Vaccines, spaying and neutering


Vaccinations
If you live in Australia, you will need to get your rabbit vaccinated against the Calici virus. Unfortunately there is no vaccine available for Myxi in Australia, so in summer make sure your rabbit is not exposed to mosquitoes. For rabbit owners in other countries, you will need to check with your vet to find out which vaccines your rabbit will need.

Spaying / Neutering
Female rabbits have a high chance of developing Uterine Cancer if they are not bred from or not spayed. There are enough unwanted rabbits in the world already so your best solution is to make an appointment with your vet to get your rabbit spayed. When male rabbits hit puberty, they get nasty. They mark their territory by spraying urine, and tend to be more aggressive. Male rabbits cost less to neuter than female rabbits, as the surgery is not as complicated. Please don't let your rabbits mate as there are so many unwanted rabbits waiting for adoption in shelters all over the world. After your rabbit has been spayed, you will need to look after her/him carefully for around 10 days after the surgery
