She is going to be grumpy /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif tonight with no food or snacks...
I'm just glad it's tomorrow, I've been so nervous-since she's a rescue we don't know her age, and I did not want her to go into heat with that nice black lab next door! He might be neutered, though.
poor baby, I know it's for the best. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif

well in the UK, even though vets will spay at 6 months the general belief is that it is best to let a bitch have her first season that spay in between the 1st and before the 2nd one. The though is that in allowing the first season it gives the hormones a chance to kick in and give the bitch some maturity.

I had Foxy spayed after her 1st heat no chance before!!

I am a dog walker by trade and I have dogs and bitches that I walk every day that were spayed or neutured very early on and they are very immature and can seem to be in a state of suspended puppyhood.

There are pros and cons to spaying I guess. I had Foxy spayed because she was very unhappy and sad through the first season and we never intended to breed from her, whereas Gwenni will stay entire as will Caleb.

Each to their own I guess
