Great Dane > When to spay?

Hi all,

I have a 5 month old Great Dane female. I've been getting a lot of different advice about spaying (we are having the stomach tacking done at the same time). The vet is telling me to spay her at 7 months. The breeder is telling me to wait until after a year do to the fast growth of the breed and the tendency to tear the sutures. I trust the breeder because not only has she been successfully breeding Danes for decades, but she is also a nurse.

But what has everyone else done/plan on doing for spaying your female Danes? I know with males it's a good idea to wait at least 18 months to let them grow the way that they need to grow.

Thanks for the advice in advance!

I get hiccups 1-2 times every single day. My breeder says that it's because of the deep-chest growth, and not to worry about it. My mom was scared of bloat too...but no worries!

I'm 16 weeks old and I weigh 51 lbs.

Any other Dane pups around that I can compare my weight with?

Great Dane > How much does your Dane eat? How much does it cost to feed? Just curious!

My 4 month old GD is on the raw diet - she eats roughly 3 chicken backs per day/40 lbs every two weeks. We spend about 44 dollars a month on food for her.
