2 years ago, i had my boxer female spayed by the SNAP unit here at our local pet shop here in Goldsboro. Before the procedure, she never had a problem of any kind. When we brought her home, we noticed she could not control her bladder. I just passed it off that her body was shocked by the surgery and it would get better over time. Well, 2 years later it has not gotten better. she leaks all the time.We cannot take her with us anywhere that has closed quarters. What could the vet have done to have messed my Tater?

I thought this article was going to explain spay surgery. It doesn't even touch on

It's also very biased. I understand and agree that most bitches should be spayed but we shouldn't pretend it's something minor. It's a major surgery, it's painful, and there are health risks. Some cancers are prevented by it but with some others the risks increase. Such as blood cancer in breeds that are

It's also unwise to spay so early. Hormones play a huge role in the development of the puppy into adulthood. And some studies show that spayed bitches live shorter lives and don't tolerate the aging process so

People should make informed decisions when choosing to spay. It's not all roses and sunshine.

Those of you who think your dog shouldn't be spayed are ignorant. There are thousands of homeless dogs who need homes. If people didn't breed their dogs, other dogs would have a chance. So many animals are in need of homes, so why bring more puppies into this world?!

just to let you all know, all these nice effects for early spaying are true for humans too. and yet we don't do it, right? let the dog have a litter, find the pups nice homes, and don't make it into a toy, devoid of its rights.

Oh yeah, dogs can DIE when bred

I think you shouldn't spay your dog because they need to live free and give them a chance to have a litter of puppies.Thats what I think you should do but do whats best for your dog and not whats best for you.

My puppy is about five-six months old (we don't know for sure because we got her from the shelter), and we got her spayed just yesterday. She was a little lethargic and tired, but she seems absolutely fine despite the sutures on her abdoman. She's lively still, but more cautious with her movement - she loves to jump and play a lot. We were fortunate in that the vet assistant was someone we knew so she helped us out and we trusted her. Anyway, my puppy's spayed and I think, in the long run, it's a good thing and that she (and we) will be a whole lot happier. It just broke my heart to see her in pain though - her vet gave her pain meds. It helped.

i just wish i would have known to get the pre blood work done the vet didnt tell me anything about it before i brought my puppy in for her spay surgery and 3 days later we had to put her down becasue her kidneys were severly damaged by the drugs that they gave her. here i thought i did all the research i needed to make the right choice for our first family pet. but really i had no idea the pet owners deserve to know about the pre surgery blood work for their pets

I have to take my female dog in to be spayed. Is it OK to feed her in the morning before I take her in?

I recommend requesting the vet not to use stitches that need to be removed at a later time. I have heard it can be uncomfortable for dogs.

Puupy has been back to vet 4 times in a week after surgery - bleeding - having trouble with stitches - not sure whats going on - she is listless - was wondering - never heard anyone having problems.

Thanks for the information. I had my 6month old pup spayed today and forgot to ask the vet just what all they removed during the procedure. I'm glad it's over though. Thanks again.
