neutering a pup
i have a 6 month old rottie and was wondering if i should let her go through one cycle before we neuter her?
Actually there are no proven benefits from allowing a female dog to experience a heat cycle prior to being spayed.
In fact, research has shown just the opposite to be true. Spaying a pup before her first season, ideally by 6 months of age, provides maximum protection from reproductive organ cancers and more.
You may want to read my page on Spaying Your Dog for more information.
Best of luck with your pup.
