Dogs In Heat

Updated on July 21, 2016

Dogs In Heat

Having grown up in a house full of dog lovers and breeding beagles I have learned a few things about dogs in heat that I would like to pass on. So if your dogs in heat, this is where to get some answers. Love your dog!

For dogs in heat/season info read on.

What Is Heat?

How To Know When Your Dogs In Heat

Estrus ("heat") is the mating period of female animals. When estrus occurs, animals are said to be "in heat" or "in season." Dogs generally have their first estrous cycle at 6-12 months of age. Large breeds may not have their first estrus until they are 12-24 months of age.

Female dogs in heat are somewhat similar to a human female in menstruation. During the "heat" cycle, the dog may became pregnant.

The estrous cycle:

1. Proestrus: Starts with the appearance of vaginal bleeding. It normally lasts from 4 to 9 days. Increased swelling of the vulva and possibly an increase in urination. Male dogs become very persistent, but she will not yet mate with them.

2. Estrus: The female will accept the male and conception can occur. The vaginal discharge is more yellowish than bloody. Usually, the stage lasts for 4 to 13 days. Your female will allow any male dog to breed with her at this time.

Metestrus and anestrus: Periods of ovarian activity, but with no symptoms. False pregnancies can occur during metestrus.

Symptoms:

The dog will bleed from the vagina, may have swelling of the vulva and increased urination.

Small dogs will of course have less bleeding and the swelling may be harder to spot.

For a better understanding of Dogs In Heat

To get a detailed knowledge on all doggy matters it is an owners must to buy one of the books below. These are truly informative and extremely easy to read. It is simple and effortless to look something up or just gradually work through one of these books. My personal recommendation is the Newfoundlands book as it covers everything you need to know.

Can a dog get pregnant in her first heat?

Dogs in heat -First Time Pregnancy?

YES! First heat can vary greatly dog to dog. The youngest is about six months of age though sometimes a female will come into season younger. First heat can start as late as 12 or even 14 months of age or later in rare cases. Although it is not advisable to breed dogs until they are about 2 years old.

How Long Does Heat Last?

If your dogs in heat, how long will it last?

The heat period varies from 8 to 30 days with an average of about 20 days. Most female dogs will allow breeding around 10 to 16 days after start of the cycle.

You should consider your pet to be "in heat" for 21 days: 7 days coming into heat, 7 days in heat, 7 days going out. Though conception is most likely during the middle 7 days. If you want to ensure that your dog will not become pregnant, you should keep her confined for the entire 3 week period. Again, not all dogs follow with the norm. Watch your female and record her cycle. It will usually stay the same throughout her lifetime.

Great Doggy must haves

The FURminator deShedding Tool

is essential grooming equipment for all dog owners. It reduces shedding by up to 90%. The FURminator works by removing the dead loose undercoat while leaving the topcoat of hair undamaged. It is far superior than any comb or brush and that is way I have bought one myself. They are effective for both long and short haired dogs. What's more they promote healthier skin by bringing out the dog's natural oils.

Spaying

Dogs in heat, spaying

If you have no intentions on breeding your female, then it is best to get her spayed. The are no benefits on waiting and it is recommended that you get her spayed before her first heat cycle. Mainly for health reasons. Decreased chance of having mammary tumors. No chance of getting pyometra and metritis. And of course, the best reason is to stop unwanted litters. Overpopulation is is a large problem throughout the United States.

For more information on spaying/neutering please read these following articles:

Wikipedia article on spaying

Spaying operation guide by a qualified vet

Neutering

Dogs in heat, neutering

A male dog who has had both testicles surgically removed, and is not capable of producing offspring. Also known as castration.

Neutered dogs are much happier when their hormones are not raging.

Neutered males will show a decrease in the desire to mark territory. This includes inside the house.

They are less aggressive without the raging testosterone.

A dog who has been neutered young is much calmer. He no longer roams the streets in search of a female, reducing risk of being hit by a car, getting in fights with other males, getting lost or taken.

Overall, a neutered dog is a much happier dog, as well as their owners.

Common Questions about dogs in heat/season

10 Common Questions Most Asked

1. At what age do female dogs first go into heat?

As early as six months of age. Most dogs are sexually mature by one year of age, but some dogs may not reach sexual maturity until 18 months of age.

2. How many times a year do female dogs go into heat?

This varies from dog to dog, but typically female dogs go into heat one to four times per year.

3. During what times of the year can a female dog get pregnant?

The heat cycles of most dogs are not affected by the season. So, dogs can potentially become pregnant at any time of the year.

4. What is the gestation period for a pregnant dog?

58 to 68 days. 65 days is average.

5. Can dogs become pregnant while they are nursing puppies?

Unlike cats, dogs are very unlikely to become pregnant while they are nursing. However, they can go into heat and become pregnant as early as three months after giving birth.

6. At what age do unspayed female dogs stop giving birth to puppies?

Fertility gradually declines over time, there is no particular age after which a female dog can no longer become pregnant.

7. Can dogs from the same litter mate and produce litters?

Yes!

8. If my dog is pregnant, can she be spayed?

Yes. The surgery, however, can be slightly more difficult in a pregnant dog. This is one reason why it is so important to have your dog spayed before her first heat.

9. Can dogs be spayed/neutered if they've been sick?

Yes, but it is a good idea to wait a little while.

10. Should I allow my female dog to have one litter before spaying her?

No. There is absolutely no benefit to the dog in doing this.

What to do when your dog is in heat?

Once you have noticed the signs mentioned above and realised that your dog is in heat, what should do? How should you care for your dog?

