So why spaying/neutering?
1. Medical reasons
- unspayed female rabbits are prone to uterus cancer as high as 80% after age 5 years. So by spaying the rabbits, they will live longer and healthier.
- both male and female rabbits will spray urine to mark their territory. They're also aggressive towards each other or to other pets when they've reached their sexual maturity. Having your rabbits alter will make cut off the aggressive behavior.
3. Litter box training
