We have a beautiful purbred Golden Bella. She just came into her first heat a week ago. Well yesterday she got tangled up with the neighbors dog. He's a mix. Our neutered German shephard got into a fight with the dog so I have no idea if he even *Uhhum* got the job done. We were hoping to wait until this heat to get her fixed. Money is a bit tight but when I called the vet to see if we could get her in after the tangle they said we have to wait until after she comes out of heat. Now here's my moral dilema... should I take her anyway not knowing if she's pregnant or just let her have a litter if she is... how soon before I would know. I'm probably going to have to wait about 2 weeks to take her in anyway if he won't spay her in heat considering the circumstances. Oh and we just dropped $400 on her a month ago because she tangled up with a porcupine and got 60-100 quils to show for it... so I'm not all too excited to be spending about the same to get her fixed... My Vet starts spays at $352 including everything for under 6 months of age... well she's over a year so they told me she'll be more expensive... UGH! I really should have gotten her spayed 6 months ago I know... but 6-7 months ago was Chirstmas! DH is having a fit!
