Spay/Neuter For Happiness

Part four of a series on the benefits of spay/neuter.

Spay/neuter is one of the best things you can do to create mutual happiness with your bunny.

Twenty-five years ago, it was standard practice to confine pet rabbits to an outdoor hutch, lonely and isolated in the backyard. With the advent of safe spay/neuter surgery and a much better understanding of rabbit needs, it is now considered best practice for rabbits to live indoors as welcome and active participants in the family.

A spayed/neutered rabbit is a well-behaved, social, and litter box-trained companion animal. A well-behaved bunny is likewise rewarded with greater freedoms and is more fully incorporated into family life, which as a social creature makes him very, very happy. What does life with a happy rabbit look like? It can be watching movies together while snuggling in bed. Itʼs keeping you company as you scroll Instagram or work at your desk. Youʼll also enjoy watching adorable cuddle sessions with his bonded companion and his big leaps of joy when the mood strikes. Rabbit happiness is running as fast as she can on the living room carpet. You get the idea! Spay/neuter leads to happy bunnies and happy families.

Spay/neuter for mutual happiness. See if your area offers low-cost spay/ neuter services and if you qualify. Your local rabbit rescue or animal shelter will also have a list of qualified veterinarians they recommend for your bunny.

    Since 2001 my life has been filled with my own beloved, free-roaming house rabbits. They fueled my desire to help other people and their rabbits live happily and healthfully together. I began as a local educator for the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (2008 — 2015). I then became a licensed educator for the national House Rabbit Society (2016 — 2023). I have expanded my own rabbit knowledge through many conferences and seminars on rabbit care, behavior, and health. As a rabbit advocate I’ve organized transports, campaigned, fostered, and provided hospice care. As an educator I’ve done my best to create easily accessible information to improve the lives of rabbits and the humans who care for them. My beloved bunnies were: Mouse & Duchess, Captain BlackOak & Pixel, Fluffston, Guinevere, Joy & Magnus.
