Spaying My Female Aussie
Hey there! I'm getting a red tri female Aussie who is currently five weeks old. I'm getting her when she is 9-10 weeks. In my state (Nevada), there is a law in which you have to have multiple permits if you do not spay or neuter your dogs before 6 months. I was fine with that, until I researched and found multiple things saying that it is bad for the dog's health if you spay them before at least one year old because the sex hormones finish off some of the bone growth. I don't want to harm my new puppy any way, so I was hoping there would be some advice about when to spay her. I think it's terrible that the law says they must be spayed/neutered before six months because it could be harmful to their health.
Thanks for any help!
