    How old was you pup or dog when you got him/her spayed or neutered? Did you see any behavior changes? My baby boy is 5 montha old. I want to get him neutered before he turns 6 months. Is that a good idea or bad or does it make that much of a difference? Any info is awesome to get.

    I ran a search and roughly 90% of the responses to "what's the best age to spy" on here are incorrect. I have gotten the same answer from 2 different Vets. They both HIGHLY advise to spay BEFORE their first heat. Both Vets stated that in doing so, it GREATLY reduces the likelihood of any female...

    I know the old rule is wait until 6 months to spay.neuter. My question is is there any benefit to waiting till a year? Is there any benefit to spaying earlier? Although I have taken care of several of my clients dogs after they have been spayed, and not noticed a difference, does it change a pit...

    I want to have my China Doll spayed, but I have read several conflicting reports on what age it should be done. :confused:She is going in on Friday for her second set of shots (she is 10 weeks old tomorrow), and the staff at the vet says they can spay her then if I want. Should I be concerned...

She feels very warm... her gums are pink but should I start syringing her with water or powerade via the parvo method? She keeps hiding in...

    Not specifically about pits but about dogs in general. They have the mandatory spay/neuter law for this area. As I do plan on getting my dogs spayed/neutered, I don`t want to do it before sexual maturation. Found an article about the positive and negative sides of spaying/neutering a dog in...
