Hey all, so due to leg surgeries we have not been able to get Cadbury spayed yet. We are planning on doing it in May after her last set of xrays come back and we know the plan for the one still affected leg.
HOWEVER, she has just come into heat this week, swollen vulva, acting weird, blood spots.....I tried the baby diaper method but it won't stay on, does anyone know if the doggie diapers stay on any better or do they have any other ideas so there isn't drops of blood all over my floor!!!!!!!!!!
Also, any other advice about a dog's first heat that I should know about?? This is a first for me. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!!
I don't know that I can be of much help, but I did purchase a pair of the doggie diapers for when Daisy goes into heat. They are of a jean material so they are tough, and you can reuse them if need be. I haven't fully used them yet, but when I tried them on her they seem to stay pretty well- even when she was playing rough. I think the velcro they use for the doggie diapers is a bit more giving than the adhesive they use for baby diapers.
I bought the pair of diapers and then the pads that go inside at Petsmart for about a total of $30.
Hope that helps and good luck,
Piper, Faith, Mocha & Pink

I bought the same thing as LabLady101, but I've also heard that you can use boys underwear turned backward (use the fly for the tail).*
No advice on the heat and diapers, but I was just wondering about Cadbury the other day. How are her legs? Were you able to get more growth out of them?
I did use those from 4Paws on Bear about a month ago when she was in heat, they are perfect. Just put a regular pad for women on it.
Ahh! be careful to take them out when she goes out, my husbamd has to wash it when she went out and wet herself... :-\ He prays he is the perfect father when I am not around ???

These is a product called Seasonals, they work great! They are a soft cotton material and have 2 velcro closures at the top. I just use a regular womans pad on the inside.

That's a really great idea.

Jacks And Labs -- Gosh Piper is adorable. Now, how did you manage to keep those undies on her?
Thanks! She actually loves to wear things...didn't bother with the panties at all and stood, happily wagging every time I put them on. She's quite a hamOriginally Posted by ThatsMyGirl
