Default In Heat

So my 11 month old puppy, Izzy is in heat for the first time. I wanted to get her fixed before this happened but money is tight these days. She is bleeding everywhere and its frustrating... anyone have any idea when she'll be done. She went into heat on Tuesday, Dec. 21st, 2010.

She will be in heat for at least three weeks, sometimes as long as a month. The bleeding will let up in about ten days but then you will have to really watch her as that is when she can get bred.

If she's making quite a mess with the bleeding, they do make doggie pads for that.

I'm no expert but from what I've read on here and elsewhere you will want to wait at least a couple of months after she's finished this first heat before you have her fixed.

In addition to pads there are doggie panties you can get that cover up the 'entrance point'.

This might be a cheaper option- diapers. My girl went through a heat before I had her spayed. We tried doggie diapers as well as those doggie pads, but they did not stay on well. We got a bag of normal diapers and they were perfect. Just cut out a tail hole, and you are good to go- if there is a size that fits your dog, at least.

Also, if your dog is smaller, and won't keep a diaper/pads on, you can get a thrift store onesie, again cut out a tail hole, and then your pup can't remove the diaper or anything. Good luck!

Tilba only spotted a few days on, few days off for about 3 weeks. I didn't need to do anything than keep her in her crate or in a room with easy clean floor. Was lucky, I also read that she would look for a mate & have dogs around, didn't happen. She was good really. I had her spayed 4 mths later.
