1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Getting a husky spayed   Mon Jul 16, 2018 5:24 pm

I have a 5 month old (just turned it today) husky/wolf mix. I am looking to get her spayed, I already have the appointment and everything, but I just want to know if it will change her attitude or personality at all? and what I should expect with getting her spayed. Thank you

It can change a little. Stopping hormones can calm a dog down a bit but the brunt of their personality isn't ruled by hormones so it shouldn't be a drastic change. They will tell you keep them calm and basically on bed rest for 2 weeks. That will be impossible. She will be groggy for a bit but will bounce back fast and hardly know anything has happened. Main thing is don't let her jump and play rough. Keep wound clean by not letting her roll around in the grass or get wet. They only really want to slow down the first couple days and then give you hell after that. Delayed spay is becoming the norm due to studies regarding hormones and growth. Many are now choosing to delay spay until after a year. You would have to survive a heat cycle without her getting prego but it is a healthy way to insure the dog gets all the proper growth hormones while they still need them.

To the point of this being a supposed wolf mix. Does your vet know and do they have experience with wolfdogs? Is this a dna tested and proven wolf mix or a word of mouth from the breeder wolfmix? Many, if not most, wolf mixes have very little to no wolf in them but some less than knowledgeable about wolfdog vets can sometimes overdose hybrids because true upper content hybrids have a higher metabolism than normal dogs and they want to make sure that they don't wake up on the operating table. This can kill the dog. So it is important to really know what you have so that you can inform your vet properly if dealing with a higher content animal. Low content probably don't want to say anything to the vet about it and assume that it's just a dog so that they don't over compensate for something that they don't need to. Upper content they need to know what they are doing and what they are dealing with if it's a true to form upper. Many vets won't work on hybrids, but if it's an upper content you don't want just any vet working on it.
