Highly Favored Creations, LLC, is not against spaying your dog—when the time is right, but we want to be sure every dog parent is well informed about the dangers when they spay a dog while too young. Our focus is not on the earliest age that your dog may survive surgery; instead, our focus is on ensuring your dog remains healthy afterward.
Instinctively, we dog parents know some pets are just too young to spay. Knowing when to spay a dog may make for a healthier, happier pet, and possibly add years to her life.
