Should I Spay My Dog?
i am 100% on spaying and neutering dogs.i have the money to spay her but i wanted to see what you guys estimate (what i choose to do will not be based on your opinions) i WILL be spaying her this week maybe or next.im going to see when they furnish me the appointment.but i was curious to know if it was compulsory.i have 2 dogs.a manchester mix and a rotty mix.the male(manchester) is neutered my female(rotty) not spayed.those are the only dogs i own and they are always in my fenced back courtyard they have alot of space to roam around free but no one can get surrounded by my yard as i have a wooden fence 6ft towering.i mean she cant get prego by him.and when i walk her she is ALWAYS surrounded by a leash so no dog can really mate her on my watch.but then theres what is one day she escapes which is unlikely of her she listen to me.but you never know.ever had a situation like this?
AND any tips after she is spayed?
will she feel misery? what can i do to help her
No there is no chance of her gettin preggo on your keep under surveillance, but you would be surprised how high a very desperate dog can jump, or what a dog will climb on to achieve to her, so you are absolutely doing the right thing.
No she shouldn't be in any niggle afterward, since they are removing something. Her ovaries won't hurt cuz they will be gone! There will be minor soreness around the incision, so don't grab her by the belly (that WILL hurt). They vet may or may not prescribe you pain meds, generally they do not.
Don't worry about your girl, just bestow her lots of TLC, love, and cuddles.
** Spaying her also decreases her chances of cancer :) **
Non-spayed females can end up beside uterine infections (meaning they'll need spayed anyway in that case) or mammary tumors (breast cancer for dogs) that can turn invasive.
Get her spayed for peace of intellect.
She will feel pain. Sometimes vets administer pain meds. You basically want her to have minimal pursuit for a few days after her spay since it IS invasive surgery.
BTW It would be easier for us to read your question whether you used a few capital letters at the beginning of sentences.
Yes, you should spay her. Yes, after through surgery she will be having pain. Talk to your vet about it and see what s/he suggests.
YES, Spay her, asap.
Even though the manly is neutered, you should get her spayed as well. It will benefit her vigour wise in the long run. Here are some great reasons.
Eliminates "heat" cycles and and so eliminates the bloody discharge and odor associated with being "within heat."
Stops neighborhood male dogs from being attracted to your dog because of her "warmness."
When performed PRIOR to the first or second heat, spaying greatly reduce the risk of future mammary cancer, one of the most common cancers of womanly dogs.
Eliminates the risk of future ovarian and uterine cancer.
Eliminates the risk of pyometra (pus-filled uterus), a serious uterine infection which usually requires emergency surgery. This is a common problem surrounded by older, un-spayed, female dogs.
Eliminates the problem of "false" pregnancy experienced by many dogs. This is a regular occurence in female dogs following a heat cycle. this condition mimics pregnancy, total with mammary development and milk production.
Helps control the pet population crisis by avoiding unwanted pregnancies. Millions of unwanted pets are destroyed in animal shelters every year across the country.
No plea to keep her intact unless she's a show dog.
Well, you already know this, but yes, you need to spay her. Even if SHE listens to you, you can't sketch for the other male dogs in your neighborhood. They can dig underneath the fence, jump over it...horny male dogs other find a way, sounds a bit like male humans doesn't it? I own never had a situation like that because we neuter and spay adjectives our dogs, but I'm sure millions of people have: look at adjectives the dogs that end up in shelters and are euthanized every year because of people who didn't spay/neuter their dogs. Also, even lacking the risk of pregnancy, spaying reduces the risk of all kinds of cancer and diseases that happen with the reproduction system, which is another reason everyone should spay their dogs. Not to mention that it stops the fry cycles which is many owners worst nightmare! Just picture yourself on your period for 3-5 weeks not wearing any pants/underwear and the mess you would have!
As for after she is spayed, the discomfort she feels will be minimal. Dogs have much higher backache thresh-holds than humans. After spaying you might notice that she is much more obedient; praise this alot! And basically give her lots of love and affection, and be sure she doesn't get too much rough play for just about 3 weeks after, because it could rip out the stitches or hurt her a little bit. If she wants to be alone after, let her hold some time to herself, and in no time she will be back to her normal self! Thanks for making such a honourable choice in spaying her! :)
intact females are prone to DEADLY uterine infections.. the with the sole purpose treatment is to spay and put on antibiotics.. really its best to spay her now while she is healthy, rather than put her thru the risks of "needing" it done when shes deathly poorly.
Spaying stops heat cycles, which are messy and can cause your dog to be moody and irritable.. dont think a manly dog cant get into your fence.. or that she cant get out. When it comes to a feminine in heat, dogs are quite crafty at getting to respectively other! There is no 100% guarantee that she wont get loose either.. she may normally listen to you, but whether she's in heat and wanting a mate, she may NOT listen to you!
Spaying reduces the risk of mammary, ovarian, and uterine cancer.
Just for the health reason alone the answer is yes. Just a tip, you should have this done where your local animal shelter takes their dogs. They hold the most experience and in the medical profession, experience means nothing surprises them, they hold seen it all, and they have smaller number problems.
I think it is better to be nontoxic than sorry. You never know what can come into your fence even if you think adjectives is safe. I would really suggest going through with it. She might be a bit sore afterward but make sure she doesn't jump and rip her stitches out. Be painstaking with her and steps too. Good luck!
She will be happier and healthier if you spay her. Unless she is cut of a planned breeding program, there is no good reason not to spay her.
After she is spayed, plan to hold on to her inside and quiet for a week or so. The Vet should give you some pain meds. She will not want food for awhile after she comes domestic and then something like boiled chicken & rice for the first few meals.
