My adopted pittie pup was spayed at 8 weeks- concerned about future health issues

Hello! Our family recently adopted a 9.5 week old pittie pup from the local animal shelter. I was shocked to learn she was already spayed at 8 weeks. When I adopted her, I had no idea the health concerns that come along with early spay. But the over-researcher I am, I have learned that the loss of the hormone producing organs before the growth plates close can cause bone loss, ligament issues, weight gain, irregular bone growth, urine incontinence, etc. Obviously I am very concerned for her future health. She's on the small size, might have been the runt. He mom was smaller too (I would guess less than 45 lbs). Are there some sort of artificial hormone supplements I can give her? Would you have adopted her knowing she was spayed at 8 weeks? Any other advice? I just want what's best for her. Thanks!

Hello Dani and welcome to the forum. The research is correct and neutering at that young of age could cause various problems. Knowing that ahead of the adoption I would look for a different puppy. If you are intending to keep the puppy I would suggest not giving any hormone supplements that wasn't recommended by your vet. Your vet should be made aware of your concerns and offer their advise. Best of luck. Please let us know how things work out.

You could get her health/genetic checked to see some of what she might be inheriting.
