Spaying your Jack
by: Jane

As soon as she has all her vaccinations, she can have a "pediatric" spay done. Usually though it's recommended at 4-6 months, depending on the breed and size. Smaller breeds reach sexual maturity sooner than large breeds usually, but by 6 months is ideal with any breed. Before their first heat is the best- they have fewer complications in the long run.
