Hi Amanda,
I, too, favor early spay and neutering. There are many reasons and I investigated/researched a lot before I decided, but now I am firm in the belief that early spay/neuter (ESN) is a responsible thing to do. Many will disagree, so you should do your own research and come to a conclusion that is right for you.
The six month age was established because in those days (at least 20 years ago) they did not have the medical advancements that we have today...nor the anesthesia.
ILA has a good reference page for ESN,
If your vet doesn't want to do may want to consider another, because almost every vet would say to spay/neuter before 6 months of age.
