Cancer in rabbits is relatively rare, but it does occur. The most common forms are skin cancer and uterine cancer.
Up to 85% of female rabbits develop uterine cancer by the time they are 4 years old. The best treatment is prevention – spay your female rabbit.
Surgical removal of tumors is the usual treatment. Most types of cancer in rabbits respond well to chemotherapy and radiation.
Feeding your rabbit a high quality food along with fresh vegetables and supplements can improve the immune system and help fight disease.
If there are any changes in your rabbit’s behavior or any signs of illness, bring your pet for a checkup. Early detection and treatment of disease improves chances of success.
