Frontline

"That's what worries me too.   For our next puppy we are likely getting another female dog and this seems to be the primary concern with spaying after first heat."

"Thank you so much for the reply.  Had she already been through a heat cycle at 10 mos?  I just worry about increasing the risk of mammary cancer by waiting."

When to spay

I have been reading through all of the past posts, but I am still struggling.  Our Australian labradoodle will end up being around 30 lbs when she is full grown.Our vet says we should wait until at least 9 mos. to spay her.  They told me it is unusual for a female to go into heat before a year old.  That just doesn't seem right to me.  Our breeder told us that 6 mos. is a good time to get her spayed if we want to avoid the first heat.I want to do what is bets for her overall health, but I…See More
