I had my 3 year old bitch spayed two weeks ago today. I also requested that they tack her stomach while they had her opened up. It makes for a bit longer of an incision but she healed nicely. She had her staples out yesterday and we've been cleared to go back to strength training and agility training (jumping low bars for a couple of weeks).

I am very glad we did the stomach tack because it could save her life one day if she were to bloat.

I would be most concerned about spaying a bitch so young. I would want my dogs to be physically mature before I think about altering them.
