I don't have a female dog, but it seems that in reading on the forum here that there is not 100% agreement as to when is the best time. I have read where some think it needs to be done before their first heat, and some believe it is better to allow them to have one heat. I agree with Karen in that I don't think it was cool for your vet to scare you like that.
Finn is scheduled for his neuter next week too. He is 14 months. I knew I wanted to wait until he was at least a year, and his breeder agreed to let us wait. I know I will fall apart after I drop him off, probably go out to the parking lot and throw up. Well, not really, but I will not rest easy until I hear he is out of surgery and OK. When Augie had his neuter, I got lots of housework done, so I wouldn't have time to dwell on it. I was in tears in the parking lot after I left Augie.
