My standard chihuahua is six monthes old and weighs around 2 pounds. I want to get her fixed, but I’m not sure how old she should be before I get the surgery done.
She is small for her age and breed, so will the surgery be more risky? My vet did a very good job when my other pets were fixed, but all of them are big dogs and she is so small.
Her name is Sacha, and I love her very much and want her to be as healthy as possible. Any information is appreciated.
She’s old enough, you definately want to get it done before her first heat cycle to minimize mammary cancer or eliminate pyometria
