Anyone ever had their Female Boston Terrier Spayed when she was older?


Here is a question from Lesley asking other Boston Terrier owners if they ever had an older female Boston Terrier spayed.

She says : “Hi. Anyone ever had their female spayed when she was older? My Boston terrier Dolly is 11. I have had her 3 year. The previous owners bred her a few times and the vets have advised me to have her spayed as older dogs can get Pyometra which could kill them. I am worried she is maybe too old to have an opp she is very healthy so shouldn’t be a problem. I now have a male Boston who is 4 months and he will be getting neutered at some point… I would love to have some Boston babies but Dolly is too old so wouldn’t do that to her. Any advice would be great.”

Does anyone have any experiences or recommendations?

I had a 5 yr old spayed and she did fine but unfortunately she ended up with mammary gland cancer anyways.

I can’t see that being a problem at any age, unless there are underlying health issues, that make surgery a risk.

they will run blood tests first too see if all is fine.

I had mine spayed at 10. She developed a uterus infection and the vet insisted she be spayed. She came through just fine, and I wish I had done it years earlier. She’s 14 now and going strong.

this is a post a about my dogs . Dolly is 11 and they say I should get her done and was wondering if anyone had this done at an older age ? I think I would probably have to for health reasons .
