Re: Behavioral & Physical Effects of Spaying/Neutering

ive got a nearly 5month lab/GSD cross. we have never had a spayed b itch in our house before and this has made me quite concered.

we HAVE to have her spayed, as it was in our contract from the rescue. they say to do it after the first season, but i think we should wait.

any thoughts???

Re: collar is making my puppy scratch

yeah i thought about getting a nylon one,
