Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

Out of the 5 of them, not one of them behaves in the same way under the same circumstances. I 'read to them all' but they just don't seem to absorb it the same way I do.

Fortunately, my two males are neutered and I have a pretty sturdy dog run (magnum) to keep her in if I have her that long; am hoping to find her a forever home soon.

Thanks!

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

Is the dogrun outside? With chain link openings? Because they can have at it through the fence, those animals!

Hopefully she will be healthy enough to be spayed before her heat. If the enzymes start to work, I think the recovery can be pretty dramatic.

Good job taking on another toughie!

See, you've taught me already! Yes it is outside; it is a wire mesh; the enzymes have made dramatic improvement. I have tried to contact her previous owner for the vet info who made the diagnosis on EPI; I don't even have any shot records for her so will take her to my vet this week and see what's up.

Thanks for the tip

Could Kyah be going into heat again?

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

When did she cycle last? Not all dogs cycle on a six month schedule. Some have been known to go every 3 or 4 months.

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

Yes.
Sirens sister. (Actually half sister, same sire, different dam) decided to only wait between 2 1/2 and 3 months between heats.

Siren has only been in heat once so far. (Started in mid Feb. and lasted 6 weeks!)
Cheyenne was in heat the first time AFTER Siren, and has already been in TWICE.

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

May!

I am wondering if she is so healthy now, like with us, we can be sickly and not have our periods for a while, then we get healthier and it seems to be a while where it's frequent.

Okay...so it's possible. Regardless of why, it's possible.

Gee, I bet Darcy will be glad to hear that, Val!

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

Bonus!

She has an appt for her Stage 2 Prosthetic fitting on Thursday (and a bit ironic, because she went into heat the day she had her Stage 1 fitting in May, not joking).

My gut says it is another heat, Toby (all boys are neutered) is acting smitten again and she is acting the same way she did in May. I guess her body is telling us she is healthy enough and at a good weight to be able to handle a spay.

She is also seeing Dr. G on 9/8 regarding scheduling a spay.

Re: Dog in Heat for Dummies?

Don't let the vet talk you into spaying her while she is in heat. (Most vets are "spay happy". And will tell you all kinds of things to get you to do it ASAP.)
