    I would just bring hay and pellets. 

    Do not fast the rabbit for 12 hours. The reason people and some animals fast before surgery is so they don't throw up. Rabbits cannot throw up and fasting them can lead to other problems. Rabbits need food constantly moving through their system.

    If she is having the operation, she should not eat before, otherwise she may be sick, i had rabbits spayed and the vet told me no food for 12 hours! check again with the vet.

      A rabbit should never fast before surgery. They cannot vomit (which is the risk for other animals under anesthetic). Rabbits are not supposed to go without food. You are lucky you're vet didn't accidentally kill your rabbit with his inexperience.
