Spaying an Older Dog

Postby Dakotazeb » Wed May 03, 2017 4:19 pm

I have an opportunity to purchase a 4 year old female that recently had her second litter. I have no desire to breed the dog. It would be purchased strictly as a hunting companion. So what's the opinion on spaying a female like I've described?

What are your reasons for wanting to spay ?

Go for it...

I bred my first DD at 4yo after her VGP.

I bred her again at 7yo.

We spayed her afterwards and as my wife pulled her uterus out it disintegrated in her hands.

We lost nothing by spaying... we gained an extra 8 years for her life.

You aren't going to breed, so why NOT spay?

Good luck,

I don't want to breed nor deal with heat cycles.
