We have a 3 month old Dogue de Bordeaux puppy, who had her first visit to our vet today. We have no intention of breeding her, and plan to have her spayed. Our vet said he would be willing to do the surgery as soon as 4 months of age (after she's had her last puppy vaccinations), and that it would be cheapest financially to do it while she is smaller and before she's had a heat cycle.
This is the first giant breed dog I have owned, and I am unsure about how spaying at 4 months of age might affect her growth and what the long term health implications might be. Can anyone share any info or links with me? Thanks!
