my female Milky is (I think) around 5 years old. We got her as an adult, and when we got her the breeder said she was 1.. She never gave us any papers so we dont really know for sure. Anyway, after reading some of the threads, i was wondering if i should get her spayed? i dont want to put her under stress and any unnecessary surgury. i also am weary about her catching something at the vet's office. When she goes into heat, her and River, my male, do it.....but she does not get pregnant as he is fixed.
