      I never really thought I would need to spay her; she’s an inside rabbit and doesn’t go outside very often so there isn’t the threat of her mating and she isn’t very territorial or aggressive, so I figured it wasn’t a problem.

      Now, I’m reading some stuff online that says “75% of female rabbits who aren’t spayed develop ovarian cancer and die between the ages of 3-5”.

      Is that true?

      Has it happened to anyone?

      I also read that the older a rabbit gets there’s a higher chance of something going wrong during the surgery.

      Ivy is almost three years old (her birthday is in a few weeks) is she too old?

      Hi
      Yes sadly that is true and my house rabbit was spayed for that reason mainly.
      I would discuss it with your vet. Try to find a experienced rabbit vet, my old rabbit died shortly after having a late neuter. When I was very little my dad tells me.
      If you have a blood test done before it can usually tell you if she’s well enough.
      Apparently this can be done to cause minimal stress
      By asking your vet to do it while you are there holding bun then taking the sample from her ear. They can scrape off a little fur by using a scalpel rather than using loud and scary hair trimmers ☺

      Just found these your bun should be fine to have it done with full blood work done before hand

      Thank you so much for responding.

      I was going to take her to get a check-up fairly soon, so I’ll be sure to talk with the vet about getting her spayed as well.

      Thanks again. ^-^

      That is probably a good idea, asking the vet.
