Hello again

I have worked out a reply for you below.

1. As the spay surgery can be quite traumatic I personally would let her settle in for 10 days or so before such surgery so she will be familiar with her surroundings and have a comfortable familiar place to come home to after the surgery.

2. As long as she is not actually in season then at the moment then this should not affect your other dogs.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Ok. Thanks. But should I not do it the day of geting her?
I don't want to introduce her to our dogs and 10 days later have to seperate her and then having to reintroducing?

Hello again,

Personally I would not do it the same day, waiting a short time until she is familiar with her surroundings and her new dog companions is going to be the least stressful way for her ...
