My vet does not push spay/ neuter.
I think he has brought it up once.
The dog (not puppy) was being sedated for something else. He said " If I planned on spaying, he could do both at that time."
He might tell you his professional opinion on something. But doesn't try to push you to do something, you don't want done to your dog.
I was at the vet last week with Shine. I asked him a question on something, that was a little different than his normal treatment. I chatted with his vet tech for a little while, before Shine's paperwork was ready. The reason for the hold up. He was doing research on new studies to my question.
Then came back up to the front office, to go over it with me. Doc has to be in his 70s, but is open to new, and improved Veterinary Care.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
