Question Neutering my bun?

Right now I have scheduled to neutered my bun at the end this month, but I wonder if his behavior will change after that? Now he is very cute and active, I hope he will stay this way after the surgery. I'm worry, the surgery part is making worry . Have anyone of you notice any big changes of your bunnies' behavior or any problem after the surgery? Thanks!

my little guy didn't have any problems, and he was just as cute after as he was before. And a lot less messy too. i.e. no "point and shoot"

I thought all my buns were calmer after being done - in a good way. Teddy was full grown and was only thinking of one thing. It was so bad it made me want to cry. It was like he couldn't do anything else without that urge interupting. It had to be awful for him. Now he can play, eat and have fun without having to do that. He is much happier now.
Penelope was also full grown when she was done. She does not seem as moody as before.

There are also health reasons to have it done -such as significant decrease in cancer levels.
Just make sure you have a good bunny vet. Ask how many buns they have spayed and neutered successfully. There is also a blood test that can be done so the vet can use the best anesthesia for that bun.

definetly a good idea! also its not as scary as having a spay done which requires full surgery and a longer recuperation.i was awake for days worried over Acacia when she was spayed but certainly well worth it in the end since you end up with a better pet,less "urges" and more maintainable.. he'll be fine!!

I took Snoopy to neutered today, I'm worry, hopefully everything will be fine and any advice what should I do with my bunny for the upcoming few days? I know he will be in pain, should I still let him have his play time like always or should I wait for a day or two to let him rest? How to care him? Advise please!! Thanks!

Go to the HRS webpage... They give great advise!
Im planning on getting my bunny boy fixed too, so Ive practically memorized the page, LOL!
You pretty much just want to discourage too much movement, and make sure he eats something after the surgery. He will know what hurts and what doesnt, so let him recover and move around at his own pace. ^^

Getting boy bunny done did not change his personality. Lucky did not have those urges yet when we had him fixed. He was only lazy for the first day. We did have to keep him locked up though because he would binky and jump on the couch if we didn' obviously it did not bother him too much. My little girlie still gets those urges every now and then even though she has been spayed....will that ever stop? It sure annoys Lucky. Best wishes...I'm sure he will come out just fine and be as lovable as ever.

So far, Snoopy looks just like before, but I decided to lock him up for few more days. I did let him has his time over the weekend, but then I'm still afraid his wound won't heal as good, if I let him running around since he doesn't stop himself from not running unless he is really tired. He did look like he is in pain the first night after the surgery, but the next day, he is so normal, no pain or anything. I'm happy
