Whats the right time to get a dog fixed?
We were told by our vet we should wait till the girls went into heat at least once. We waited that long with Lady as well, Puppers got fixed at 6 months...I was wondering what others views were.
We got Penny fixed when she was 9 weeks, the vet we had then said it was a good time and safe, she had all kinds of problems from it thats why we waited with Lady...I just wanted to know when others did it and if their were any side effects.
The girls are 10 months old now and Libby is in heat (messy girl lol) and leia already was so we are setting up their appointment for 2 weeks away. Since they are never out of our eye sight when outdoors we knew it would be ok for them to go through their first cycle, but I wonder why the vet tells people to wait, what are the benifits for the dog, does it make them healthier, or make the procedure safer?
I know I am rambling, I just have so many questions, its been a very very very long time since we have gone through this...
Oh and one more thing, do dogs get cramps like humans? I ask cause Libby lays against my lap with her belly facing the space heater outside, she never did that before lol so I was just wondering.
Thank you in advance...
