How much does it cost to get a female dog spayed?
This is highly dependent on where you live, what the physical status of the dog is (young or old, pregnant or in heat) and what level of preventive measures you wish to be taken during surgery.
For a young dog before her first heat cycle and otherwise in good health in Columbus OH, you could reasonably have this animal spayed for around $125. For an older dog in late term pregnancy or with a complicating chronic disease (such as Cushing's or diabetes), the cost could be up to $500. Also, in general, the cost of everything in the Midwest (such as Ohio) is less than the cost on the coasts (New Jersey, California).
It is advised that you call around to several veterinarians to check prices and services offered - some vets will charge less but won't put an IV line in or will discharge the same day while other vets may charge more but always put in an IV line just in case something goes wrong and keep the dog overnight for observation.

This is one of many reasons to have your dog spayed.
It depends on their weight. Ask your local Animal Shelter when they have the low cost spay & neuter clinics. They are cheaper but you will need a certificate from whoever is funding this project in order to get your dog spayed. Again it is based on weight. Make sure you don't spay her while she is in heat. Good luck.
The simple answer is you can't control whatever behavior you're asking about. When a female dog is in heat, you must be diligent about your supervision, and not let the dog outside alone, even in a fenced in yard. The only sure fire way of controlling a dog's heat cycle, and prevent unwanted liters is to have your female dog spayed. Female dogs gain health benefits from being spayed before the onset of their first…
