I have two chihuahuas...a sister and brother from the same

Customer Question

hi i have two chihuahuas...a sister and brother from the same litter. they're both about 5-6 months old. if left alone during the work days of monday through friday, will the brother pup make the sister pup pregnant soon?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: i made an appointment for a spay and neuter this saturday, in one week...am i too late already?
