Hi Estelle,
It is actually better to spay her before she goes
into estrus (heat) or oestrus as you say over there.
If she is already in heat than the sooner the better.
The longer one waits the higher the risk of anemia and
bleeding complications during the surgery.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
