    Hiya, it can take between 6-8 weeks for hormones to die down after neutering. Fingers crossed he will calm down in a couple of weeks and forget what it was all about :thumbsup:

    So long as he isn't biting her or drawing blood, I would leave them to it if they're already bonded or you'll end up having to restart bonding from scratch. She will get fed up with him in the end and chase him off if he gets too annoying! :winky:

    You could try putting a soft toy in with them (make sure there are no chewable bits and no beans inside - something like a baby's first toy is perfect). He might turn his attentions to that instead x

    They sound adorable and very much in . Is your doe spayed by the way? There is a possibility she could still get preggers if they were bonded straight after his neuter as the sperm lives for a couple of weeks :erk:

    Sorry hun, I didn't mean to scare you. They are pregnant for approx 28-35 days and usually start nest building a day or so before they give birth. I'm sure its a very outside chance, so don't panic and you can probably work out from how long they've been together if its likely. I'm sure things will be fine tho :winky:

    when babies arrive, it is virtually impossible to tell with any degree of certainty if a doe is pregnant or not, if she is unspeyed and been mounted by a buck she will believe she is pregnant and most likely act that way (which means she may become extreemly agressive towards the buck)... how old is she? seperate them untill the male has been neutered at least 8 weeks... it amazes me how often vets forget to mention this, last year i helped with 4 unwanted litters from recently neutered bucks
