|Is she healthy otherwise? We recently got a Sheltie fixed who is I think also 5 years old (she had already had 4 litters). The surgery went fine, and she recovered well. She had no health problems other than being slightly overweight.
If you want to be sure, talk to the vet first. I just got my male 7 year old male Sheltie neutered on December 21st, and since he is my baby I was worried about surgery at his age (I think I even made a post here somewhere asking questions, like you have!). I talked to the vet about it and asked a bunch of questions, and was reassured. I paid for the best care for him, including IV fluids and all that because I really wanted to make sure everything went very well for him. (and everything did and he hasn't even noticed anything has happened to him)
The spay surgery is of course a completely different surgery, much more complicated, but your vet should still be able to answer any questions and address and concerns you will have. Like I said though, I don't think she will have a problem at all unless she has any previous health problems.
