Accident

My two female rabbits were running about the garden and my stupid sister thought it would be funny to release my male, I'm not sure how long he was out for but I spotted him mating with one of them, I pulled him off as quick as I could but my rabbit had a lot of spearm around her privates. She is 6 years old and too old to have babies anymore, I am so worried that if she is pregnant then she will not be able to give birth naturally and die. What should I do?

Did you check the other female too? It's highly possable that he could have mated with both females before you got there. There's not a whole lot you can do, I think some vets will do an emergency spay if you take her in and tell them what happened and they think it's dangerous for her to have babies. Or you could just let nature take it's course and wait awhile to see if she is pregnant. If she turns out to be, I would take her to the vet and talk to them about your worries, and see if maybe if she starts to give birth and has trouble if you can rush her in and maybe there is something they could do to help her out. I don't really know if there is anything else you can do, I've never been in this type of situation.

Good luck!

Do you think that she would concieve (if it came to it) with my help?

How old is your sister? If possible, I think you should have both females looked at by the vet and your sister should pay for the vet.

I'm confused

Do you mean could she deliver the babies with your help? I really don't know if there would be much that you would be able to help with if something happened. She could have the babies with no complications at all - but if a baby gets stuck and she can't deliver it or something I don't think you'd be able to do much for her other then take her in to a vet to see what they can do for her. You wouldn't want to try to help so much in a situation like that because there is a high possibility that you would just make things worse unless you really really know what you're doing.

^^^well said. You can also look at various web pages on breeding rabbits to kinda get an idea of what to expect and how to feed them properly. I wish you the verry best of luck. I do know that if it is hot outside the chances of rabbits actually haveing babies are slimmer.

Isnt that what your worried about in the first place...that she will conceive?

I hope the vet can offer advice on the best thing to do.
Wishing for the best.

perhaps there is confusion w/the words 'conceive' and 'deliver' ??

Conceive=become preg.
Deliver=you have the babies...
i think she meant that she wanted advice on if the rabbit could have the babies on her own...as we are already assuming she conceived and the deliver question, as stated above is truely a question for a vet looking at the rabbit

I would recommend having her spayed, personally. The delivery and pregnancy will be rough on her, and if she survives, she's still intact and at a huge risk of ovarian cancer, which will require spaying to solve anyway.

Sorry I do mean give birth, not become pregnant, lol.
I just worry about getting her spayed because she is old.
My sister is only six but she did it out of spite anyway.
I am just praying that she isn't pregnant, but I am just wondering what to do if she is. Thanks for the advise I will take her in a few weeks to see if she is pregnant.

I can understand your worry about spaying her due to her age, but pregnancy can be just as dangerous, and if she survives this pregnancy and then has ovarian cysts, she'll have to risk both.

Aww what a horrible situation to be in. I am not quite sure what i would do if it was me. I think your best bet is to sit it out and see if she is pregnant and hope she is ok with it and if not call a vet or just take her to vets get them to check her over and ask about spaying her?
Good Luck hun! xx
