When should I spay my dog?

Question: 

How long must I wait after my 1 year old dog finishes her heat cycle to be spayed?

Answer: 

Ideally, we recommend waiting a couple of weeks after a heat cycle to spay your pet to reduce the risk of surgical complications. However, most veterinarians are very comfortable spaying a dog during the heat cycle by taking additional step to minimize the risk of surgical complication.
