I agree you do what is best for your dog. I have one that is spayed and one that is not she turns a year she has a heart issue so it's not advised I have her spayed but after her last heat I really want her spayed she bleed alot for such a tiny thing. If it was not very noticeable I would not have her done.

My male is fixed, and my female is not spayed. Before I bought my girl I was set on rescuing. I fostered dogs for three years. Then one of the last dogs I fostered was a dog named Ruby Tuesday for half a year and decided to officially adopt her. It was mandatory that she was to be spayed by a certain vet. I still support spaying, but sadly Ruby never woke up. Since then I've been nervous about spaying my girl. So I haven't had it done, she's 3lbs though and I just don't feel comfortable.

I'm spaying princess in the 25th this month and the previous reply of ruby just made me nervous :/ but I hope it all goes well ,I decided to spay because I don't want heat cycles specially because I live an apt and not being able to take her out due to her period is driving me and her crazy she loves outdoors.But most importantly I want her healthy as she gets older.

Thank you veryyy much for sharing your experiences,
My chi is under 2.5 lbs and she needs to remove some milky teeth, the vet advise me to wait, becouse of her size the risk of operation go wrong is high, but then pressures me to get her spayed, (??) i changed vet, but every vet i go insists into spaying , one vet even told me if I refuse I no longer can use their services ( I do NOT qualify for free services, )
I just want the best for my dog, but just feel like I am under pressure to do it. In other hand I am really scared about mammary tumour etc,
I am not very happy at the moment!

I don't understand why some vets say certain chis are too small as they spay and neuter smaller animals, I recently had one of my bitches spayed and she is 2lbs 9oz she was fine and my vet had no hesitations about doing the op - myself I would always spay bitches that im not showing for the risks of Cancer and Pyometra it is a personal choice though
