    Since they won't spay now until 1 year, my girl is now in heat at 7.5 months. She and I are already over this. She's wearing dog panties, and she is not amused.

    Plus my foster boy is coming back from the surgeon today, and they told me that I will have to keep warm compresses on his surgery site for two weeks to keep the fluid from accumulating in the stretched out skin where his giant cyst was.

    Fun times.

    I think it’s ridiculous the vet won’t spay your dog.

    I’m surprised the surgeon didn’t place a drain in the surgical site to have the fluid drain out automatically?

    Apparently that's the thing these days. They don't want to spay until the dog has reached full maturity to try to avoid some bone/ligament issues that they think having the hormones during growth helps to alleviate. IDK.

    I've never dealt with a drain either, so I am not sure if that would be worse of better. He's home now, and it really doesn't look that swollen to me.

    I know why they hold off spaying/neutering, my vet started doing it too. I’m just old school I guess.

    Drains are messy, but they expel all pus/fluid from the surgical site.

    Apparently some people think you should wait until 18 months. NOPE! I will wait until 1 year, but I am making her a spay surgery on her birthday!

    The foster is doing great! He never really swelled up like they said he would. He has some loose skin, but considering how large it was that's to be expected. He has a bunch of stitches that have to stay in for another week+, but he is feeling and doing great!
