Spaying or Fixing Female Dogs

Spaying a female dog is the most popular and most effective way of preventing the dog from becoming impregnated. Spaying a female dog allows the owner to rest at ease from all the dangers and discomfort that can occur while the dog is in heat. It also helps to avoid certain diseases from showing up in the dog. If you are not intending for your female dog to reproduce, or if your dog has already had puppies, spaying the dog can be a very advantageous option. The operation to spay a female dog consists of extirpating the dog's uterus as well as both ovaries and removing them by making an incision in the abdomen. The recovery time after this operation is fairly quick and most female dogs go back to their normal lives in a couple days. Extirpating the dog's ovaries not only avoids the problem of the dog becoming impregnated, but it also takes all of the inconveniences that come along with it.
