    Whilst spaying a Doe is entirely a personal decision for the owner, it is something I would always advise. I have seen first hand the effects of Uterine Adenocarcinoma in Does and it is not a nice experience.

    The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund have a lot of good information and advice on their website, including facts about neutering and also how to know if you have a 'Rabbit Savvy' Vet. I'd take a look around the site and maybe have another think about getting your Does spayed

    Oh I'll definitely get the spayed. But with it being about £140 per bun. Ill have to do it over a couple of months. Mia does have some behavioral issues so I will definitely be getting her done first.

    That's quite expensive. You can always shop around rabbit savvy vets. I paid about £80 for my last female spay ... And that's at a top class vet
    Please vaccinate your rabbits for RHD2 as well ..

    Hmm, right OK. We are surrounded by vets where I live so maybe I'll shop around.

    That was a quote from my local vet. But they don't see many buns. So I probably wouldn't take them their anyway.

    Yes you really need a trusted vet.


    If you want to find a good vet in your area then you can start another thread in Rabbit Chat with the header:

    ...and members will help you out with their recommendations.

    It looks like you’ll have to get them both spayed, or I doubt they’ll get on well long-term as they’ve already fought. Not sure if you mean one is 5 months or 5 years, but if 5 years then you need to get it done asap.

    In the meantime, I would recommend moving the one that keeps peeing everywhere to another room, away from the other. Put the litter tray where she wees most, get a couple if need be, and wipe up any wee not in the trays with white vinegar, at least twice a day. Pick up stray poops as well. Keep hay just in the trays, and make sure trays are large enough to be comfy in (not corner trays). If she was just marking her territory, then after a couple of weeks she should start peeing in one or two main areas rather than everywhere.

    I’d still think about taking her to a vet though if you think she is actually incontinent. Could be an infection that needs treating.

    No 5 months.
    I would never leave it that long (5 yes). Only reason I'm being hesitant is because I got made redundant.
    I have moved her for now. As soon as I can spend £200 on getting them both done I will. But I feel Mia is the priority as she is the one with behavioral issues.
    She had a check up today and not incontinent. Think I was just scared she was really injured (further) after the fight.
    But otherwise she is a happy healthy bun.
    Thank you everyone for your advice.

    Glad to hear she is healthy, it must be a weight off your mind! I would guess that it is territorial marking then, so I guess you either have the option of keeping them side-by-side so they have some sort of company and putting up with the weeing everywhere, or taking one to another room to prevent them being so territorial.

    They’re both young so, whilst they can’t be together till they’re spayed, at least you have lots of time to get them done. A lot of vets prefer to neuter after 6 months anyway, and you could use the time to find a vet that is more confident doing the procedure.
