For Emily on spay/neuter

Emily, this is the reference you want. I was brewing a big post about it when I got sidetracked by crazy Pattypat breeder below. That CHF paper is by far the best summary of the issues, and I will come back later and go over some of the points that the author unfortunately made less than clear.

  1. I’d asked about this too, so thank you!

    And just as a BTW, when we adopted EllieMae, she was on Proin and a special diet to “control” her urinary incontinence problem… I was told that this was a recent issue and that she might or might not be dealing with it forever. The vet we took her to agreed with this but I suspected her diet & the Elavil she was on were major culprits. And guess what? After we switched her to Canidae + some raw feedings (at least every other day), prevented her from consuming feline “tootsie rolls”, and tapered her off the Elavil/Melatonin/Proin cocktail she was on, she’s never left a wet spot anywhere. *sigh*

  2. oh, and the point of my comment is because I was told that urinary incontinence would just be something I’d have to live with because EllieMae is a spayed female… :-p
