    Do you know what implant she has? And how long she's had it?

    I'd be inclined to go for the op while she's young, our bun is 7 years old, so we don't really want to...

    Yes, you're right. Our bun is about to get the implant tomorrow (he's neutered but his testosterone levels are high). It costs 100 every 6 months.
