Thread: Rabbit Neuter - low cost WHERE?

  1. #1

    Rabbit Neuter - low cost WHERE?

    The rabbit is a pet for a daycare. He started to nibble on the children's legs last week, and the daycare provider was told it is likely a boy thing that can be corrected by having him neutered. They don't have the $100 they were told it would cost to neuter the rabbit, so we are trying to find a way to get the rabbit done at a lower cost somewhere so the rabbit can keep his home. Nibbling on daycare children is not an option so he stops it, or he has to go.

    it will take a knowledgeable vet to do this.... as rabbits are sensitive to anesthesia

    All Kinds will be who i would check with.
    Some people are like Slinkies.... not really good for anything,
    but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Ummm...how about not having a rabbit walking around while daycare children are present.

    Ok - guinea pigs are the same way - I had my pigs done by Dr. Gold, North of Baltimore years ago.

    Apparently the bunny plays with the children and even sleeps with them at nap time. The children have become quite attached to the bunny - if we can help the daycare get him neutered, he may not have to be placed in a different home. I'm pretty sure that he has been kept away from the children since he started nibbling last week.

    I am quite surprised that this is not against daycare regulations. I've never had a daycare provider that even had a dog or cat before.

    I know of a lady who does day care that has many cats in her home. Obviously none of her kids is allergic to cats. I guess it varies from daycare to daycare, but don't schools have pets in classrooms to teach kids about animals? Oh and I just thought of 2 other daycare providers I know personally that both have cats and dogs in their homes. Licensed providers also.

    The schools have pets in aquariums/cages, but they are not running around. I don't know. I just think of rabbits hopping around a house as nasty. Then again, it's my preference to not send my kids to daycares with shedding animals.

    That was my next question but I'm trying very hard to not spout off my opinions about this.
