I've been ringing round to find how much local vets are charging for neutering and also trying to find out if they do this on a regular basis. I've rung 7 so far.

I've been astounded at the difference in pricing.

A female spay cost has ranged from 55 to 119 :shock:

A male castration 49 to 100

What do I make of this!!!!!!!!

Lots of vets charge different prices.

You need to ask about their success rates, how many they have lost during the operations, what their aftercare is etc. :wave:

I would suggest going for the one that comes with a good rabbit vet (normally by recommendation). Prices can vary wildly, and sometimes can be a reflection on the skill of the vet, but not always.

As how many they've done.

If they've more experience then I'd go there regardless of price.

I'd ask if that includes painkillers to take home for a few days afterwards (some vets don't include this, it is essential!), how many rabbit neuters do they do on average a month, what problems should you look out for afterwards etc

The costs do vary but some include the post op checkup, some don't.

Don't pick based on price for such an important operation.

In Preston it is 32 where I go for a male neuter. I am surprised Manchester is so expensive. That included pain medication and check ups are usually free. Though it's a bit far from Manchester and would cause a lot of stress for the journey.

couldnt get through to the willows (funnily enough the best vet, which is the cheapest)

I think I was told 63 at our vets for a male, that was last year so the price may have gone up a bit now.

At one time our dentals used to be 80 for ga plus per tooth same with other ops 80 for ga plus whatever now its kinder changed to 80 for all of then dental neuter is about the same but they have now got rid of cheap long term appointments which is rubbish as we could be there everyother day some weeks as vet needs to check eye or something straight in and out and that used to be 8 for same condition now its 25 no matter what which is annoying but what else can you do but pay:?

I'm not sure on prices round here. Think they vary from 75 - 120 for a spay, then meds on top etc.

Just wanted to point out another good question to ask them when calling to enquire, is "do I need to starve my rabbit pre-op?"...this may well knock one or two vets off your possible list of where to go! ;)

Up north, I paid 69 for a spay, including pain killers, and 48 hours stay at the vets. :wave: I was pleased with it.

I paid 120 for Mrs Bun.The initial spey was just over 60 but I got in a tizz and couldnt get her to eat.She was readmitted and given more pain meds and got her going again.It wasnt stasis...just me worrying.

Smudge's was 53. Mischa's was about the same but also included a pre-op blood test which we opted to do as he'd been very ill about a month before (without that it would've been around 35 but this was 4 years ago now). Mini and Nutmeg's spays were around 60. All prices apart from Smudge's were at our old vets who were more cat and dog based, they also didn't include a post-op check, we had to pay for that, or any at home painkillers. I'd go for a rabbit savvy vet, post op check, painkillers but more pricey any day.

I contacted my local animal rescue to see what vets they used to neutering rabbits in my area, and to my surprise they said if you are on means tested benefit, you can get a voucher for free neutering. Which Im thrilled at, I didnt even think that they would have anything like that.:love:
