• Hello, I want to spay my dog. She is mixed Chihuahua. I’m not sure that is it safe for her to do the surgery after her second heat? She’s about to have her second heat and I called in Banfield, they told me that her appointment will be like in next few weeks. I’m just cornered about my dog since there’s an overwhelming information on the internet. Thank you

    Hi Mynhi,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about your questions. A spay can be done at any age and there are risks and benefits that will change depending on her age, breed, overall health, and if she is in heat. Your vet knows your pet and they will be your best resource for questions that are specific to her.

Need more information or advice?
