O.K. I just got off the phone with them and they said she was spayed "per teh owner"…Argh! I can't really find a scar. And she has her Due Claws(spell?)...She is swollen down there, and not complaining a bit. The SPCA said to call and tomorrow,a nd they will mail the certificate to have her spayed there. I am so angry! Why do they trust owners who drop off many dogs at one time. Did the vet not look at her? O-well...She could have gotten prego's in that kennel(SPCA)...I didn't know they only have heat approx every 6-9 months. We've only had her since Mid-Oct.. I'll keep you posted. Its heat! I just know it is!
Most Basenjis usually only have a season once a year…. some have twice a year, but typically only once and usually in the Fall. But there are those Basenjis that don't read the book... but sounds like she is in season to me. And you can't have her spayed while she is in season, so you need to be careful with her around any other dogs that might be in tact.... Honestly too, I can't find the scars on my kids after I have had them spayed.
And one other FYI, you might want to consider having her spayed with your own Vet, this is not a slam against the SPCA or any other SPCA, however sometimes they do not use the best of Vets for spay/neuter surgeries. And while it is a routine surgery, if not done right you can have problems for the rest of her life with her leaking urine....