Well there is nothing to worry about and you be shouldn’t concerned as long as you act correctly.

A warning, while your dog is in heat it releases a hormone to entice the male dogs. Therefore, it is not advised to let your dog out alone otherwise the male dogs will go crazy for her. To resolve this, whenever you take your dog out, walk her on a leash. To disguise the scent of the hormone released, try rubbing some menthol onto the tip of her tail, this should mask the smell.

Dogs in heat are much more emotional, they can swing from being more excitable to being more cautious and anxious. To calm your dog try to avoid letting young kids play with the dog as they probably won’t be sufficiently sensitive with the dog and may irritate it. Positive actions to relax the dog involve, playing soothing music and brushing the dog’s coat.

Do dogs go through menopause if they havn't been spayed?

No. Dogs will not lose their ability to become pregnant at any age. The dog's fertility slowly declines which is not comparable to humans, whose eggs are no longer being produced. Therefore if you have an older dog she must be spayed if you don't want her to have any more litters.

      Hi, interesting information. Do you have any tips for getting the seemingly uninterested (or maybe lazy) male to mate with my daughter's female that should be more than ready to accept him anytime? He gives up before he even gets started even when the female is standing and waiting for him.

      There is actually a good reason to wait past the first heat cycle before spaying your female dog IF your dog suffers from vaginal discharge. If the dog is spayed before her first heat and she suffers from this discharge, it is better to let her go through her first heat, allowing her hormones to change, eliminating her discharge. If you do not allow her hormones to change during her first heat, she may suffer from vaginal discharge (urinary tract infections) her entire life. If she doesn't suffer from the discharge, by all means have her spayed before her first heat!

      My pup, cocker spaniel, is going through her first heat cycle, everything seems to be going well. But she has had some changes in her character, a bit more aggressive/possesive of her toys. Is that normal, should i expect this to continue when her cycle is done, is it temporary or should i be concerned about it being something permanent?

      hi! very useful info thanks. I have a 8 month old miniature dacshund and I am a first time female dog owner. I have only owned male dogs until this year. So her heat is a first for both of us! Now if you know wiener dogs you know that their lap companions, she's always wanting to be right on or next to me. So her 1st heat is a little difficult for me with the bleeding and all! Lets just say she started her bleeding in my bed last night! Not a pleasant thing to wake up to and i've tried pinning some small human underwear with a hole cutout for the tail, but she keeps taking them off! I need some different suggestions and i can't even keep her in a separate room she constantly whines, so crate confinement is definitely out. What should I do?

      my 7 month old westie/bichon just went into heat and she is wearing the same garment as your dog. All that I can say is thank god for these garments. Otherwise, one would have to confine their dog to one area for 3 to 4 weeks. Anyway, I find my pup is now moody.

      [in reply to lisa] Are you kidding? There is no way he will calm down when he is anywhere close to her. If he can smell her scent, then he will want to get to her.

      [in reply to ajdc] You'll have to wait and see, but it would be my guess that unless you take steps now to prevent the aggressive behavior, this behavior will become normal for her.

      [in reply to nicole] Nicole - my dog is 3 1/2 now and I have had many periods with her. I have tried EVERYTHING with her and I have found the BEST solution for the bleeding. I bought the childrens "pull up" diapers. They are perfect. Cut a hold in the flatter side right in the middle for her tail. Then put her legs through the leg holes and the tail through the hole you created. They fit perfect (of course you need to buy the right weight size) and they are harder for them to get off. I put them off and on when she goes out and they last like one per day or 2. Good luck - they really work great.

      Try using little boys underwear with a panty liner (eg; Light Days) When your dog is in heat. The pants are washable, and can be used ove, the panyliner are cheap.You can stick the panty liner in place put them on backwards and pull her tail through the pee pee hole. It works fantasticly!

      [in reply to Cassey] Same as I said to Tiffany, sounds like you should take her to see a vet. Some dogs do have changes in their estrus cycles or the length estrus associated with hormonal problems, usually low thyroid hormone levels called hypothyroidism Sorry to Tiffany, I should have put this in her reply also.

      [in reply to Mellissa] Sounds more of a psychological problem than a physical one. You should have her checked out by a vet to be sure, but I think you should watch the Dog Whisperer. You can go to his website to get information on how to curb the bad behavior.

      Finding information about how to take care of the male dog has been very hard so i am letting you know my experience. My son has 2 pits one of each species. The male is 3 yrs and the female is now a yr. The first heat cycle wasn't to bad. But this 2nd one is terrible. We are at the point where the male whines and barks all day, wont eat or sleep and wont take the time to drink and go outside to pee or poop in fear some other dog will get his girl. Not only is he aggressive and stressed out, so am I. They usually only get locked in there kennels when we are sleeping or gone, but the last 4 days i have had to kennel them side by side to keep the barking and whining at bay and i have a blanket draped over the males cage where he can only see out the front of it and the sides bottom just so he knows his girl is still there. That seems to keep him quieted down for the most part. I just found out to put a little vicks menthol rub on top of his nose and a little under her tail to block some

    • profile image

      sandyhay00 8 years ago

      continued: I let them both out at the same time but i lock the puppy up in bathroom so the male gets some exersize running around the house and eventually he drinks and goes to the bathroom. then i bring him in and lock him back up in the kennel and let the puppy roam for about an hour to eat drink and go to the bathroom then i lock her back in her kennel. and about every 3 hours i do this giving them what they need and giving me peace of mind for a couple hours at a time. I hope this helps you with any male questions you may have.

