    They are doing pretty good! Still giving em meds but our next vet appt is soon. I think this Friday? I will keep u guys updated. What I do know is Rosie doesn't need to be spayed but the vet is really recommends that they do both get spayed. Not sure if I should or not they have already been through a lot. Can u guys give me ur opinions on this? I will keep u guys updated!

    Glad to hear you were able to see a vet and your girls are doing well. You mentioned meds, did they have a respiratory infection after all?

    And is there a reason that the vet recommends spaying? I don’t think too many owners spay unless there is a medical condition that requires it.

    Yes they did end up having a URI. The vet recommends spaying because they are at risk for ovarian cysts. Anyone have suggestions on whether I should do it or not? We though that Rosie might have had one since the vet told us but it doesn't look like it anymore

    The advice I was given is wait to see the symptoms. My girl has 1 very small on each. But no symptoms. Gps don't do as well with anesthesia as dogs and cats do. Lots of risks. So why risk. They may or may not cause issues. So I'll make the call if I see symptoms. Also her vet has only done 2. It's a difficult surgery so you want a vet that's done many on gps successfully. So there's another vet here that has. So it would be him to spay her.

    I have a thread here on bella ovarian cysts if you want to check it out.
