Abstract: Rabbits are popular pets and can play an important role in biological and immunological research. In female rabbits, spaying is sometimes required to control demeanor and pregnancy, particularly when reared as pets. This case study was intended to address the efficacy of surgical outcomes and anesthetic protocol in rabbitsspaying. Clinically healthy 2-month-old 2 female short-haired animals weighing 1.5 kg and 1.4 kg, respectively, were presented to a teaching veterinary hospital. Spaying was performed under aseptic conditions with xylazine and ketamine mixed in the same syringe of anesthesia at dose rates of 5 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg, respectively. The rabbit became unconscious within 5 minutes of intramuscular injection, and a 20-minute interval maintained the half doses of ketamine inserted. Animals were recovered after 60 minutes of injection. Postoperative treatment was maintained with antibiotics and painkillers for 5 days. After 15 days of operation, the wound began to heal. The case report suggests that rabbit spaying can be performed successfully with xylazine and ketamine anesthesia at recommended doses
