Hi everyone, I have a 2yo large breed mongrel girl who I know I really need to spay. I have no intention of letting her have pups but wanted to wait until she was fully developed before getting it done. So, now is the time, as she is between seasons. The thing is that she is in that phase that happens about three months after each season where she is a bit broody and anxious. So I'm worried that it could be a bad time to spay her. She is not eating her breakfast (but eats it later in the day) and is showing a bit of separation anxiety if I go out (there are another 4 dogs in the house plus other people, so she is never really alone). The thing is, me and her will be moving into a flat soon, so I am going to have to gradually get her used to spending a bit of time alone. We lived in a flat before and she coped ok, but has always been a fairly anxious dog (at one point she started obsessively chewing her foot). Do you think that the spaying is likely to help the anxiety? Or is it more likely that the trauma of being left at the vets and the operation will make it worse? Plus is this a bad time to be doing it? I just want to do the best thing for her. Any advice would be appreciated!
