    DefaultGuess what happened when we were away???

    We left last saturday morning am, saturday pm MIL calls to inform us that Lizzie is on heat!!! I was a upset to say the least... poor girl.. anyway we are back now (had a lovely holiday, heatwave here..England). Looking for a bit of advice really, MIL says that last monday she peed in the house twice!! could this have something to do with being on heat? any other advice would be much appreciated as this is all so new to us, thanks.. also just wanted to add that I missed checking in everyday..

    I was wondering the same thing. How is she doing? Are you sure she is in heat?

    If she is less than 6 months old it is probably a UTI or similar infection....

    If she is in fact in heat her vulva should be swollen. Are you planning on spaying her? It would be a good time after her heat is over. Also do not leave her outside unattended, even for a second and be careful of male dogs when you walk her. Years ago I was taking care of my mother's two mini poodles. She did not let me know they were in heat. I was walking them in the center of Philadelphia when a Weimer without a collar came out of nowhere. If it hadn't been for a man who took his belt off and dragged the dog away my 2 would have been in trouble.

    Yep, her vulva should be very swollen, and prepare for 1-2 weeks of bleeding...but the worst time is when she stops bleeding, as that is when she is the most fertile. When her vulva swelling finally goes down, that is when you are pretty much OK again. Hopefully Lizzie will wear the doggy diapers with fortitude and you will be OK...Ivy kept tearing hers off (plus she has no tail) and it was not so much fun!
