Im going to have her spayed the week after the dove opener, she will be 1y9m old. The question is will she get fat, or lose her drive right now she has alot of drive and I dont want her to lose it. Thanks for the info.
I have always spayed my shorthairs. They have remained fit & trim, but I do exercise them. I would recommend this also for you. If your pup starts putting on weight, either reduce her food intake or increase her exercise. Don't worry about her losing her drive. She's a birddog, she lives to hunt! Good luck. If you not planning on having puppies, this is the best thing for her and you! lol
