Spaying After Puppies

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My bully had puppies about 5 weeks ago. I was wondering when it's okay to get her spayed, and when she should come in heat again. I don't want to do it too soon, but definitely don't want to wait until after another heat cycle. I looked it up but got conflicting answers ranging from 4 weeks to 12 weeks. Any help is appreciated.

Call you Vet to ask, Vet's tend to differ with their preference.  I would get your female spayed as soon as she's done weaning, unsure when her next heat cycle would come around.

I would consult your vet.  They'll be able to provide you with the info you need as well as make the appointment at the same time.

Some vets have different comfort levels of when they want to spay after a litter. For the most part, they can be spayed at any time after giving birth, but the mammary glands can be tricky to avoid during surgery. I agree that calling your vet (or wherever you plan to have her spayed) is the best idea!

many vets will do at once her milk is completely dried up.    It can be done earlier, of course, but since she isn't in heat it would wait
