So when I first joined here I really knew nothing about Labs and how spaying/neutering effected their growth plates. And after reading everyones helpful replies I decided that I would have Sawyer neutered at a year old. Well I was lucky enough to recieve enough money this christmas to put back for his surgery. He is officially 10 months old next week. So I am wondering if I call the vet and they happen to have an opening before his 1st birthday is it going to make much of a difference? I won't be able to call until monday so I have a few days to way all the pro's and cons.
