My friend from out of state called me crying because her puppy died. She said it was only 4 weeks old :blink:. She told me she took it to the vet for its shots and the vet said they could spay her that day. The puppy died during the spay. The puppy was WAY too young to be away from its mom and WAY to young to get fixed. So my question is when is the best age to get your puppy fixed? She had a large breed of dog. I also told her to change vets.
