Hi!

Fortunatly she's only in her "period"... So! we have to change the appointement to get spay (was suppose to be the 10 of may... now it will be end of june beginning of july!).

Does anyone have suggestion to help me and her? I already wrap the pillow(couch). We also going to try those pad they sell in petstore but I know some like, some don't! Any other info could help me. It's my first time !
Thank You!!

keep her away from other dogs as she will attract them.

Why can't you get her spayed? I thought I had one more month before my girl when into heat, but then I heard some weird noise and found them stuck together... at any rate, we took her the next day to get spayed and they didn't care that she was in heat.

But definitely keep her away from other dogs. I have four dogs, three male two are the sons of the girl and the other is the brother (I adopted the brother and sister and she was four weeks pregnant) At any rate, the two boys will not stop trying to get her, and theyre only four months old -- its actually a bit amusing now though that she's spayed.

I called the vet and she told me we have to wait before she get spay...It'S not that I want to wait...but she said we have to..

When the bitch is on heat her hormones will be all over the place, when you spay her you are preventing the hormones from changing in the future, so the hormones they have when they are spayed are the ones they have for the rest of their life, so its important to spay at the right time. I think though that maybe the operation is more risky when they are on heat? more chance of blood loos or something? (Think of PMS for the rest of your life!!)

You cant spay a dog that is in heat. The ovaries etc are too swollen. They do sell pads she can wear, but so that her vulva etc gets air, take it off at night. Here is the link. Thats the draw back with them. Pick a time ( I use night time) to take it off. http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...xt=diapers&N=2 there are several types.
Also- I put comforters down on the floor. Although it looks like thick blood- its more water and enzymes than anything. It works and doesnt soak through. Here is a picture of what I did.

You can bathe a dog while in heat. Use oatmeal shampoo, but just dont uh soap that area but it can rinse off.

Glad you will be spaying your dog. When your dog goes outside make sure you have her on a short leash, so you can make sure no males come and get her. Amazing how much traveling males to do get females. I bought some really cheap diapers for Zoey, and then cut a hole in the end for her tail. Thank God she is spayed and I don't have to go through that anymore!
