Mia has just had her first season at 15 months old and I have been considering having her spayed. Having done a bit of research into it and finding so much conflicting evidence for and against, I have found myself still sitting on the fence about the procedure and also at what age will be best. I am considering having her spayed because one of our previous labs had pyometra and it was terrifying. I didn't have my lab spayed but she was uncomplicated about everything, she literally never gave me any reason to be concerned about her health and the only time she visited the vets in all her 12 years was for her annual health check but with Mia she's a constant worry, if she was a human people wold probably be calling her a hypochondriac! Mia also hated not getting out when she was in season, I limited walks and what walks we did venture on were strictly on lead around the part of the village where I know there are no loose dogs so I don't want her to have to go through that again if possible. If anybody can offer any advice or information from their own experiences I would be grateful. Ultimately all I want is for Mia to be as comfortable as she can and I don't want to make a decision that may negatively impact her in years to come. Thanks in advance!