      [in reply to susan] From the sound of it your dog is trying to dominate you. Next time she starts to hump your leg, take her immediately to the ground on her side and hold her there until she relaxes. This will give you dominance over her and she should not hump you anymore. It may take a few times doing this for her to get the message. Important- only use enough force in holding her down to keep her there. As she relaxes, so should you. Let me know how it goes.

      My 7 month old female beagle went into pre-heat about 2 weeks ago. The only way we knew was that our 2 year old male would not leave her alone. We are sure they did not "connect". Now the female started bleeding on Friday and the male is not that interested anymore. She has a swollen vulva and now she humps him. So how can we identify the next heat coming as it seems like the first 2 weeks are when we really had to watch. We do not want her to get pregnant until she is almost 2 years old.

      We have a 6 month old female English Bulldog who has entered her first heat. She started with slight swelling and a few drops of blood last Wednesday night. Now she is flowing very heavily to what I had expected. My question is how much blood is normal and what is abnormal? Everything online seems to state that smaller dogs should hardly bleed at all, but nothing about mid sized or large dogs. I hate to rush her to the vet for them to say she is just having her period! But she is flowing now like a human period in my opinion. Thanks for any help!

      Thank you for this lens, its very informative. When my jack russell bitch is in heat, she gets depressed, she just seems a bit under the weather. I would have her neutered but she has a heart murmur (I worry about her not coming out of the anesthetic) so we just keep her inside or on a leash only. As soon as she finishes, she is back to her normal happy self!

      Best wishes,

      [in reply to Kathy S] Dogs can go into heat in as little as 3 months after giving birth. It is highly unlikely that a dog that is nursing will become pregnant.

      [in reply to Sara] I've had dogs with very little bleeding and some with very heavy flows. This is normal. Is she eating and drinking normally?

      Any signs of lethargy, discomfort , not eating or drinking or excess drinking then take her to the vets to rule out Pyrometra. Pyometra is a bacteria infection in a dog's uterus.

    • profile image

      anonymous 8 years ago

      Jim,

      Thanks so much for your reply. Bulldogs in general drink A LOT..so it is hard to gauge excess consumption because what she drinks and eats is always viewed as excess to me! But we will certainly watch for the other symptoms. Other than the bleeding, she seems her normal self. Her "diapers" will not stay on any longer than 20 minutes, so she has been secluded and kenneled a lot, this has not even seemed to bother her..so I think all is on the up and up! Thanks again for this great lens!

      i have a nine year old jack russell bitch, i wanted to know at what age do females stop coming on heat.

      I have a 1 1/2 year old Golden Retriever. I just nocticed that she started bleeding on Friday, March 6th. We have been keeping her in to keep her from getting pregnant, but she was let out of our garage by a vsitor when we were not home on Sunday, March 8th. Can she get pregnant that early in her cycle? Does the cycle start when they start bleeding or a few days before? Is there any way to tell if she is already pregnant? If she is already pregnant can anything be done to terminate the pregnancy without getting her fixed?

      [in reply to karen reed] Fertility gradually declines over time, there is no particular age after which a female dog can no longer become pregnant. As far as getting her spayed, yes I would. Will her temperament change? I've had dogs that changed, some that stayed the same and some that no change was evident.

      [in reply to Midhelle] Females usually won't allow any male to mate with her until about 4 days into her cycle. Could your dog be pregnant? Doubtful but slightly possible. If it turns out that she is pregnant I would let her have her pups then have her fixed. Most vets will not get rid of the pups without spaying her at the same time.

      We have a 10 month old Aussie Shepherd bitch. She showed some spotting at 6 months, but it didn't last long (10 days maybe), and didn't seem to attract males, though we also have a male Aussie Shepherd, about 9 months, who seemed more interested in her at the time. She was bigger than him at the time and would never let him mount. We thought that was her first heat, just a light short cycle.

      Now she appears to have just started another cycle. Evidence of spotting again and swelling of the vulva. Have not noticed an increase in urination, but have seen a noticeable reduction of appetite. Our male hasn't exhibited heightened interest in her yet, but I think we are only 4 to 5 days into it. She is bigger than him now, so he will get his way this time. We would like to have a litter with the two of them, but have been told to wait at least one heat, preferably longer.

      Is it possible she is in heat 3 months after her first cycle? Was her first cycle a phantom cycle? Advice?

      JimD 8 years ago

      [in reply to MIcG] Females can be in heat from 1 to 4 times a year. So, it is within the norm for her cycle to be every 3 months. Don't worry. I've found that if you wait to mate until she is around 2 years old, the pregnancy will go smoother for her and her pups.

      I have a 2 year old min. dachshund female in heat and 2 male daschunds in my home. One of the males is 11 years old and the other is 1 yr. I would like her to mate with the young one, however, when he tries she attacks him. She instead goes to the older male and jumps on him or allows him to approach her without attack. Neither male has been successful in mating with her thus far (not for the lack of trying). Any advice on how to get her to accept the younger male? (I've even tried holding her for him but she still turns on him) Thank you for any advice!

      [in reply to Andrea] Most female dogs will allow breeding around 10 to 16 days after start of the cycle. Your female will allow any male dog to breed with her at this time. If you want her to mate with the younger male, then you must keep the older dog away.

      I have a 6-7 month old female beagle. Recently she began growling and nipping our daughters ages 7-13. I have trained them on how to treat the dog. Could this be related to first estrus? I have no intention of breeding her, but can't yet afford to spray. She is never "free" always leashed. The only symptom listed here of possible estrus that I have seen is frequent urination. I am so frustrated with the behavior problems and don't know what to do. We've had her since 3 mo.

