Always knew the 'dangers' and always tried to be careful - folding wire ends once cut, bagging the wire & safety disposing. Yesterday, as usual went...

    I am curious at why age you prefer to spay your female puppies? Spencer is a miniature dachshund, born 12/23/11. I have done spaying and neutering before but at 5 to 6 months. Also, laser or traditional? Is laser worth the additional charge? Thanks!
