    Default How Do I Tell if My Female Dog is Desexed or Not? Do I Have to Go to a Vet?

    Hi, we have had our approx. 2 yrd old bitch now for approx 6 mths and we were told she was not desexed. So therefore we will be eventually getting it done, but time has gone so fast and to date she has not come on heat so we were wondering if maybe she was desexed and they did not tell us or did not know themselves (unsure if they did really have her since she was a pup).

    So is there any way of telling if she is desexed or not? I can't see any type of scar but on our other desexed bitch who we had done, I can't see a scar either, nor can I see her ear tattoo anymore either.

    Thanks

    6 months between seasons is not uncommon so she may well not have been desexed.
    I would book an appointment at your vets to have her spayed and jut let them know she hasn't come into season yet as they may want to do an xray before the operation.

    Who did you get the dog off?
    Did they have the dog since it was a puppy?

    Thanks for that, yes well we were going to book her in but seeing she hasn't come into season yet were thinking that maybe she'd already been done.

    We just bought her off a dogs for sale website and the previous owners said she wasn't desexed, we are unsure if they had her since she was a pup.

    Can I assume you have no vaccination certificate for her? If this be the case, no matter what you have been told, get her to the vet for her vaccinations!!! Never believe anything that you are told by prople trying to discard their pet!

    You can then ask the vet if she is desexed or not, however without a tatoo, it seems unlikely to me, sorry!
