Bitch Spey

Speying, or neutering, involves the removal of both of the ovaries (ovariectomy). Surgery can be performed from 5 to 6 months provided the bitch is not in season. However, if surgery has been delayed to after the first season, then the optimum time to spey is 3 months after the finish of the season.
