Dr. Sue’s Vlog – Episode 62: When is the best time to spay or neuter your dog?
This is what you need to know about the pros and cons of early spay and neuter. Should your dog be spayed or neutered early? Should you wait? What if your dog had an early spay or neuter?

I explain why I waited, and what you need to know for your dog.
