Omg Mei! Iím so sorry for not getting back to you. I havenít been on the computer for a while.
Iím sure that you already spayed you pup, but in case you havenít yet...
I did do the ovary sparing. I liked the fact that she will keep her hormones and eliminate, or reduce the certain cancers and joint problems that may have occurred. She did well. A quick recovery, and discomfort for one night.
My other girl had the conventional spay and did very well also. She lived till 13 years with no major problems.
Who knows...either way I think it comes down to a personal decision. 😁

I was planning on maybe a partial spay but her last heat was weird: undefined start and bleeding for more than three weeks. Her moods were over the top as well, compared to previous heats. She is 5 years old and will be fully spayed in a few months. I also don't want to worry about pyo anymore.

I got my female Indian Pariah undergo a uterus removal (hystrectomy?) 4 years ago or so when she was about 1 year old and my male GSD was 6 months
The recovery took a week and a half - I would gladly recommend a procedure that keeps the hormones intact
The only downside is that the household gets somewhat unmanageable for brief period when she comes in heat but I can live with that

Hey, thanks! No, she's just about to hit a year old in a couple weeks, so she's still intact. I'm not planning on doing any procedure until shes at least two years. Her first heat came at like 6 or 7 months and wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!

So you did ovarian spare? You, and the girl of course, like the results? Does she still go into heat with this procedure? I still got a lot of research to do!

Since they retain their hormones they will go into heat and are attractive to males.The only benefit is that she won't bleed. My vet said that the left "uterus stump" can stil get infected and if she were to mate, it can cause vaginal injury due to the altered tissue. These considerations made me decide for a full spay but it is a personal decision of course.
My earlier fear of urinary incontinence due to a full spay was eased by a retired vet whose experience in this regard was more an issue with Rottweilers and Dobermanns and not so much with our beauties.

My vet doesnít do them. How do you find one that does? Not that I need it any time soon. My male is intact and they donít do vasectomies in male dogs either.

I know there is a Facebook page on ovariectomy that can direct you to a vet often it entails traveling. You do want to go to a vet you trust and highly recommended. People may have some recommendations you can look into and research.
