Myfanwy

We have found out the reason Myfanwy was going toilet all over the place.
She has something wrong with her so the vet says she has to be spayed.
Is it ok when she is so young?

my vet said 6 months for my dogs, thats how old they were...but my kitty got spayed at 5 weeks and her hips never spread the way an adults did (the shelter did it before I ever even seen her) so I am not sure the perfect age or any of that, but I know theres going to be others who know alot about it good luck

I got Charly Done at 5 without any problem. She had stumbled across me barely a month before and decided to keep her just 2 weeks before that... and I had Odie already signed up for an appointment and wanted to do them together, so I talked to my vet, and he gave her the first set of shots, including the rabies one... and signed her up to spay the same day as Odie.
I've heard that lately doctors are doing early spaying, and many prefer it over waiting till they are 6 months... but I have no info about it... there was a thread done here... I'll post it if I can find it... but do a search if I don't... maybe the smae person that gave the info can give it again...

Sheryl, I know this is off topic but please type phonetically HOW you say that name!! Is it how I'm reading it?? Like, MEW-fan-nee?

Just really curious because I've never heard the name used before so I don't know how to read it without going over it two or three times in my head.

I had mine neutered at 4 months (shelter had a ped-vet specialist...I guess that's what you'd call him) I believe and my Jack Russell spayed at a year. Both of them had no problems. However, my American Eskimo was spayed young and ended up with problems. She was spayed before we got her and at another vet, so that may have been the cause too.

Does the sex of the dog matter? Can males me neutered earlier?

well, I know that the sex of the dog matters in the sense that female spaying is a more invasive surgery than male neutering. To do females, vet have to open the abdominal cavity to remove the reproductive organsse, while males have the reproductive organs on the outside, so they don't have to open the abdominal cavity, just the scrotal sac. Now, I don't know about having it neutered before the testicles drop, I guess it's a bit more difficult/risky, since they have to search of them. I know that my vet told me that Odie would be ready for the surgery when his testicles dropped... so right when they started to show, I took him and the vet checked them and did the appointment.
