Our great Dane Livy is in her second cycle she seems to be cycling every 6 months from her first cycle at just under a year old. At this rate if we wait three months after it finishes she will still be too young and neither vet will do it at her age in town. She may very well be in heat again when we go to have her fixed at 2 which means we have to wait another three months to have her fixed. What are the health dangers of getting her fixed prior to 2? do they really out weigh the health dangers of not getting her fixed, specifically mammory cancers/unwanted muttskies? Any one else have thier female fixed before 2? We live in an area though remote does have alot of mutt breed huskie sled dogs that are uncut and therefore muttskies might be our biggest issue when she has to go out to do her business. I am hoping they cant breed through the fence because of her size in comparison. and our kennel is roofed and goes to bedrock so digging under or jumping in is not an issue. This is my first female dog of any breed that didnt get fixed at 6 months so I know basically nothing about heat cycles etc....
No announcement yet.
Second cycle for a 18 month Great Dane