      I have a 1 1/2 year old Doberman. The vet told me when I got her in September that she had already had one heat cycle, and that she should go into heat every 6 months. I've now had her for 7, and no bleeding. The only male dog she is around is fixed, so I haven't really noticed any extra attention towards her. Do all female dogs bleed while in heat, and should I be concerned that she hasn't gone into heat since I've had her?

      I have a 13 year old active female toy poodle. She is in heat at the present time and drives us crazy. We also have a spayed 2 year old female dog that she is trying to mess with. My question is: My poodle has never been pregnant, as we choose not to go there. We also choose not to have her spayed, (which now I wished I would have done!) we were told that having her spayed could change her personality. Will she ever quit going into heat? I am afraid to have her spayed now at her age. Is there anything we can do for this conditon? She is waking us up at night wanting to go outside. She stays out for 5 minutes or so, and then comes back in goes to sleep. She has been in heat for about 15 days. Any answers for us?

      [in reply to Pat Kalamvocas] Yes, if you get her spayed while she is pregnant this will abort the pups. However, the vet will probably charge more if she is pregnant. In your current financial situation, I would advise that you keep the dogs separated until she has finished her cycle. Then get her spayed. Check around your area to find a low cost vet. You can probably find a vet to do it for under $100.00. Good luck.

      My Lhasa Apso has never been spayed and at 7 she still has the same cycle. My question is what makes her attack pillows for weeks during and after the cycle. Any pillow or puffy item, even oour Golden Retriever is not safe. We need help to stop her from doing this... Getting her spayed is not in the current budget so this will have to be a preventative solution.

      How long it is preferable to wait after heat before spaying a dog? My girl is in heat for 19 days now and one vet says it is ok to spay now and the other says that if I spay while she is in heat or immediately after, it will cause problems and may cause excessive bleeding while at surgery. Another question - if I wait to spay her for a couple of month after heat - what are the odds for a false pregnancy? What are the odds for a false pregnancy if she is spayed while in heat?

      [in reply to Doreen Valenty] The heat period varies from 8 to 30 days with an average of about 20 days. Most female dogs will allow breeding around 10 to 16 days after start of the cycle.

      You should consider your pet to be "in heat" for 21 days: 7 days coming into heat, 7 days in heat, 7 days going out. Though conception is most likely during the middle 7 days. If you want to ensure that your dog will not become pregnant, you should keep her confined for the entire 3 week period. Again, not all dogs follow with the norm. Watch your female and record her cycle. It will usually stay the same throughout her lifetime.

      I rescued a dog 3 weeks ago while on vacation. I know very little about her ie age ect. I took her to a vet when I rescued her to have her checked, wormed, and whatever else was needed until I got home. She went into heat on the way home. its been about two weeks. I have an appointment to have her spayed (the vet I took her to said she doesn't do the operation while she is in heat??????????) I just moved here myself and don't really know the vet all that well but she takes care of my four other dogs. I kept the new dog away frommy two male dogs, but one of my male dogs broke my bedroom door and got to her. What are the chances that she is pregnant? And if she is pregnant is there a way to terminate the pregnancy? I have (now) 5 rescued dogs and do not want any puppies. Please let me know your thoughts...I do have an appointment with another vet on Monday. Thank You

      This might be a bit late, but if anyone else was wondering- our little bitch becomes hugely swollen, first heat she had I wondered if it could return to normal! So I would say it is about 4 times bigger, really puffed up. I didn't want to have her neutered, but a very inconvenient thing that is happening is she is pestering her (neutered) brother all the time during the heat, they 'mate' and tie and in the excitement one of them often seems to pee on the floor and the whole season seems to last longer each time. :( [in reply to Diane]

      I have a shih Tzu puppy. She is about about six months old and started her first cycle tonight i don't know much about it but have been reading on it. We do intened to breed her but she is pretty small. So should i get her dippers or something so she doesn't bleed all over or will she not bleed very much? Or is there any additional info you could give me about her?

      Hey i have a question.. Will a female dog mate with a dog she doesn't really like? We are planning on letting our dog have one litter of puppies then getting spayed so we are going to breed her with a little Jack Russell that my friend owns but i don't think she likes him very much like my dog has been over there while i have been on vacation but yeah so ??

      @anonymous: You shouldn't breed your dog until she is at least 2 yrs old, as for the diapers, you can go to the pet store and buy reusable doggie diapers and buy girly pads from the store so that you can just change the pad, cheaper that way. Also read online, ask questions, that's how I learned a lot of what I know, LOTSA reading, LOL!!!! Good Luck

      I told my dumb fiancé, not to put our male dog with our girl dog. she is 10 months and is her first time in heat. he thought he was smart and put a diaper on her, i told him that will not work, you must keep them apart until she is done with her cycle, he felt bad keeping them a part and like an idiot let them loose and expected me to watch them, sure enough i am calling their names and through the diaper he attached himself to her. now i am worried that she can become pregnant at such an early age, we did everything we could to get them apart which we did and then put her back in the big kennel we have to separate them, but if it still possible being the short amount of time they were stuck for her to still get prego? and is it possible she may not live or the puppys may not live because she is not fully grown>? is there anyway to tell she is prego and how soon will i know?

      @anonymous: Yes, she probably got pregnant. She should be fine, but you should have not separated them, for you could tear her. The puppys could be fine, but it is just hard on a puppies body to have puppies at a young age. Keep the dates handy and contact your vet. Puppies arrive from 59-63 days. I do believe at about 2 weeks or so, you can get an x-ray (more reliable than ultrasound) to see how many puppies. There is a couple of options for you. 1. Spay her 2. They can abort the puppies later on in the pregnancy with risks 3. Have the puppies and deal with the mistake.

