And is there a benefit to feeding your dog meds for the rest of her life? I would rather pay for the pill/shot that terminates the pregnancy than paying for the estrogen supplement for the rest of her life.
I'm skeptical of all the foreign things we human give to our dogs, and then we wonder why or how they developed cancer or diseases/problems.
Based on your experience, I think validates waiting until they develop the "normal" way before cutting them open.
