I usually wait until they are 6 months old also.  However, I currently have
a litter of 1 female and 2 males and I was wanting to get it done before
they became sexually mature.  I have them scheduled for the middle of
January and they will be only 4 1/2 months old.  What are the future health
problems for early spays and neuters.  I haven't heard about this before.
Perhaps I need to reschedule for a later date?

I personally do NOT neuter/spay until much later and have never had a
sprayer.....my vet doesn't like doing it that early, and believes that
neutering males so early has some possible future risks that are not yet
known.

We do ours at 6 months; our vet will not do them before that, and from what
I've read about the bad possible side effects of early s/n in dogs I can't
blame him.