      @anonymous: Until this passes I would try to calm the dog or scold him (nicely) when he tries. When he is nuetered he should stop after he recovers from the simple surgery. He may show some confusion after though. But after they are fixed they show no more interest in this. If it continues it may be a medical problem and you should contact a vet.

      @anonymous: If its her fisrt heat there is a good chance she will become pregnant. There is no problem with her having it so early. Having heat shows they are ready. If you spay her before she has time to have the puppies they will not be born, but it will be a harder surgery, if its a very small dog like a chihuahua i recommend talking to a vet. B/c it may be to much for them. Hopes this helps

      @anonymous: well it sounds like to me that you want him to be interested in her and just so you know the vet would rather spay her before her first heat than after due to health risk it is better to spay before the first heat they can even spay her while shes in heat..... you need to at least wait until she is a year old she to young at five months it is a bad ideal to let them breed now. she's not going to know what to do and she may lose all the pups and you may lose her also. if you read the info at the top of this where it says how long does a heat cycle last it tells you what you need to know but you need to keep them separated fore the next 15-18 days or your going to have issues it's a bad ideal it's worth the wait if you are wanting to breed them and it's a very beautiful thing to watch the birthing of lil' baby puppies but you have to study up on breeding and prepare your self before you start I'm just tryin to save you some money and heartache because there are many thing besides the mommy or the puppies dying at birth the might live for a month then get an intestinal parasite and lose all of your dogs I have seen this happen and it's heart breaking really if you love your canine friends as much as I do it's worth the wait i swear... and it will change if she's been bleeding for 5 days then on the 7th or 8th day she will start to attract every male in your neighborhood so just read up on breeding before you start and it will help next time when she's ready she will be in heat for at least 21days..... goodluck ps please think about her she's still a baby her self she's still learning and she can't raise pup's if she's still learning herself.....

      @anonymous: Hi MW from CA. Unfortunately yes a female on heat will bleed everywhere, not just when going to the toilet. This will generally last throughout the cycle. I've always found that the first cycle seemed to be the worse, and each cycle after that seemed to be a little bit less. For example, my dog is in her third cycle at the moment and there is much less blood compared to the last two cycles. If your dog is an inside dog and you have carpet it can be a bit messy. All part and parcel of being a dog owner and lover I suppose. Hope that helps.

      hello. my name is kim. my dog is an 11 yr old chiquaqua/snauzner(i think) mix. her name is Gizmo. i have had her since she was born. she has had 2 liters. of the hundreds i've read, yours is the only one that came close to talking about the emotional side verses the physical one. this has been a weird one. i have been VERY worried.one moment she is jumping around, cold wet nose. the next she is lathargic, dry warm nose. her imploring looks will break ur heart. hasn't wanted to eat, and she LOVES her food. whe vertually ignores me, and goes to my boyfriend and will literally whine and jump in his face. only wants him. does want to get on the bed, go out, and i just wanted some insight or suggestions as to if this is normal and i have just been lucky for the last 10 yrs. thanks so much. kim brush. my email is kizzimoro@yahoo.com or kmcdonald69@live.com.

      I have a female shitzu she is 9 months, I noticed a couple of weeks ago her vulva was swollen. We had the every dog in the neighboorhood hanging outside. One was even brave enough to approach her while on leash and she stuck her but in his face. Someone i know has her sister (from same litter) and their girl has been in heat. My question is...mine never bled. I never saw any and she sleeps on my bed, my carpet is beige. Is this normal, just a little concerned. I thought maybe some how she had gotten pregnant, but I read that you bleed before that.????? Thanks!!!

      @anonymous: Rubbing menthol to the end of the females tail will help disguise the scent of her being in heat. If your dogs are kept in the same household, they need to be separated to prevent a pregnancy. You should not even think about breeding until she is at least 2 years of age. As far as your male, he is not "in heat", only females go into heat. He is just sensing that she is ready.

      MY female beagle is going to be fixed next week, but she just went into heat and my male beagle is very clingy to her. He looks like he is attached to the hip. Today my daughter had her male Bischon over, my male beagle went after him and they fought. I have never seen my beagle that aggressive. My daughters' dog was bitten on the neck, I called my vet, explained the wound and he said I did what needed to be done, as long as he is not bleeding, he will be fine until tomorrow, when I will take him in.. Will my beagle be like this all the time now? Before this the two males were always playing together

      My miniature dachshund has been in heat for about 2 weeks. i have kept her separated from the male dog in the house and have made "diapers" out of socks. unfortunately they got the diaper off and instantly they locked. we figured that after they locked there would be no more interest and didn't take our usual precautions, but today the same thing happened. this is her first heat. how likely is it that she will become pregnant? also, if pregnant, will she be taken out of heat? if so, how long will this take? thank you so much.

      @anonymous: she will most likely be pregnant. If they have locked they have mated at a time when she is standing - ie she is fertile.

      @anonymous: he will be aggressive until she is out of heat and is no longer the one who is the leader of the pack and has claimed the female to be his. If you are not wanting puppies i would suggest you separate them asap. Also it would be advisable to wait until she is out of season to have her spayed. But please keep har away from the males if you are not wanting puppies.

