My friend has a 10 year old chihuahua (Its the friend who owns Teddy) She adopted her from a Puppymill place and she is 10 years old and has been pushin out puppies for along time. She wants to be reensured that everything will go ok with the surgery cause she is affraid of losing her on the table because she is older and not that good of health. So anyone got any good stories of older dogs being spayed or bad stories of dogs being spayed??? So I can reensure her everything will be ok?

Depends on the vet and her health. I know the vet I worked for would not do a spay that old because of possible complications with anesthesia :?

I have no answer but God bless your friend for adopting an older chi with health problems. I could just cry thinking about that poor little girl who has spent a decade pushing out litter after litter. It's about time she got the love and care she deserves. Your friend is my new hero.

You guys remember the thread about what your one wish would be? I want to change mine. My one wish would be that all puppy mills be eliminated from the face of the earth. I hate those places more than words can express. :twisted:
