marshalls/peters rabbits

as you guys may know i got a rabbit from petco. a peters rabbit...
i have been trying to find out how old he is. they couldnt tell me, but they told me he was nueterd on dec. 25th of last year. so i figured he was 4 months old when he was nueterd
well, i may have been extreamly wrong. i have heard they nueter them as early as 1 month old. i dont see how its possible!
id love to have more info on this if yall can help me out! please please dont link me any peta sites. i have googled it and thats all i have gotten. i refuse to look at peta sites, they are wrong in sooo many ways (just in my opinion)

I always think it's a good idea to take new pets to the vet anyway. That way the vet is familiar with you and your animal and your pet can get familiar with the vet. It's not usually very expensive for just a check up and then you could ask the vet for an age opinion.
Very cute rabbit, btw.

thanks.
oh yeah hes been to the vet.
i was just wondering if you guys heard all of that crap about rabbits being spayed/nueterd at just one month of age. i got on a mailing list and asked this question and i had TONS of repiles. everyone seems to say something diffrent.

Rabbits can't be spayed/neutered that early since they aren't mature yet.

Well, they can, I'm sure but from what I've read it isn't really recommended.

Could the vet help you at all to determine the age of your bun? Because I got my bunny at the shelter and when I took her to the vet and asked her how old she thought she could be, she answered me that it was practically impossible to know. I'd be really curious to know Thumper's age...

hes around 6-8 months old.
and yup he was deff. nuetered at one or two months.
my vet said she personally does NOT nueter that early but some do under certin cases. also many shelters nueter that early to get baby buns out of the shelter faster. however a spay is can cause many problems at that young age, but not nuetering.
