Will spay terminate pregnancy?

Age: 2-5 years
It is a possibility my dog might be pregnant. But my mom wants to get her spayed ASAP. Will it terminate her pregnancy if gets spayed?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

When we spay a dog what we do is remove the ovaries and the uterus. As fetuses live in the uterus, yes, we would be terminating the pregnancy.
