My vet is happy to spay up until 7 years if they are in reasonable health, but that is their cut off point.

We are collecting an 8 and a half year old unspayed female tomorrow :?

I have my own thoughts on this but was just wondering what others would do :)

i know nothing so i won't attempt advice or even an opinion.

tabby is 2 1/2 and still shell-shocked from her spay on wednesday.

i dont know either but can I ask why

is it to stop her from getting prenant

or


for medical reasons


if for medical reasons definately

if so she wont get pregnant i would have to think very carefully about it

(think thats clear)

i think if she's in good health and it'll give her the chance to have husbun and a happier life then all good. another year won't make a difference. but it's up to you liz.

I'd like to sit on the fence :lol: but will stick my neck out and say that I don't think I would risk it, unless there were huge obvious benefits from doing so.

I know there is a risk of uterine cancer but, by that age, there are a whole other range of age-related conditions she could develop which could also be potentially life threatening. It seems a pretty big risk to take to rule out just one possibility iyswim.

I hope I've explained myself clearly. :oops:

I personally wouldn't risk it. There's no reason why she can't be bonded with a neutered buck as she is.

Could you get your vets to try to do a conscious x-ray of her womb to check for any abnormal changes?

VikkiVet
11-12-2009, 11:12 AM
I probably wouldn't risk it. As she is coming to you, i am assuming she has some other medical problems, which may well cause significant complications. If she has made it to 8 years old without cancer - can you get an ultrasound? - she's no more likely to get it now. If she isnt already bonded, and its aggressive etc or showing other hormone-related behaviours, she might be fine with a neutered, chilled out buck.

I think if I were to risk it then I would run the battery of tests first to ensure it was the right decision.

Hugo's There
11-12-2009, 11:22 AM
My opinion is not to get her spayed.

In my opinion if she is suffering from cancer that chances are it would have spread by this age anyway, also the heart and other major organs may well be compromised due to old age.

I feel that it would be better to give her a happy 6months, a year, however long she has got rather than to risk loosing her straight away now she has been rescued :)

Hopefully she will be bonded to one of our elderly males, we have other old unspayed females that have bonded quite happily :)

I also want to add that i have had rabbits put through all the preop tests in the past before routine ops and still lost them as there are so many abnormalities that cannot be detected until PM :( And although it isn't about the money we have to be practical, we can't pay out 150 in tests just to find we can't have it done, when that money could be going towards a sick rabbit.

Suzanne

I personally wouldn't spay a bunny that old. She should bond ok with a netuered placid male without the op. And I think it's too old to spay for health reasons.

RubyTed
11-12-2009, 12:21 PM
I wouldn't have it done. So long as she's not annoyingly horny there is no reason she can't be bonded with a buck.:)

It's not worth it, as, yes...she might get cancer, but she's not got it for 8 years, so the chance is slim (I hope). She's far more likely to have complications during the spay than cancer.

Whatever you decide I'm sure it'll be for the best! :D

I think the chance of uterine cancer at 8 years is around 80% :( So the chances are she actually will have it, but my view is that by that age spaying is not likely to cure it if she does have it because it will more than likely to have spread to her lungs, liver, stomach or kidneys :?

Emmy lou was spayed at 7 years, she had a tumour which was removed but it had already spread and we lost her a couple of months later :(

Bluesmum

I doesn't seem worth putting her through it, as like you have said, if she was going to develop cancer, she will have had it by now, and it probably would have spread.

Hugo's There, your decision about your older bun seems the most reasonable and kindest option considering her time of life.

Thought I would update this thread, as once again things haven't worked out as I had hoped :roll: :lol:

When Missus arrived it was clear that she was extremely hormonal. She is very aggressive and regularly pulling out fur to build nests :shock: She is actually the most hormonal rabbit I have ever met. I feel so sorry for her that she has been that unsettled for 8 and half years :(

She has had another check with the vet today and they have agreed that she needs to be spayed and is booked in for next Monday. The vet thinks that she has cystic ovaries as they feel enlarged :? We wont know for certain until she is opened up but given that she needs spaying anyway there was no point doing dignostics first.

The vet has warned me that the operation is high risk because of her age and we have no idea what they will find until she is opened up but we all feel we have very little choice, otherwise she is never going to be able to be happy and relaxed.

Despite her atrocious behaviour I have developed a big soft spot for this old girl :love:

She has been used for breeding thats about all I know about her. She was at her previous home ( a breeder) from the age of 2 years. Before that I have no idea.

I really hope she gets through it and is able to settle down. She is always on the go. I have only seen her sleep a few times and she snores like an old man :lol:

aww, bless her. If she was previously breeding then i'd suspect she is cystic because she has stopped breeding and so is experiencing hormone overload (thats not a technical term.....cant be bothered to go look it up! :roll:)

The reason I ask is because I had a "breeder" tell me this once.

She didn't even make it to the proper GA she died just with sedation. They are doing a PM but more to look at her uterus and overies than to give any answers as to why we lost her today, although I am hoping for an answer there too. But as the vet pointed out when they go like that it is often for subclinical reasons.

