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!
