Well, called my vet clinic this morning, and they said he doesn't and won't do a partial spay... Will make a few more calls, but it looks like I'm just going to have to endure a cycle or two...

Three clinics called including my own. Most seem absolutely clueless as to what a partial spay is and on one does them. Kinda sad that it seems that once these doctors aquire their license and businesses, that they don't keep up with latest studies and research to improve the quality of health for their clients pets.

I think that they just go by everyone else and insist that if you do not plan to breed, spay or neuter. That there is no other way and it will not effect the dog's health if you do this. They just worry about the puppies and then their pups and their pups.

Default Nevada Laws

Nevada of course recently passed a law that decided it for us when we have to do things.

They require spaying AND neutering by 16 weeks of age.

Oh WOW! And how do they reinforce that? Are you then fined if you bring your dog to be spayed at say... 2 years old??

LOL. You know I have yet to figure out that one!

I know that one problem is with licensing. No spay, no license. They also require rabies at 16 weeks though we think it should be a little later than this.

PS: Our beloved Bink passed away in Nov due to cancer and though for many weeks I thought I would never be able to add another fuzzball to our family, we have filled out our contract this last week with my GSD breeder and a new fuzzball will enter our home around September!!!!

I live in Las Vegas, my Vet told me the opposite. It's against the law to spay and neuter until the puppies are at least 16 weeks old.

My Vet wants me to do it as soon as possible, and is now 18 weeks old. I got two different opinions and both said that there is no health problems to worry about for neutering early.

If anyone has a Vet here in Vegas that can say the opposite, I'm willing to listen.

This is what I found about the spay/neuter law for Nevada that was mentioned.
