I did find it quite disheartening to hear how common spay incontinence is. And while I am pro spay/neuter, I am still unsure of the best age to have those procedures done. There is just so much conflicting information out there. I wonder why that is?
No, I prefer to prevent. If I had a female dog she would be kept in a crate during her heats until she was 2 years of age and then get spayed. If she accidentally got pregnant, then I would use the terminate method. I don't like using foreign things "if I don't have to" (rabies is mandatory)

To me, keeping the dog contained is prevention, not getting them spayed/neutered at a young age.
