Default Spaying?

Lola is now just over 5 months old an I'm wondering when is the best time to have her spayed as I've heard lots of different stories.

How old was your beagle when she was spayed??

Thanks guys

I can't help you with puppy age, my dogs are rescues and were spayed at 2 years old. I am sure some others here can chime in with info. So glad to hear you are having her spayed

That's great to hear you have two rescue dogs. I love it when I hear of people rescuing dogs, good on you. I searched everywhere however couldn't find a rescue that suited my family.

Rascal is 4 years old. We had her spayed when we adopted her.

Lola was microchipped when she had her needles so that's covered just the spaying that needs to be done, she isn't very big tho so I dnt know if she may have an early 1st season.

My vet won't spay before six months old.

The last female puppy I had was a Samoyed. I had her spayed at 5 months. I wanted to do it, before she went into heat. My current puppy is a male. He was neutered at the shelter when he was about 8 weeks old. I know some people are opposed to spay/neuter or think you should wait until the dog it an adult. I disagree. I think there is just too much risk of an oops litter. There are already too many dogs and puppies in shelters. The early neuter does not seem to have had any impact on my puppy

5 months is absolutely acceptable. Some vets won't do it until 6 months, but call yours and ask and if he will, then I'd say you're fine.

Cassie's recovery was uneventful and her old self within a couple of days. In fact she went to obedience class 6 days post op (the trainer was informed).
