Default Sterilitation

If you purchased a purebred dog from a reputable breeder, they can
(and should) serve as an invauable resource for you in this decision
and if you signed a contract the spay might be a contractual
obligation of purchasing this pet, it might also be forbidden,
depending on the breeder and the dog. If she didnt come from a breeder
with a contract, perhaps you adopted her as a stray? What ever the
circumstances, this is a personal decision. I recommend it, however,
as the bitches heat is a nasty time consuming month long bloody ordeal
which will attract every male dog from miles and MILES away. This will
result in at best, your frustration at keeping her clean, your house
clean , keeping her away from any other dogs you may have and keeping
unwanted stray males and local loose running dogs away from your bitch
during potty times, or keeping unwanted males out of your fenced yard,
they will be fighting in your yard over everywhere she has urinated,
if you have a fence she will be literally flagging and throwing
herself at all of them (they really are not picky) thru the fence. All
this chaos might result in an unwanted breeding of mixed heritage,
which possible will result in the $100's of dollars extra to properly
care for and vet the litter (pups need to have nails clipped weekly,
be dewormed every 2 weeks and begin shots by 5 or 6 wks and must
recieve the full series of puppy shots, NOT just the first one to be
fully protected) , or worst, could result in a potential c-
section(could run from a $200 all the way up to $2000, depending on
your vet) and possible loss of your family pet, with you still left
holding the bill for it all. All of this is avoided by a simple spay
procedure done by your vet between the ages of 4 to 6 months. One
night in the vet clinic and all the above mentioned horror is avoided.
You dont mention what breed she is, if she is purebred, if she is AKC
registered, or a mixed breed or any details. If she were an AKC
registered Ch bitch which had undergone all neccessary health tests
and temperment tests pertainent to her breed, then breeding MIGHT be
an option..and still, even then, its a big MIGHT. Feel free to contact
me privately if you need more information.
Hope this helps,
