    DefaultBrandi will be 5 months....Time to be spayed?

    What is the best time / age to get Brandi spayed?

    Is there anything I could do to make Brandi as comfortable as possible afterwards?

    Should I see any changes in her behavior?

    Thanks

    As you see, opinions vary widely on this Talk to your vet, talk to your breeder, read what you can and make your own decision. I personally would wait a few more months.

    My vet always said after 6 months and before the first heat. I would talk to your vet.

    Yep...opinions on this subject vary greatly. Personally, my girl was spayed after her first season. Some say wait until after they have had a season, others say do it before...

    Considering you have waffled on giving her up and keeping her, get her spayed now.

    There will be no changes in her behavior.

    Get the vet to give you pain killers.

    Considering he wasn't even going to keep her just a short while ago and there isn't a "breeder" Brandi should be spayed right now.

    What does this have to do with the topic?

    If we were "giving her up", she'd be gone by now. We OBVIOUSLY got through whatever it was that was causing an issue for us.

    Maybe I'm missing something.

    What does "considering not keeping her a short while ago" have to do withthis topic?

    I'm really curious.
