Generally, rabbits have rather large testicles in comparison with their overall body size. However, if the testicles seem unusually large, then this could be a problem as rabbits do experience high rates of testicular cancer.

Also, the rupturing of a rabbit's testicle can cause serious medical problems for your pet.

The best course of action would be to take your rabbit to the local vet, who can give your animal a thorough and detailed examination to establish what is wrong and what can be done to help.

My rabbit's testicles seem rather big?
  • If the testicles are swollen for one reason or another, usually a vet can give your rabbit the necessary injections or medications to solve the problem pretty swiftly.
  • If not, the vet may have to perform emergency surgery to remove what is causing the swelling, or to remove your rabbit's testicles altogether.
  • The testicles are a very sensitive part of a male rabbit's body - so any swelling would cause your pet a great deal of discomfort.

Rabbits normally have large testicles relative to their body size.

If your rabbit's testicles are asymmetrical or have both grown rapidly very suddenly (not during normal development) I would have this rabbit examined by a veterinarian.

It is normal for the testicles to be big in a adult male.
