My Parsons Jack Russell terrier is five and as yet has not been spayed. The vets have told me that this is something I should do sooner rather than later (I've decided not to breed from her which I was originally going to do). The vet has said it leaves them open to a lot more nasty infections and diseases if she's not spay. I've also been assured it won't change her temperament or behaviour but I'm very unsure. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Spaying an older Jack Russell
by: Ellen

We spayed our "older" Jack Russell. Like you, we had been thinking about breeding but changed our minds. She was about 4 at the time. Our vet told us that spaying was preventative to pyometra (uterine infection following a heat cycle) and from the research I did online this seemed to be true.
Good luck with your decision.
