce.

Oh well probably. Both the vets look young and could be intern, I was in direct contact with their professor and perhaps he would have explained better.

Anyway. 2nd day after the surgery, they looked mighty fine. I came home in the evening to find they have devoured all the pellets, vege and alfalfa hay. They still not keen with the Timothy hay.

Hi,

Can I ask where in London you go because our vet charged £90!

Thanks so much
At Vets4Pets, a spay costs £60 and a neuter was £40. But one of my buns was adopted from Pets at Home and with adoption, they give you a voucher for free a neuter or spay with Vets4Pets.
They did a super job, and the price included two post op appointments and pain medication for a few days following the procedure.

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.
Hi there! Would you share which vet you used for your little guy? I'm not too far from Mechanicsburg. How was the experience? TIA!

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.
I just had a quote for my male, 180.00
About 325 .00 for female. Your in the ballpark.
Also had a quote for 225 for him. Everywhere is different

Jeesh, most of you americans pay outraging big numbers for bun fixing. I hope that the local salaries can match those bills...
Our local vet asks for a neuter 45€ and a spay 75€.

I'm in Alberta, our prices are pretty close. And they don't do a prep visit. Just drop them off and pick them up. They can see if their healthy enough when dropped off.
