Caring for your rabbit before and after surgery

Many rabbits will have an operation at some stage in their life, eg for neutering (spaying or castration) or to treat a disease. Nowadays most operations in rabbits are fairly safe but the success of treatment and recovery depends to some extent on the quality of care that the owner gives before and after the operation.
