|Missy, vets don't recommend spaying at 8 weeks, for pets that have good homes, but for about ten years now it's been routine for shelter animals, so that they're spayed/neutered before they go to their new homes and can't contribute to the population of unwanted pets, or pets who wind up in bad homes because the human parents of the accidental litter didn't know enough about screening potential adopters.
As for Madie being spayed at 4.5 months--I'd rather do it a little later, but Madie's vet has actually examined her and says she's ready, and Madie's pawrent is able to be home for her.
Madie, you do want to ask about the pre-anesthesia bloodwork. If there are any problems that might make the anesthesia or the surgery more risky, having the bloodwork will enable the vet to be prepared and make Madie safer. My vet never does surgery without pre-anesthesia bloodwork. A little more expensive, but soooo much safer!
