Hello my names Julie and my baby jessie is a jakawawa she is now 18 weeks and still quite small I've been advised by my vet to get her spayed next week my concern is her size, it's a responsible thing to do my vet said it's best to do before first heat but I read that this can also cause complications like osteo problems, any advice appreciated. Number 2 I have bought every dog food under the sun last Bering royal canine but she pick and I end up cooking her lamb or chicken with veg am I causing any harm? Last one she has very fine almost bald under her belly and these dirt looking marks have appeared but don't seem to be washing off can I use something stronger. Thank you this is my first dog who I spend all my time with she's excellent around people and dogs if they are really big she just rolls on her back as if to say take me!! She's going so well in pads but I don't think she goes when we go park. A lot of info but I'm a worrier just want to make sure. Thank you all my animal loving friends.
