Hi guys. Just realised the rabbit is actually about 4 months old so will arrange for it tomorrow on Monday. I think it seems like a good idea and the risks are clearly far outweighed by the pros :).

This is looking like a strong contender at the moment :

or this one:

the first is a gold rated rabbit renowned vet, whereas the second is my local vet that I use for vaccs and have had work experience with before as well as them looking after my previous rabbit at a very bad time in her life well. I trust them but I appreciate they aren't rabbit savvy as such. What would you guys go for? Positive experience or reputable rabbit vet?

Yes, if you can do anton vets, I've only ever read good things about John Chitty and his experience with rabbits. I believe he may also be a specialist, from what I remember.

Hi again I was just reading up about aftercare and it says that not only will she need to be kept inside for a little while afterwards, but also, she cannot be kept with another rabbit until healed. She is very close to her older 5 year old rabbit friend so I just thought I would check to confirm that they cannot be kept together until she is healed. I believe it is to stop mounting which could cause internal bleeding :) thanks again!

That's not correct, if she is bonded then her mate should go to the vet with her and they should keep them together. If that isn't possible, they should be put in adjacent cages so they can still see and smell each other. Never split up a bonded pair.

Make sure you take your rabbits together to the vet that is very important. When they come home watch them very very closely, as long the other rabbit doesn’t upset your newly spayed rabbit with any disruptive behaviour like mounting then they should be fine to stay together. If he/she starts being rough with her or encouraging her to run about then it is best for them to be in separate cages/enclosures right next to each other so they can still smell and interact with each other. I had to do this and then there were no problems when I put them back together once my females had recovered.

@Doorman I think everybody has told you everything you need to know, but I just wanted to let you know, that you spay females, not neuter. I hope your bunny does great during the procedure!
