    Technically dogs don't get menstrual cycles, they get estrus (AKA "heat"). Just saying. ^^; Definitely not too late, but something you may want to inquire about is the possibility of how well she'll handle the anesthesia.

    she may never stop. they don't go through menopause. but sometimes they can get a prolapse uterus or infection and then you have to do a spay.

    not too late to have her fixed, but as it was said already, check with the vet about the anesthesia. There are a lot more precautions to take with an older dog and surgery.
