Our expert says:
Early sterilisation of a bitch has been proven to decrease her risk of developing mammary cancer. A normal healthy bitch cycles twice a year. Early sterilisation (3 months) has long been practiced in animal shelters and thus far no long-term detrimental effects have been noted. Most vets would prefer not to sterilise a bitch whilst she is on heat. We suggest that you ask your vet’s advice on this as well.
