Thanks for the info. He pees anywhere in his playpen. At what age is the best to have him fix? I really think I have to get him neutered! Even if I prefered not to have him go through it. Hopefully after being fixed, I'll be able to hold him in my arms. For now he doesnt let me. Today he's been good with using the litter box.

I think I know why my bunny started "marking" his playpen area. It was just after cleaning up his playpen. I guess it confused him a bit. Now what I do to reduce his marking (and hopefully get his bed back in his playpen) is I leave a bit of dirty litter in the box and change the rest of the litter box. That might confuse less my bunny. I did that this morning and no peeing outside the litter box!

With an experienced Vet a neuter Operation should be fine. There's ALWAYS going to be a risk with any animal put under Anaesthetic, same with humans..

In my eye's the benefits of the Operation definitely out way the risks.

Neutering of Rabbit's will also calm there hormone's down and make them easier to litter train/house train.

Six months is considered a good age to neuter Rabbit's, a little older for large/giant breed's of Rabbit's.

Your vet will advise you best.
