So is this basically saying it's good to spay females early, but to wait on males? The risk of pyometra and mammary cancer is too great and life-threatening for me to ever wait too long on spaying a female, but I would probably wait until at least two years old to neuter a male.

I am glad i waited until Vic was a little over one, i would have liked to wait a little longer then thatm 2 would have been just fine but i had signed a contract with his rescuer agreeing and felt i had put it off longer then they would have liked. Mary got pg at not quite 6 months. I had always had the girls done at the half way to a year mark. It was an oops litter and i had her fixed immediantly afterwards. I was horrified. We didn't even know she had come in season, it was a silent heat, they are real and do happen i can swear to it. I slept with her, she was a housedog and i never saw a spot of blood. I think they neutered Mr. Shaffer when he was a baby. I think he is going to have some bone problems because of it, he has lots of signs of a too early neuter. I can understand the shelters wanting it done before the dog leaves, but in his case i think it was WAY toooooo soon.

Safest age is still and always will be between 4 and 6 months of age. Most breeders like myself would wait til 6 months.

We got Cheza done at nearly 11 months, and will do the same for Lyra. Cheza never had her first heat.

Reason being we had a pexy done at the same time, and were advised to wait til they dog has gone through most of its growth before pexy, and didn't want to put her under twice when both lapro spay & pexy could be done at the same time.

I had read that & couple of others on the subject & decided to wait until Tilba had her 1st heat even b4 I got her. Which I've done. She started her 1st heat 4 weeks ago. I'll have her spayed about Feb.
