    Default Spay question?

    I'm still new to all this bullie health risk stuff and I haven't found any posts regarding my question.

    Ella is 2.5 years old. I don't know her history regarding medical care as she's a puppy mill rescue and they weren't very forth coming with info to begin with. She isn't fixed, but at this age what are the pros and cons with getting her spayed? I just got her, I don't want to lose her. When we take her out she is strictly on a leash and supervised at all times and we have no intact males in my household. I'm just not sure, all I've read are how eb go into surgery and don't come out

    to EBN!!!

    I would say the first thing you need to do is find a GOOD bully vet. I will post a link of recommendations on here…
    It's not so much the surgery that causes issues, but since EBD's have compromise breathing and that makes anesthesia very tricky for this breed. I will tag some members who have dealt w/spaying their females so that you can get their opinions… I know that spaying decreases the risks of cancer and tumors.

    Also reduce the risk of pyometria, which is basicly an infection of the uterus and can be fatal

    I have had dogs spayed all my life-never had any problems. I have had four EBD's spayed-but my vet is very experienced with Bulldogs-so he understands their needs when it comes to anaesthesia Find a veterinarian who is experienced with English bullies. Life is much easier when you don't have to deal with their heat cycles,and healthier for them, also-but wait until you find a GOOD vet. She is still plenty young enough.

    As others have said, find a good bully vet and have her spayed, to prevent the chance of her getting Pyometria.
