What age is too old to neuter my GR? Can't Post

Hi anyone,

My Golden Retriever female is 2 years + of age almost 3 years old. Isit still too late to neuter it? She was my first dog so i didn't had much experience beforehand. Now i have another JRT who's 7 months+ of age.

Is my GR too old for a neuter? I'm so afraid it'll be too painful an experience for her. What must i prepare for? Do i sit in during the procedure? I think i'll faint.

I intend to neuter my JRT male too when it's 8 months old. But people have been telling me i'm cruel for taking away his masculanity/'ball's! I read it's for their own health when they're older?

TQ!

Hi! It's ok to spay your GR at this age. You can visit the vet and see what they say. However, the recovery will be slightly slower than younger puppies tho. Don't worry, it will be ok. I don't think you can have the opportunity to sit in during the operation. Before the operation, you have to fast your dog, at least 12 hours before the op. Can't even drink water coz if not, she will puke a lot after the op. Can't bathe 2 weeks after the op, so it's better if you bathe her a day before the op lo.
It's good that you are considering neutering and spaying your dogs. Shows that you are a responsible owner. Frown Yeah, I have lotsa ppl commenting I m being cruel, taking the dignity away of my 6mths old Benji. Haha... but you must be firm lo. Ask why do you want to do it in the first place? We want to prevent unnecessary pregnancies, reduce spraying and humping problems, reduce the risk of cancer and improving the health of our pets. Also, ppl will stop pestering you to "lend" your JRT to them to make purebred puppies. Hehe.

hi cindy_pebbles,

Thank you for that sound advice there. Will try set an appointment to spay her when she goes for her heartworm injection. Will ask the vet when to spay my JRT too! Nah...i won't want to see any humping problems or risk of cancer to my darling pets. I read that it's for their good health too.

Thank you!

You're serious ppl got the blardy cheek to ask someone to borrow them their pedigree so that they can breed and make some money out of it? Aiya........like that also can ah? Pirate

I mean how do one open their mouth to ask another person "Eh, can I borrow ur dog for a few days ah?" Or "Eh can borrow me ur dog to mate with my dog and when got puppies, i'll give ya X% commission" I mean that just sounds sooo SICK....unless you have the intention of getting $$$ and don bother about the poor fella lah. I'll slap the living day light out of those who dare to ask me to borrow my dog mannnn.....i look for you to pet-sit for me is one thing but you come looking for me wanting to borrow my dog???? WTH, think my dog is like a Gucci bag ah, can go on loan here and there.

Urgh...some ppl are just soo darn coockoo..... See the "S" with the double middle stroke, what is right and what is wrong also all blur blur already; air muka got value or not also doesnt matter liao.

Aiyerr....i'll so give them a ' Are you in the head look?" if they were to ever ask me.

I just met one yesterday!! She was actually a backyard breeder and I got my Benji from her (didn't know she was a backyard breeder back then...kinda ignorant then) and I went back to collect his MKA cert. She has another MS 4mths female whom she EXCHANGED with her boxer with the purpose to breed more MS however, i think the colour of the MS is not so nice or maybe she has TOO many dogs to handle that she decided to sell her 4mth MS to me at RM950. That poor thing was soooo fat and was locked up in the cage 24 hours a day and was sooooo timid that when she tried to take the MS out from the cage, the MS was holding on to the cage, didnt want to come out at all! Gosh! Then, suddenly i think she remembered I had a male MS who is already 6mths and then, kept asking me if my MS is good-looking and if he is big enuf and if his coat is nice and ask about the colour etc. I think maybe she thinks she could mate Benji with that poor thing MS pup but I just told her that my Benji was neutered 1 week ago and so, no way is he gonna be "on loan" or do any "donation". Sheez...
I knew someone who also want my Benji to be her MS's bf. When I told her that I m neutering him at early age, she tried to dissuade me from doing this and said that he should have a litter first. Unsure
Lotsa ppl like that out there. They just wanna get back their INVESTMENT, you see... really pity that 4mths MS...sigh...
