Spaying a Lactating Dog

My Pit Bull had a litter of 7. They are about 7 weeks now. She only feeds them about an hour a day now. Can I take her to get spayed now?

She is still nursing her puppies and they need every drop of her immune system, etc., they can get, even a bit a day. The snuggling is very important too.

Also, she is still in recovery from birth (7!!!)! Give her a break for awhile before you put her under for the cut!

A spay is a complete hysterectomy. That means all internal reproductive organs are removed.

Your dog will require anaesthesia and pain medication which will affect the puppies through the mother's milk. Wait until the puppies are completely weaned.

I think you should wait till the puppies are completely weaned. Also, you should certainly discuss this with your vet.

This is major surgery and you should not put such a strain on your mother dog when she has her puppies to care for.
