Another disadvantage is that you may not be able to show your neutered chihuahua at events.
For any Kennel Club licensed events, you can show a spayed bitch, providing you have informed the Kennel Club in advance with all of their required information. I hope she feels better soon, when she is up to it send us a photo for the blog.
However, their heat cycle gets eliminated after this procedure.
I have had Chihuahuas for many many years and I have never had any of them spayed .yes I have bred some of them but I have never had any of the problems that the vets go on about. Most UK vets are fully behind the procedure.
Every female dog my mother ever had was spayed at that time and each one got fat. Your dog will need at least 24 hours to recover from this surgery. There is more to read about spaying and neutering your chihuahua in. Making an informed decision. I have read and read and feel that to not spay is the right thing on such small dogs.
And yes I have looked into the benefits of spaying. Nothing causes opinions to flow like the subject of spaying your chihuahua.
For some people getting your chihuahua spayed is a straight forward decision. Therefore, owners must not expect an aggressive dog to become docile. I can handle her heat cycle as we do not let her out unattended & our male is neutered. If not neutered, unwanted pregnancies can lead to an increase in the population of dogs. Advised they don’t like spaying unnecessarily anyway. Most UK vets are fully behind the procedure. Your email address will not be published. I feel my dogs are sentient beings that have a right to live their life as naturally as possible. Very hormonal I have Chis and when I first saw the article title, I thought “Oh, Lord, here it comes…” But just like the care I take in each decision I make concerning to spay or not to spay, to neuter the male or not to – it has always been taken on a case by case basis with each dog and each dog owner I deal with. Although it has occurred in younger dogs.
The new vet was actually in agreement with me. But I’ve found that just like us, each dog is different.
The female will no longer have the urge to wander in search of a mate. But I had all the answers, as Id researched it. The pros and cons of breeding my Chi (probably just the once like her own fur mummy). Males never miss the hormones that made them feel frustrated and constantly steered them toward trouble, and females don’t feel unfulfilled because they didn’t have litters. Spaying your chihuahua bitch is never an easy decision and the fact that research leads us one way and then the next makes the decision to neuter extremely confusing. Spaying will prevent unwanted pregnancies as well as eliminate heat cycles. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent. These cookies do not store any personal information. I am so distraught and having a bad case of nerves. I have had several chats with different vets and asked one why they didn’t just sterilise (vasectomy in dogs and tubes tied in bitches) rather than totally de-sex them. It is important that you wait for your chi to be a healthy weight, if your pup is undersized, your chi may not be able to cope with the anaesthesia or operation, but your vet will advise you on this. I, on the other hand, had always waited until after first heat and never had a fat dog. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent.
It is a fairly short operation, and she can usually leave the clinic on the same day or the day after. Its hard to go wrong by keeping all that in mind. Dogs do not need to wait until they are between six months and a year old for spaying or neutering.
One thing my vet did say that seemed to makes some sense was ‘Your chihuahua does not have the emotional tie to her ovaries as women do.’ So there is a possibility that I am projecting what could be my own angst onto Minnie. The truth is, altered pets are often the top performers in competitive events. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer, and it depends on you and your dog’s needs. Toilet training can go out the window during a season. The behavior that your dog displays is largely dependent on her personality. Your spayed pet may have learned while she was intact that humping feels good, and does so as a masturbatory behavior.
Now she won't sit or lay down. “Its best for her and you” Now, my chi is fat and we’ve never been able to get the weight off of her. She is doing very well and almost back to her normal self.

It’s everyone’s personal choice whether to spay or not but with research and good advice i felt my decision was made clearly and easier to make, I just had my daisy spayed yesterday she is 9 months old and weights 2kg at 6 months she had her first season and never came out of it she had a bleed for 4 weeks and a high progesterone level for the rest of the time I thank my vets who have been so good and the advice was spot on I feel so sad seeing her with the after affects of the op but I know the pŕoblems she would of had in later years puts my mind at rest that it’s the right thing to do we all love our baby’s and what ever path we chose is our decisions.
