At what age is best for my chi to be spayed? She is currently 3.5 months. Also... the breeder said her 3rd set of shots is optional. Some vets prefer to do them and some do not. What is your opinion?

We only have 2 vaccinations in the uk at 8 weeks and 10 weeks.

Now they say it's best to have them
Spayed before their first heat as totally removes the risks of certain cancers so 6 months is the age I had mine done at 6 months old

It's refreshing to see such a responsible person

I have my girls spayed at 5.5 months.

Puppy shots are typically done at 8, 12, and 16 weeks. At least one set needs to be done at or after 16 weeks as this is when the mother's immunity has mostly totally worn off for all dogs.