      @anonymous: the menthol will not work if the other dogs are in the house. It is a slight detourant for the dogs outside if you walk her. Separate them ...they cannot be together if you want her to not have puppies. I would suggest you keep them apart for the duration of her season - which is roughly a 21 day cycle - or else you will have puppies - if she is more than 9 days into her heat this may already have occurred....and there after get her spayed. She will always cause a fight between the males when she is on heat. GET HER SPAYED

      Has she been on heat, and is there a way that a male can get onto your property. - if so - she has most likely mated and you should expect puppies within a week, if she is as far along as it sounds. Take her to a vet to check it out

      @anonymous: sometime a citch has what they call a silent heat. This means that as she is very young she has a cycle without bleeding or minimal bleeding. As she is very young she may not concieve if she has had any male tie with her. However it is possible for them to become pregnant on the first season. I would suggest taking her to a vet after 21 days - they can't tell before then. and see what they say.

      @anonymous: ok if she is 4 months old she will most likely not be in heat - unless she is a very small breed - but you said he is in heat - the 4 year old?? Males don't have a heat cycle. If you meant 'she' well..keep the 2 separated if she is in heat. The menthol thing means - you take something that has a pepperminty - menthol smell and you rub a bit - with your hands onto her tail, before a walk. This will NOT work for two dogs on the same premises as he will smell i in her urine etc

If u are sure well - he is a lucky fella - they don't allow a male until the 8th to 14th day depending on the bitch. as well as the fact that the vulva should not be penetratable on this day. Well if he has succeeded despite all these challenges - I would suggest you take her to a vet as this is not usual and he has possibly hurt her 'bits'

      @anonymous: that is an interesting question. What i have noticed with my dogs is that sometimes some males tend to be more interested than others. I don't think there is anything wrong with your male. I own whippets and what i have noticed is that one of my males will completely ignore a female in heat while another one of them goes crazy and will do anything to mate with her.

      Do you want your dog to get pregnant? If you do, please think about...

      1. All the poor dogs in the shelter that don't have homes and are getting euthanized everyday

      2. Puppies are HARD work, you have to find homes, get them vaccinated and sometimes many things can go wrong.

      3. Most breeders find they tend to lose more money than gain it (because of all the vaccinations, food, etc)

      4. Do you know your dogs background?? There could be thousands of medical problems and pugs tend to get lots of "hip" problems (grandmother owned them)

      I'd advise looking at this website " http://www.k9web.com/dog-faqs/breeding.html "

      It can really give you some facts!

      well good luck with your pugs, and if you want pups, i hope your male dog cooperates! but please- to anybody breeding their dogs out there, PLEASE breed only to "improve" the breed and know what you are doing so nothing bad happens to your loving female(s)!!

      I hope this helped a little, so don't give up hope!

      @anonymous: Well I've never had any of my dogs go into heat right after whelping a litter but i'd advise keeping your male locked up. It is very, very hard on your dog if she has a litter of puppies so soon after her last and it can cause lots of problems for her and/or the pups especially since she is only a year old. If you want to breed her again, I'd definitely advise waiting until she is around three or four so she can be both physically and mentally mature enough to have another litter. Good luck to you and your girl!

      I have a toy min-pin that was from an abusive home - don't know for sure, but think she is about 9 years old. She had not been spayed and now that she is older, I am afraid to have her spayed, fearing complications. Anyway, I have tried those little "panties" and also doggie diapers and sometimes she just walks out of them or manages to get them off by walking through a narrow passageway (furniture legs etc) - she is really funny about it and I find diapers and/or panties hidden all over the place. While this may be somewhat humorous, I am trying to figure out what I can use on her during her heat to protect our furniture. By the way, as for the doggie diapers, they have a hole cut in for a tail which might work fine for dogs with longer tails, but she has a little nub of a tail, so the hole doesn't really help. I have tried newborn diapers, but they don't go up the back enough - they will stay on while she's sitting next to me, but when she's in motion, they come right off. Any ideas?

      I have a year old Siberian husky female, and she is in heat. She is generally a fun loving dog, but since she has come into heat, she has been nipping and growling at my husband. Her behavior is no different toward me, however. My husband will try to pet her, and she will growl, and as soon as I come near, she hides behind me, still growling at him. Why is this? Is it normal?

      @anonymous: I have a Giant Schnauzer who will not fit even the largest of the "doggie diapers." Like your dog, she too has a nub of a tail. What I have come to do is buy her human pantes (for you this may mean small childrens underwear). I place a pantyliner in them and then put them on her. Because they don't fit perfectly, I use a hair tie to gather the excess underwear into a little "nub" on the center of her back. She does not mind them at all and seems to know that they are there to help (my dog's really sensitive about making a mess). She does sometimes manage to get out of them, though only during the night when we sleep. During the day whenever I see they are "slipping," I just give them a yank up and on her way she goes. Good luck, hope this idea was helpful.

      Hey, i have a female pitbull she's 1 year and 4 months old. Her First heat cycle was on September 7th of 2009. Her next heat cycle was due March 7th 2010. She missed her heat cycle and we took her to the vet and ask him and he said that she is just coming into heat late. As of now she still hasn't came into her 2nd heat cycle. My question is, how late are female pitbulls usually for their heat cycle?

    • profile image

      anonymous 7 years ago

      @anonymous: Female dogs usually tend to have their heat cycles less each year if they stop being around other male dogs. Female dogs will continue having their heat cycles until spayed by the vet. So if you wish for your females to stop coming into heat, the best way to prevent this is to having them spayed.

      @anonymous: It's normal for the female to not accept the male during their first week into their heat cycle. If she's later into her heat cycle and still isn't excepting him, a lot of people i know just hold the female into place and let the male just mount her and get it over with and then 2 months later..she has her pups.

