spaying

Postby brn2tch45 » Mon Apr 18, 2016 11:56 am

Hello, my name is Beth and I had a maltese named Toby for 11 years. He was an amazing dog and we lost him this last March. I am getting a little girl on july 26th of this year, she will be five months when I get her. I have NEVER had a girl dog and I need some advice on some issues that I have never dealt with. Is it healthiest for a maltese to get spayed early? If so, what age? How will I know it's time and what's the specifics for making sure I am caring for her with this situation the best I can. Also, when does a maltese usually have her first cycle/heat? How or what do I get to make sure I take care of her during that time as well. I live in Saudi Arabia and so I usually bring my supplies from the states when I come in the summer so this summer I will want to come back prepared but having never had a little girl dog before, not sure what I need to bring. It has been 11 years since I had a baby maltese so any help, any advice, any thoughts are so greatly appreciated.
