It isn't bad at all. Your vet may want you to bring in some poos in a baggie so she can look for bacteria. The buns will be weighed. The vet will also feel on them for anything out of the norm. She will use a thing to look at their teeth (looks like the thing doctors use to check ears). She will also look into the ears. My vet also put a colored eye drop in my rabbits eye to see it leak out the nose (my bun didn't mind at all).

A check-up is not painful at all. She will also flip them over, holding them like a baby, and check her parts and scent glands. That was the only part my bun didn't like

I think a check-up is awesome. It gives you time to get to know your vet and your buns an opportunity to know him/her too, without feeling ill. Bring all your questions about rabbits with you. This is the perfect time to ask about diet and any other concerns you may have.

Elizabeth Paige, a really good pen is a Large to Extra Large Dog Exercise pen that you can attach to your bun's cage. You can find them at your local pet stores.

BTW, welcome to BB fellow Washington resident

I use my x-pen as a way to keep bunny out of places she shouldn't be, but I use carabiners to attach to NIC grids.

Here is a list of vets in WA state that are recommended by HRS. I go to one of them
