ouch

wonton and his bandana

the city of los angeles passed a mandatory spay/neuter law recently. we have held off getting wonton “fixed” because most everything i read seemed to suggest that it was better to wait until after six months or so, and then there was just the time crunch of the holidays. but he has his appointment for friday, and then he will no longer be firing live ammunition.

not sure if i'm happy or sad about this. my guess is that he won't be so happy to see me anymore...

looks like someone just got groomed in that picture.

This will be a tough time for all three of you. It'll be better in the long run, however, because at least one major study indicates that dogs who are spayed or neutered live up to three years longer than those not altered.

Ruby and I both will keep Wonton in our thoughts and best wishes for a successful surgery and a fast, speedy recovery! Please let me know if I can help out in any way during Wonton's surgery and recovery time.

Joe (and Ruby)

Neutered pets make better pets. The reason they want you to wait until 6 months (I worked for a vet, back when) is the anesthesia is hard on little brains and nervous systems. I've seen really young pups fixed though and as long as you have a really good vet (I'm sure you do)he will be fine and dandy. We got our Bubba neutered and he didn't even change his pace. Still as happy and active as ever. We thought maybe they forgot to do their job, so we checked and yep, he's It now.

Wonton is an adorable name for such an adorable dog. I agree with the rest. Neutered and spayed is the way to go.
