    DefaultVet says we will wait 4-6 weeks for spaying.

    I called the vet today to cancel Abby's spaying & right away they said "The doctor would not do her now so don't worry." I will call them 4 weeks after her heat cycle is over & she will be done then. So Abby will wear her panties for another week & then we will watch her for another week & then just wait.
    The vet said it is too risky & there is no medical reason to spay her tomorrow anyway.
    This is all new to us since our girls are usually spayed at 6 months.

    No Nance. Abby was to be spayed tomorrow but we noticed some blood on the bathroom floor Sat. afternoon. Our girls are usually spayed at 6 months but our breeder said since Abby is a smaller lab & her girls mature later she thought we should wait till she was a year old. None of her girls went into heat before 15-16 months. Well Miss Abby decided to be different. It is riskier to spay when a dog is in heat unless there is a medical reason to do it.
    Abby is healthy....we will just wait for awhile after her heat to have her spayed.
    We went out & got her panties & pads so there wouldn't be spots around.

    You might get a better responce from some other's but i was told that even 4 wk's was a little to soon. Takes quiet awhile for them to get "back to normal" after finishing there heat cycle- my vet wanted to wait at least 8 wk.s and preferred 12. or mid cycle- that is if they are on 6 month cycle - So Sammi was done at 12 wk's out and this work well. Good luck with the diaper's and all- my Sammi seemed very depressed with it all- here is a pic. she was mortified!

    dipete - The vet said 4-6 or later. I probably will wait a couple months too. Sammi looks like Abby. Abby has left her pants on but she is mortified also. This is Abby's first heat & she was just a year this past Jan. 15th.
    Did you count from the end of the heat cycle? I was counting from two more weeks & then start to count. I think that is sright.
    Somebody please correct me. This is my first time with this. :