I am just hoping they find something wrong with her overies and uterus so at least I will know I did the right thing by sending her for the op :(

You really musn't blame yourself at all. Perfectly healthy rabbits don't sometimes pull through, there isn't any way of knowing, it was her time.

Hugo's There
18-01-2010, 02:22 PM
I have her PM results and they are not very good. The poor girl, neither I nor the vet know how she was still alive :(:(

Missus had a huge uterine tumour that had spread to her liver. She had more than one tumour on her liver, one of which had burst destroying part of her liver and causing a internal bleeding. Her abdomen was full of blood :(:(

How did she manage to munch her breakfast and hop about in the large run yesterday :shock:

Her ovaries were fine, so the behaviour and fur pulling must have been pain related as she would have been suffering terribly :( But we don't understand why she took the time to make such lovely nests from the fur:?

So at least I know now that they would have put her to sleep as soon as they opened her up anyway and there was nothing they could have done. In fact sending her for the op probably meant her suffering ended more quickly as she was hiding her problems so well.

If feel awful that she was suffering so much but her behaviour prevented us from being able to handle her and examine her properly :(

I had a real soft spot for her :love::(

18-01-2010, 02:27 PM

Even a month ago when I collected her, she must have already been very poorly indeed and there was no way her behaviour showed just how ill she must have been.

She didn't even seem old - she seemed quite sprightly for an 8 year old and was humping poor Sunshine the minute she got out of the carrier.

Their ability to hide pain is amazing in one way, but very worrying at the same time. :(

Sorry to hear about Misssus :cry:
She probably wasnt in that much pain for that long - discomfort certainly, but the liver rupture would have occured minutes before the sedation at the most. there arent that many pain receptors in deep internal structures either - most illness comes from nausea and secondary signs. If her ovaries were unremarkable then she could have just been hormonal from being pregnant and lactationg a lot of her life, and some hormones are produced by the uterus itself. i dont know if that would cause her behavioural signs tho. She probably had a good run around beacuse it was the happiest she's ever been, despite the discomfort and pain. At least she went with sedation so pretty calm and peacefully. Hugs for you and Steve xx

I doubt it would have been where she was before. No more pain or suffering now. Bless her little heart. Binky free little one :love:

After reading this thread through, I am inclined to agree with those that think that the rupture occured only very recently. I am so pleased that she came to you and had the chance to run around for a whole day, she must have really enjoyed that.

You do a wonderful job Liz, every bun that comes to you has had an awful life and you dedicate yourself to making their last days/weeks happy, safe and pain free as possible.

You set yourself up for heartbreak everytime and this is sadly the load you must bear to allow these poor animals some happy time.

I take my hat off to you, you must never blame yourself. You must know that you do everything humanly possible to give them a quality of life they have never know for as long as possible.
My thoughts are with you.

Awww No, I'm so sorry to read this Liz :(

Sadly her time had come and it's good to know she probably went peacefully under the sedation. Sounds like she deserved that at the very least.

So sorry this has been so traumatic, but from her point of view, she fell asleep peacefully after being in pain for a very long time - if you hadn't gone ahead with the spay she would have had more time to suffer. :cry:

so very sorry for your loss Liz but at least she is now out of pain and you weren't to know how poorly she was.
You did your very best for her and getting her neutered was because you wanted her to have a long and happy life if you hadn't she would have been in more pain so you did the right thing for her,

Thank you for all your kind words. I am really pleased that she isn't suffering any more too, just wish she had been able to tell me sooner how ill she was.

It was very quiet in the shed this evening with out her grunting and growling at me, she was a real character :(

I'm so sorry to read this - the poor girl! It is incredible that she was still moving around at all with the results of the pm! At least she died loved and wanted - not as an unwanted and unloved rabbit that had outlived her 'usefulness'. :(

This thread is a tribute to her in a way Liz, as everyone has read it and cared and felt for her and she will be missed xx

((( hugs ))) to you Liz, am so sorry. But don't blame yourself for goodness sake, you did all you could for her, bless her.

She probably had a good run around beacuse it was the happiest she's ever been.

Totally agree with this - I bet the little mite is so grateful for the time she had with you, it allowed her to relax and drift off feeling loved and special. So sorry to hear you've lost her, I'm glad the pm has given you some answers and reassured you that you did the right thing. RIP beautiful girl xx

Im sorry you lost her but at least she is in no pain anymore. I wish it was common knowledge to neuter bunnies as it would stop so much suffering. I knew nothing about it until I joined this forum and dread to think of how the future would have been for Fizz if I hadn't joined!

Binky free sweet heart.

I'm glad you now have some answers, and you know you couldn't have done anything more for her. It's so sad when a bun doesn't make it but you gave her a warm loving home & yummy food in her last weeks, I'm sure she was very greatful to be taken in by you.

I'm very sorry for your loss :cry:

Rest in Peace Missus :love:
