I was given a male holland lop bunny. He's 6 months old and weighs 3 pounds and 10 oz. I wanted to know if he will keep growing. Also, I have an appointment to get him neutered in a few days and wanted to know if his small will decrease. Also, what kind of litter is best. Thanks

Hello There.
If he is over 6 mo. old  he is about  done growing.
He may get to 4 lbs after he is neutered.
By litter you ask , you mean like in the litter box?
I would use any type of cat litter you like.
if you have him in a cage use cedar or pine shavings some people use wood stove pellets.
good luck
