  • Doggy personality changes?

    Earlier today my puppy Ali...



    ...was spayed, she's still very tired from anesthetic so I can't tell anything yet, but I've heard that sometimes dogs can have serious personality changes after the surgery. Has anyone experienced this?

    I've only had male dogs, but let me tell you, they were a little down after they got "snipped."

      My dogs personality hasn't changed since hes gotten "fixed". He is still a playful puppy and he still rides girls, if you know what I mean.

        Mine just got snipped like 3 wekks ago (male). He sleeps more but he has the same'ol hyper activity personality like before. My other 2 males are the same also.

          Adorable puppy, I was a Vet asst. for 7 years, as a rule they tend to calm down but not always.

              Err, Ali is seven months old. Which I believe is a good time to spay. But Jovi seems like he would know more than I.

                Yea, I think dogs can be spayed at about 8-9 weeks and at a certain weight.

                  "On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."

                    I thought they have to be at least six months old before you can get them spayed/neutered. I had mine spayed about a month ago. She laid around for a day or so and gradually got back to being herself. I think it took about five days for her to seem "normal" again. No problems since.
