You could always do it yourself with a couple of rubber bands... Found a download of detailed instructions here (http://www.wooliecreations.net/angoras/articles/neuter-your-bunny/)

Inbreeding isn't the end of the world with rabbits, but you'd soon have far too many rabbits.

the vets are really good it you put money on your account weekly or something then they can do that, I have had all my boys done they cost from 75 to 90 dependent on the size and amount of drugs the operation is 40 then the drugs on top smaller bunny and less drugs etc

Discuss payment plans with them

That's disgraceful how could you say that. have you ever seen the effects inbreeding has on rabbits?!?! it's a disgusting thing to let happen and it causes so much UNNECESSARY suffering

Just disagree politely, avoid rhetoric and state some useful facts. If you're big on rabbits, you can probably tell us how much inbreeding they can "get off with."

I didn't say inbreeding is good. I said it's not the end of the World. Do you think it actually is the end of the World?

It is the end of their world, it can kill them. also cause so much pain, wonky joints twisted insides brain damage deformity why would you even attempt to inbreed thinking it 'could' be ok.

Neutered rabbits are far happier than un-neutered rabbits. Females over the age of 3 have an 80% higher risk of uterine cancer and will usually not survive it. Males will usually spray urine like entire male cats, which means far dirtier housing for you to clean! Females can also spray, both of my girls did before being done. It's also far easier to litter train bunnies who are done.

It's not really expensive when you consider most rabbits won't have vet bills over the years, and it will save you money in the long run, if you have to buy another hutch (around 150 for one an appropriate size) and vet bills if you do end up with cancer in either of them.

Bear in mind, both should be done, not just one. http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/resources/content/leaflet_pdfs/neutering28.8.07.pdf

I (http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/resources/content/leaflet_pdfs/neutering28.8.07.pdf)f you can travel, Tain was 69 for my females (each) and Rogart is 55 (each).

33,000 rabbits are in rescue every year. The world does not need any more, let alone unhealthy inbred ones!

I had my male rabbit "done" and yes it was almost as expensive as getting the dog done!
But he is happier living with a partner than living alone, so the expense, of getting him done was worth it.