      Just a few months ago I fostered a pregnant shelter dog that was about to be euthanized because of a severe kennel cough. Right after she came to my home, she gave birth to 7 pups! I was a happy "grandma!" It is the most amazing thing to help a dog with her delivery and assist with the little ones. After delivery, I took her to the vet, to have her spayed, so she'll never experience this stress ever again.

      I have a 9 mo old female. She had not shown any sign of being in heat. A week ago my son brought a lost male dog to the house. The male was in the backyard with her for a while. A week later I notice blood spots all over the house. Now she is swollen down there and also her nipples are big and swollen. Still bleeding a little. You don't think she is pregnant do you? Is it normal for the female dogs nipples to be swollen also in heat? Please let me know what you think. Thank you.

    • profile image

      anonymous 6 years ago

      @Mustangbarbie: She more than likely has just started her heat. Keep her far away from any males as she will be receptive to them during this time. Also, she may stop bleeding for a few days and then then a darker brown discharge will happen. If she was left unattended with the male dog at anytime you may have a problem down the road. Keep an eye on her for anymore significant changes and contact your local vet for further advice.

      While she is actively bleeding she is not supposed to be able to become pregnant but the stages where she stops bleeding and then begins a phase with the brown discharge are stages where she can become pregnant. Be very careful. Separate the two dogs and if she is showing anymore signs of abnormal behavior have her checked out by a vet.

      I would get her spayed as soon as possible if you are not planning on showing her or breeding her. Keeping her intact will only increase the likely hood that she will develop uterine or mammory cancers/infections.

      People are having their female dogs spayed way too soon..if you are a responsible dog owner you make sure your dog stays in and you don't don't her to public places..My dog is 6 months old and I wouldn't dream of getting her spayed at the puppy stage.It is a major operation and they need to be older to mentally adjust to this change in their body..People who are saying spay your pet before 6 months is not being fair to their pet they are just thinking of themselves in not having the work..the pet doesn't develop problems as has been suggested with their stomach if they haven't been spayed young..I have pets that have come to me already spayed and I have had a lot of problems with their stomach and health issues etc..I am a responsible dog/cat owner and I have a Siamese cat that has just gone 2 and she goes out and is kept in when in season and she has never got pregnant..she didn't have her first season before 10 months and most animals don't and that's why 6 months is too young..For the record I am getting my Siames spayed next week and feel proud I have waited 2 years..If she was an indoor cat she wouldn't be getting spayed but I have 4 other cats to think about and a pup now and it has been hard work but I love my pets..also some animals have also died after being spayed and have had cancer..we are not talking about countries like greece and the poor strays out there that's a different argument..when you are a pet owner it is totally different..

      We have a 5 month old newfie---(we also have a spayed femal german shephard-1.5yrs and a neutered male lab-7yrs)

      Due to an injury at birth our GS had to have surgery very young and we had her spayed then because it would of hurt her if she were to of ever gotten preg.

      So we have never had a female in heat--will it hurt to leave our newfie with the fixed lab when she goes into heat--and will our German Shephard react differently

      I was glad to read that large dogs often go into heat much older because she is so much a baby now

      @anonymous: Debi, it sounds like she is not only in heat but it sounds as if she has a bladder infection. A bladder infection will make her lick and chase and act crazy. Plus it can be smelly. I would take her to the vet and have them diagnose. She would need antibiotics to have it go away. Believe me she would feel much better. Good luck.

      Debi, take her to the vet. She may be in heat but this sounds like something else going on. It sounds like she has a bladdar infection which will not just go away. She needs antibiotics to have it go away. My female was chasing her tail and consistently licking and acting like she was going crazy. Smelt too. I found out it was a bladdar infection and she stiill acted this way until she had taken the full prescription of antibiotics. Now she is no longer actiing like that. Take her to the vet.

      I have a female beagle that just went through her first heat around a month ago. Before she started my mother in law came to visit and she brought her dogs. One being a male. Shortly after she started to bleed. We had left them in the backyard and house a couple times but aftter she started to bleed I put a diaper on her. We thought they hadn't done anything, but now she is swelling in her teats and the narrow part after the rib cage isn't so narrow anymore. Im worried she might be preggers. If she is super! If not super! I don't mind either way.

      My female dobie went into her 1st heat cycle so we scheduled a spay appt. We were told she would stop smelling after she got spayed. That is not the case. I took her to the vet where they ruled out her paws, teeth, skin, and so forth. They say she's expressing her glands. The smell is not like that. it's doesn't smell fishy it smells just like when she was in heat. Hormonal smell that is like a perfume but definitely hormonal. She don't just do it in a cycle anymore. It comes and goes as quickly. the smells driving my hubby crazy. I've owned this breed for most of my life and even had other breeds as a kid and never had this smell problem.

      I have a 3 year old chihuhua and tried breeding with an 11 year old male chihuhua today. Both have never bred before. My female was very accepting and the male knew exactly what to do. He just wouldn't stay mounted on her long enough and it would slip off the bullseye spot. His penis actually ended up becoming fully erected after 2 hours. Is her vulva supposed to be swollen and completely round? Right now it is slightly swollen and dark in color. She is on her 11th day of her heat cycle. It just seems like her vulva wasn't swollen enough for the male to perform successfully. Any suggestions???

      I highly recommend Wonder Wetter Dog Diapers! They were a life safer for my little boy!

