Ovary Sparing Spay is also a choice where just the uterus is removed. That makes pyometra much less of an issue. I was considering it until I noticed the moodiness of my gal during her heat.
Thanks for your response Jenette. I know that on rare occasions anesthesia can cause problems. I always keep that in the back of my mind whenever my dogs have to go under. I hope to keep that down as much as possible.
