In my experience...both rabbits did NOT want to play at all the day they were neutered...but by day two, they were hopping all over the place including on top of their houses and shelves. I would separate him for the first night, but after that depending on how active he is, you could probably put him back in with the girls (especially if he's already in with them) However, if he's not in with the girls now, I would keep him separated for a couple of weeks before introducing them.
Also, you do not need to take away food and water the night before surgery like you have to do with cats and dogs. Bring his water bottle/bowl and his normal food to the vet's with you when you drop him off. Many times they won't release rabbits until they are eating, so he'll need it. If they do send him home and he doesn't feel like eating, you can squeeze from FRESH pineapple juice onto his hay to encourage him to eat. I didn't have that problem with Dutchie (he's a pig) but for Lucky we had to buy a fresh pineapple. Granted we only used it for the juice but the kids ended up eating the rest of it.
Anyway, he should do fine. Let us know how it goes (and Dutchie says NOT to give him a pink blanket or towel...it makes them feel like sissys)
