    DefaultFor those waiting to spay until after 1st heat ...

    how long after the heat cycle did your vet tell you to wait until you spay? (Just wanting to compare what my vet said to others ...) TIA

    Either one month or three months, but not two... sometimes false pregnancy (which is normal) will bring on strange symptoms if they're spayed around the time their "fake" litter would be delivered.

    Would spaying earlier (1 month) vs. later (3 months) prevent a false pregnancy? Obviously I'm confused ;D
