    Do old dogs go on heat

    have a 14 yr old border collie she is constantly licking
    her vagina and panting heavily picks at her food
    there is a small stalky piece of tissue protuding
    from her vulva and a reddish discharge surely she is
    not in heat are her age
    too late to get her spayed?

    She probably is having a period...although 14 is pretty old in dog years.
    I have a female Beagle who licks hers as well but she is far too young for a period yet as she is only 12 weeks!

    With regards to the heavy panting and lack of food, If you have noticed her coughing up flem or vomiting her food, then it may be that she has dog laryngitis. I would ask your local vet
