Has your GSD had a partial spay or neuter performed?

While I'm trying to find a veterinarian in my area who performs a partial spay or neuter procedure, I'm wondering if anyone has had either procedure performed on their dog, and your thoughts, comments, etc.?

Thank you,

I haven't personally, but there's a great FB group on the subject with lots of people that had it done on their dogs. Lots of great knowledge and informative links.

I had considered it but after watching my two dogs deal with a couple of heats, I chose a full spay. I agree, check with the Facebook group for more info.

Thank you both. I've joined the Facebook group so I'll be interested to interact with some people who know this topic very well!

There is a veterinarian in my immediate area who does the "O.S.S." (Ovarian Sparing Spay) procedure. The cost is basically the same as a traditional spay from what their office staff tells me; it's just a different option. The receptionist told me she's worked at this clinic for the lat 8 months and she's scheduled hundreds of traditional spays since she;s been employed there yet had, she estimates, a handful of the OSS procedures scheduled. She thinks people simply aren't aware of this procedural option.

I have a lead on another DVM who may perform the vasectomy on Males, so I'll be interested to find out more details on that as well.
