Yes we had our wee jack spayed a couple years down the track when we realsied we did not wish to breed her. Also it was recommended by our vet because he beleives that females can get a infections in their uterus if they do not have pups. (?)
Not sure how often that happens, but we didnt want to risk it, but second opinions would be a
good idea.
I think the healing might have taken a little longer than it usually would, because their being so much larger and generally more active. So we had to stop her from jumpnig on furniture etc so as not to rupture the stitches.

Otherwise all went well.

I would really talk with your Vet that would be the right person to ask that question.I do not know if your Jack is too old to be spayed or not I do know that you should wait when you have a Puppy till there at least 6 months or older.Please let me know?Here is my email address debwhite4@verizon.net

Good Luck
Debbie
