My inherited rabbit, Basil, is over 8 years old. I recently noticed he had an enlarged testicle and the vet reckons it could well be cancer but she is not sure.
The vet says it is essential as a first step that Basil is castrated. I have booked him in for Wednesday but wonder if, as he has already gone well past his expected life span, I should just let nature take it's course for a bit and then get him euthanased.
Vets are inclined to drag things out a bit sometimes.
I wonder if any Gnetters are vets or rabbit experts.
I know this is a relatively trivial matter but I have to make a decision soon whether to put Basil through a castration op or not.
Any views much appreciated.
