my mum and dad have had a chat with the vet about me being spayed.

They are apprehensive because my big sister went in to be spayed and went to rainbow bridge shortly after.

My mum has decided to go ahead and have me spayed, she would like to do it next month however i wont have had my first season by then

are there many other friends who have been spayed before their first season

I think that most pups are spayed before their first season - that is the idea. Spay around 6 months old.

Hi Willow,
I'm going to be spayed May 15th. I will only be 8 weeks old!!! frown My breeder insists before I get her. They have been doing this for many years as I've been told by my breeder.
I have researched it also and it has been done for over 10 years now. I'm praying everything goes ok with my pup as well!
Good luck to you and take care...hug


Where's my- Tiara?

Hi Sweetie! I was spayed before my first season too, at 5 months old. A lot of the health benefits to spaying are tied into undergoing the procedure before your initial heat!

Good luck, cutie! We'll keep our paws crossed for you!

Raw-fed and- loving it!

I would be a little worried too about the spaying but it is perfectly normal, beneficial, and healthy to spay before the first heat. Do you know if there was any connection between the spaying and your other dog passing away, or was it just a coincidence? Without knowing all of the circumstances it's hard to tell whether the spaying really did cause the unfortunate loss of your dog. If the same vet is doing this spay and you're not 100 percent comfortable with that, then you might want to look into getting another vet to perform the procedure. Kudos to you for spaying... it's a VERY responsible thing to do! Best of luck and sending you wishes for a speedy and successful recovery! smile

I needed you as- much as you- needed me

I am getting spayed on May 14th and I will 5 months old, the vet said it is better before I go into heat and it cost less. My mommy is worried to but she knows its for the best, there is enough unwanted pups around.
I hope it goes well for you and all the best, Love Abbie.

My Sunshine!

It is actually very beneficial to be spayed before your first heat as it greatly reduces the chance of getting mammary cancer.
Here is some great info

Oh, I was spayed before my first heat.
