Having been told NOT to spay by my current vet Because of the supposed 50/50 death rate :shock: i have spent the morning phoning different vets for advice.

The vet about charges 77 for neutering and 86 for spaying.

I just spoke to a lovely vet twenty minutes away from me who said they do nabbit neutering every day and rarely have any problems with th GA.... They charge 32 for a neuter and 46 for a spay!

I'm quite shocked at the difference tbh!!!

What did you guys pay?!

That's fab! Where abouts are you? I think Honey's spay cost about 80!! :wave:

I think the price difference is because it's slightly more complex/ invasive for a spay, although I could be very wrong so just ignore me...


Stephen's neuter was about 55, but I couldn't be sure as it wasn't me who neutered him, his previous owner did.

My vet charges 71.48 (oddly specific!) to spay rabbits, but they also do rabbit care plans (we got one for Mylo) that is 55 per year and includes 10% off neutering. The plan also includes vaccination against myxomatosis every 6 months, annual vaccination against VHD (Vaccinations are usually 30 each), one syringe of Panacur, consultation with one of our nurses every three months for nail clipping and dietary advice and 10% off out of hours consultation fees.

Just realised I sound like I'm advertising! :lol:

Does the price for the cheaper vets include take home painkiller and a checkup?

My newer vets charges more for a neuter than my old vets did but at my old vets painkiller and checkups were added onto the price so my newer vets is actually cheaper.

I've tried four vets. The one we're using charges 90 for neuter, 120 for spay.
The others are around 60 for a neuter and 80 for spay but two of them don't include any meds, apparently they don't need them unless there is complications??? (Surely bun will be sore afterwards?)

Wow..... Sounds like i really lucked out then!!!

I will now be able to afford getting them all done at once, which will save a lot of faffing with accomodation, and i'm pressuming will mean i can bond them before the neutering?

They should really provide post spay and neuter painkiller. If bunny is sore they will likely pick at the stitches plus you don't really want a post op bunny going into stasis due to pain.

Personally I wouldn't try bonding until after a few weeks after the neuter. Hormones will still be high for a while after.

Approx 40 for a neuter and 60 for a spay. Usually varies by a few pence as they routinely give painrelief and gut stimulant so it depends on the rabbits weight and how much they need to prescribe/charge.

Have you tried contacting a local rescue and asking what vet they use as cost comes in cind to expertise and quality of care - especially for surgery of this type.

That's what I thought too, and that's why I decided I won't be using them!

I've booked my bun in to be spayed on Tuesday then thought to query the price (I had my boy done recently for 60 and booked Rosie without asking so thought to check) there was a sharp intake of breath when they told me it was 116, that seems an awful lot doesn't it? I feel like I need to phone back to check she didn't make a mistake. Is there any way to negotiate? Crazy.

My vet charges 50 to neuter and 70 to spay. And he can do dentals while he is there and other things but you don't get charged for them.

I have recently had my two does done, total cost was 140 but this included the medication\pain killer they needer post-op.