      Actually I grew up on a farm and we had kennel dogs, we were the only bording place in town. we never had dogs that territory marked or bled on the floors. It wasn't till I grew up and have a Yorkie now that I know how common this issue is, and frustrating! I have found the best dog diaper in the world though and I thought that I would pass this on to whomever needs them for certain dogs and their issues. My dog is now incontinent so he has to wear one all the time it's called Wonder Wetter. They are waterproof and very absorbent for my little guy who wakes up in the morning soaked at least with Wonder Wetter he can still sleep with me and not get anything on my bed.

      I tried every other diaper and I couldn't keep them on him but these are made unique and work like a dream! Even my little hudini can't get them off :)

      they sell them online now I bought mine at a pet expo in VA. www.wonderwetter.com

My question is; the males are, of course marking, will this stop once the heat is over? These are my son and his roommates dogs and they plan to spay/neuter when they can afford to, but will the "marking stop after the heat until they are neutered or is it a male "thing" that will continue until neutered?

    • profile image

      anonymous 6 years ago

      @anonymous: I am a nurse for humans, an incision should not be bleeding the day after the surgery. I would be concerned. However a dog is more active than a human following surgery and a very small amount seeping from the incision for a day or two may be considered normal, but a week - i would take my dog back to the vet to make sure the incision is intact. I had my dog spaded and there was no bleeding after the surgery at all, even the day the procedure was completed.

      Hi i have a 3 year old bulldog whos started losing white/brown discharge a week ago from her vulva. we took her the vets the day we noticed it he thought it was just her having a clear out before her heat cycle although he gave her antibiotics as a precaution. a week later and the discharge is still there shes really snappy and temperamental and we just wonder is this her season? shes no longer losing brown discharge but losing pink she wasn't due till end of January. any info would be great thanks

      hello m dog is two i tried to breed her (with the same breed of course) she only ended up giving birth to one pup which she lost. do dogs that lose their litter go into heat right away to cover their loss.

      I'm aware it is ill advised to breed during the first cycle, so my question is for a small dog breed (shiba inu), which cycle would be the best to breed at. I was going to wait until she was about 1 1/2 yrs, as of right now she is 6 months and 2 weeks. Is this an appropriate age to breed? Another question the male i have selected for her is about 28 pounds, she is only 15. What is a safe size difference?

      Thanks so much you're a real help,

      Jocelyn

      @anonymous: I have a 7 month old English Bulldog that has just had her first season. From 6 months i noticed a yellowish discharge which gradually turned pink. At 7 months old i knew she was about to come into season as her "lady bits" became so swollen she looked like a well hung boy dog! A few days after the swelling she began to bleed. During this time she became less interested in playing with her toys and enjoyed cuddles and naps. I hope this helps X

      DOGS DO NOT GO INTO HEAT 4X PER YEAR. They go in heat 1 - 2 times per year. This info came from the SAC site and although written by a veterinarian it is INCORRECT!

      When you have your dog neutering your dog does not make him happy. It gives the owner peace of mind. Guys get "neutered" and does that make them less happy......?

      my dog is 9 months old and she went into heat last week on Saturday. My dog is a Shih-tzu and she is lovely although she has gone through mood swings. Is it normal for her private part to swell like bigger than a golf ball? to keep her from putting stains on the carpet is it ok to put a diaper on her? Thanks!!!

      @anonymous: Hello this is Dr. Alice Smith and i just wanted to tell you that i am a Vet at Banfield pet hospital. I just had a lady come in and ask me the same question today. Dogs all have different personalities! just like humans! However when dogs get neutered it means that they are no longer able to mate. same with females. if your dog is the fun playful kind of dog that won't do what you say they will get more mature.

      hope this helps!

      I have an older male and my puppy just went into heat. The male has become very growly and nasty towards her. Is this because of the hormonal scent? What should I do they seem to go at one another every so often. And can I get her spayed after this first heat??

      I am fostering a dog for the local shelter- abuse case dragging out in court. I think she is in heat. She is a bull mastiff, and I found a large pool of what looked like watery blood on her bedding two days ago. I haven't seen any blood since. The stain was about 14" in diameter. Does this sound like Estrus?

      anonymous 5 years ago

      @anonymous: She could be!,there is no sign and she may well spot throughout three weeks,it takes two to tango and sperm can live in the bitch for several days,depends when your bitch ovulates,early in the season or later on in the 21 day cycle.I would get her to the vets if you don't want puppies and give your neighbour the bill if the fencing is theirs and not up to keeping their stock in,your fault if the fencing is yours!

    • profile image

      anonymous 5 years ago

      @anonymous: You don't unless you observe these sins,no spotting at all,vulva back to normal size,21 days have passed.She has stopped peeing every few mins. and whining if she sees a male dog.If you introduce her to a castrated male and he attempts to sniff her handbag at the rear and she spins round and gruffs at him then you are pretty safe.When a bitch is in season and wants a male she will demonstrate very strongly that she wants one and wants it now!!!

      @anonymous: hey sweetie. don't worry about your female dogs humping each other. it happens all the time, nothing bad is going to happen. totally natural and harmless. although you might want to discourage her from doing it, because she could start humping other people's dogs, which is always a little awkward.

        Our dog has recently went into heat. We've never had a female dog and wanted to know if there was anything we can do for her. We have noticed that she seems to be very uncomfortable. After laying with one of us she gets up and starts walking around. Just wanting to know if there is anything we can do for her to help her feel more comfortable.

        Hey, my female lab is 10 and a half months old. She is bleeding. But the main problem is I have another cross breed dog at home. He hates her and barks at her when she approaches him. but lately, I have discovered that he is smelling the bitch's back and licking her toilet. Are there any possibilities that this guy will mate with her and the girl will get pregnant?
