    Default Spay and Cherry eye

    My 13 week old pup has cherry eye, the vet gave us antibiotic cream for her eye and want to fix the cherry eye and spay her in a week. 13 weeks old seems a little young to me to spay her but they say that because of her weight (15#) that it is perfectly fine to to spay her this early. Any thoughts ?? Our plan has always been to have her fixed.

    I would wait personally. I chose not to neuter him but according to my research 1-2 yrs is the best age for full development.

    It's a personal decision, but we decided to wait to have Walter neutered at 2 years of age, and Willow is 9 months and we let her have one heat cycle and we will spay her soon.

    I would wait to at least 6 months of age. Also make sure you have a good bully vet, who knows bulldogs to do the spay and fix the cherry eye.

    I would wait until she has her first heat. Cherry eye can be massaged back in when it first starts popping out. if you start in the corner of the eye and gently massage the lining will go back in. This may buy you an extra couple of months. It doesn't hurt them and will not cause any health problems waiting to have it repaired.

    I think that's way too early to spay, unless there was some type of emergency. I waited until Regina was a year, but my vet said she wouldn't do it at all before 6 months. Their little bodies need time to develop.

    Agree with others, that's way to early - wait at least until they are a min of 6 - 10 months. Is your vet bulldog experienced? This is very important.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Many Vets are rethinking the recent years of neuter/spay on puppies before 6 months old.

    Heavy boned breeds need time to develop properly & risk bone cancers & females may have
    incontinent issues later on. Studies show that male & females need those hormones for many
    reasons in overall development, why take unknown risks?

    Agree with peeps & spay later with a bully experienced Vet

    RIP beloved boy.
