Very interesting as always. Although I don't have buns, I've learned a lot about them from Bunny Camp News.

Thanks for this, but I am going to comment on one piece of text. Page xl. Aims of neutering. "To eliminate the risk of testicular cancer". Is this a serious problem? I have had 4 bucks. None were neutered. Only 1 sprayed, we had no aggression, no cases of testicular cancer, and there has not been a need to lop bits off. If I was keeping multiple rabbits yes, but I don't. Sorry but if a pet needs having bits carved off it to modify its natural behaviour then perhaps the species should not be kept as a pet. Here endeth the rant.

Latest veterinary thinking is that it is better to neuter males. Although there are nowhere near as many cases of testicular cancer in bucks as there are uterine cancer in does it is still significant enough to warrant the advice. What you need to bear in mind 2-foot is that wild rabbits rarely survive past a couple of years so these problems are not as apparent in them, but with house rabbits (hopefully) living to a ripe old age, we get health problems that come with are associated with the aging process hence the advice of preventive medicine.

Have you ever heard of a buck with testicular cancer? Would two foots accept that treatment? Sounds like a load of balls.

There was one called Jimmy White, but he DID play with his balls a lot.

We've never had any testicular cancer in bucks here (but we know of two 2-foots who've had it). As for diagnosed uterine cancer, we've had one case in 42 years and if we average this out it equates to one in about 420.

For hopvious reasons, none of us are routinely neutered - only if there is a medical reason for it. We recommend it when our offspring are adopted though and it's a condition of adoption for boy-girl pairs.
