Age to Spay?

I've been advised that 6 months is about the right age to spay? Any thoughts?

You should check with your breeder. My breeder and vet recommended 7 to 8 months.

Best, Poornima

Calling the breeder was great advice...

Good advice to call the breeder before you spay...she said since Beanie is only 6.5 lbs...and all of her other small Havis came into season at about 9-10 months, (Beanie's mom came into season at one year), to definitely wait until Beanie is bigger. I am good with that since I don't want to take a chance on such a small dog..so Beanie was happy that I cancelled her appointment this morning!

Pixie is under 6 lbs at 18 months and was much smaller at 6 months when she was spayed. Everything went smoothly. Beanie is adorable and I love her ears!

Chloe was about 5.5 lbs at 6 month when we got her spayed. Within 24 hours I could not tell she had the operation. Puppies heal fast!
