9/6/07 When a female dog is SPAYED before their first heat cycle it reduces their chances of developing mammary cancer by 99%. Since a dog's normal heat or menstruation cycle begins at about 6 months, dogs should be spayed between 4 and 6 months. George
9/12/07 There are both risks and benefits to spaying at a young age. I suggest reading the following article and then making an informed decision that works best for you and your family. An important consideration, of course, is that you are able to prevent your puppy from being bred should you choose to spay when she is older. Also, if you purchased from a responsible breeder you will probably have a contract which requires spaying by a certain age, in which case you are bound by those terms. Jennifer
