  1. when to spay a large breed dog

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi all Our bernedoodle is now 8 months and we are considering the right time to spay her. We definitely want to do this - no desire for puppies in the family (one - her - is enough). She is already pretty big - about 65 pounds or so, and is in the process of filling out, so still growing but...

    My 16 wk old female purebred German Shephard has been having diarrhea on and off for 3-4 weeks, but in the last 10 days stools are totally normal. Then she started having a milky odorous discharge about 7 days ago, so I took her to the vet. They diagnosed it as a uterine infection (pyometra)...
  6. Spaying a Large to X Large dog?

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi, I'm pretty confused as to when I should spay our Nala. She's a GSD X Mastiff mix so she's going to be pretty big. I've heard some contradictory things about it.. I've heard there are a lot of negative things in the long term with spaying, but does that out weigh the benefits? Also if it's...

  10. Health Issues from Neutering Early

    Dog Health Questions
    This question is mainly for those who have very active dogs (esp dogs that do agility). My breeder gave me this link once I told her we wanted to do some agility with Porkchop. From this link it points out that there could be a relation to neutering early and dogs having CCL ruptures...
