The statics aren't 80% anywhere, no matter what age gets cited. Obviously, during the last 1 or 2 decades there was much activism in the US about getting pets spayed (not so much just rabbits, it was aimed primarily at cats and dogs), and during the past 10 years it really had an effect on pet numbers in shelters, but some arguments got repeated over and over, and exaggerated beyond any credibility on the way. Lots of propaganda by well meaning people, but anyone who has to do with rabbits for some time sees that those numbers are pretty much made up - my guess is more like 30% in their lifetime, which is still a very good reason to spay. Risk of the operation is somewhere around 2%, depending on the vet.Hi Butterscotch,
I’m not sure if I want to get her sprayed. It’s a severe operation and has an big impact for her to cut her open fully.
In Germany the statistics are not 80% for her to get cancer if u don’t spray her.
I might get her pregnant once or twice next year to even lower her risk for getting cancer. But only when I know the breeder is taking the rest of her baby’s apart from one back. And we would keep a fourth bunny for us.