She’s under the vet at the moment for a possible allergy and it’s great not to be lectured every time I visit on this subject. But, the link between mammary tumours and spaying has been largely dismissed by some. Spaying can cause weight gain in dogs, which could lead to health implications, although a reduced diet and more frequent exercise should be able to combat this issue. However, don’t consider this procedure as a quick fix for behavior problems. To which the answer was “no and probably won’t be”.
I think Norway has the right Idea not to allow this procedure unless it is for a strong medical reason! In unfortunate circumstances, dogs can have a very adverse reaction to anaesthesia. This category only includes cookies that ensures basic functionalities and security features of the website. My vets are fantastic and took great care of her and myself since she’s my first chi and needed lots of advice about the breed. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. I have had 3 chi’s and my little Mia is tiny enough that the vet was concerned at a year old about anesthesia. The removal of the uterus and the ovaries certainly reduces the chances of several illnesses and curbs the problem of aggression in dogs to some extent.
This eliminates the chances of unwanted pregnancies.
Most dog owners believe that the hormone-related mood swings and aggressive sexual behavior disappears after the removal of the reproductive organs. She came in season a month later and went from loving to down right evil as well as keep biting at her rest end and paws while crying out. The reason they can preform a total spay or neuter is because of the considered ‘health benefits’ of the procedure. It feels good to know there are other chi mamas out there like me. At 3 lbs.. she’s very petite. Because it is less intrusive and has three small incisions rather than a long scar it can be less traumatic and can heal with less risk meaning your chi can return to normal activities quickly. However, owners must not expect that dog will never display aggressive behavior after this procedure. We also use third-party cookies that help us analyze and understand how you use this website. My thought process was, our male dog has been neutered before we got him, so why put her through such an ordeal.
Soon after that I changed vets and was asked was she spayed. A female dog does not need to go through her first heat or have a litter of puppies before she is spayed.
That was 8 weeks ago and she’s back to sweet ,loving and playful Any cookies that may not be particularly necessary for the website to function and is used specifically to collect user personal data via analytics, ads, other embedded contents are termed as non-necessary cookies. This is considered unethical. Neutered males can keep their minds on their work, and spayed females can compete throughout the year without losing several weeks because of being in season. As for us, ATOW Minnie is two and has now had her third season. Definitely the right decision for her.
Intact female dogs may hump other dogs or whatever else is available when they're in heat, but it is not unheard of for spayed dogs to engage in the activity. She is 3 now and has not gotten any bigger. If nothing works have the vet check the thyroid I had a chihuahua that had thyroid problems and was put on medication for it and lost weight . Most veterinarians recommend having your dog sterilized shortly after the completion of his or her puppy vaccines, around the age of five months. I’d say the large cancer threat far outweighs any advantages of not spaying a dog you don’t intend to breed. We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish. In general, it is believed that the removal of the reproductive organs can reduce the hormone-driven behavior that dogs display when in heat. I have been told she is too small and would have to have a section. Dogs who have never experienced a heat cycle or had a litter prior to surgery actually have a decreased risk of developing malignant breast cancer later in life. She will be somewhat disoriented due to the influence of anesthesia, which is why, you must keep her isolated from other pets.
She had to go to the vet for pain relief and I booked her in for 3 months after her season finished The link was only ever theoretical and no meaningful study has been done. In general this does not become a big risk until your chihuahua is around 6. Spaying your bitch too early can also result in hormone incontinence, and your bitch will be on hormone replacement for the rest of her life. Monitor the incisions and follow the aftercare instructions given by the veterinarian. She was fine with my other female dog til she went in heat. We hope you are enjoying PetPonder!
(2.5-3 years). Put your dog in a warm, quiet area when you bring her home after the spay surgery. But, for me it’s down to ethics. Make sure to take plenty of advice before making a decision and consult your chihuahua community so that you can make the right decision for you.
