Our 9 month old came into heat several weeks ago. I THINK she's done. Today I was sitting on the couch and smelled something awful and she leaked out a small amount of watery blood that smelled to high heaven!!! I'm hoping it was the last of the "clean out." I don't know. She's eating really well, high energy etc... I talked with the breeder and she said I need to wait til she's at least 2 years old before I spay her or I will destroy her. ALL the females we have had we spayed after first heat. So around a year old. We've only had one female that had incontinence out of all the dogs we've had. She says I will have a dog that will be incontinent and on medication her whole life. Not to mention her growth will be diminished. Is this all a line of bull? I talked with my vet and she suggested getting her spayed before her next heat.
