    Just phoned to make a vets appointment to get maya spayed but my vet's not in (not trusting of other vets) so I said i'd call back tomorrow and make an apointment.

    I was wondering how long do you usually wait after a season? I know the vets said 4 months after maya had stopped feeding her pups but pups are all grown, she snuck in another season and finished it a few weeks back but I was wondering when is the best time to get her booked to be spayed?

    Yeah, so about 3 months then? that's pretty much midway between the two, shame it's not sooner really.

    ideal time is 2-3 months after the last season finished.
    Reason.. this is the period where the womb/ovaries are at the least active period. the blood supply is less and their is usually no phantom pregnancies going on either.
