Is it too late to neuter a rabbit?
When male rabbits are between 3 and 5 months old, they are old enough to be neutered. Female rabbits are generally old enough to be spayed between 4 and 6 months; this is when they first reach sexual maturity. When rabbits have reached middle age (5-6 years old ) they can be considered too old to be altered.
What happens if you don’t neuter your male rabbit?
