Does my Male Rabbit or Guinea Pig Need to be Neutered??
By Christopher Stancel, DVM
- Reproductive disorders are not as common in male guinea pigs or rabbits as seen in females.
- Neutering can help to alleviate some behavioral/ aggression issues amongst cage mates but not typically helpful if aggression develops towards humans.
- Overall, it is more important to spay a female rabbit or guinea pig when compared to neutering a male.
