Talking about Early Spaying/Neutering:
The Surprising III Effects of Spaying & Neutering
Age To Spay / Neuter
Ovary Sparing Spay is great but they don't offer it here & they still do come into heat.
I myself prefer to wait till 4-6 yrs. old before spaying as I do Not want to chance Pyometra. Yes Pyometra can happen at any age, but chances of getting it does increase as they get older.
Dr. Karen Becker Discusses Pyometra in dogs.
Males I prefer to leave intact unless for health issues.
If one can get a vasectomy done that is also a Great choice too, again Not sure if vet clinics offer that here.
If one must spay earlier best to wait till full maturity to allow growth plates to fuse & pup to benefit from the hormones. Maturity depends on breed but always best to wait till after 3rd heat to allow bits to grow then Spay 2-3 months after heat cycle - Heat Cycle lasts about 21 days. Of course if one cannot guarantee they won't reproduce then def have your pup spayed/neutered.
