Customer Question
I have an 8...

I have an 8 year old Maltipoo has not been spayed yet can I still get her spayed or is it too late

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the Maltipoo?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with her she's in perfectly good health

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the Maltipoo seem to hurt?

She doesn't hurt at all. I was wondering if I could get her spayed she's 8 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the Maltipoo's name?

Madison Taylor

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Madison?

Not really. She hasn't had a heat cycle in a few years. We just recently got a male puppy 4 months old and it sent her into a heat cycle which lasted the normal amount of time. But I don't really want her to have to go through that again if I can help it
