    Default Question

    Hi
    Ruby's been in season for the past week now ( first heat cycle) anyway I noticed this morning that she'd wee'd in her bed sometime through the night this is really unusual for her there was abit of urnie on the crate bottom that looks quite cloudy & this morning she's slightly off her food she ate her breakfast but at lunch time she wasn't to intressed she basicly sniffed it and walked away in the end I hand feed her lunch to her just to try get some down her. is all this usual for bitches in heat or should I be concerned and make a vet appointment? Thanks

    I would certainly make an appointment. @agingermom had a similar experience and it turned out Bertha was not in heat, but had a UTI, but it happened at the time she was expecting her heat cycle.

    Oh thanks bullmama I will call the vet first thing and have them check her out, I think she's defiantly in heat cause all her lady area is very swollen but it's just not like her to wee in her bed and usually if we put a bit of something on her kibble she will eat it but even with a bit of something on her kibble she wasn't intressed

    Hi @rubymummy! Bertha appeared to be in heat as well, swollen vulva, Arnold extremely interested, etc. However, once she became in incontinent of urine, extremely unlike her as well, I knew something was wrong. The bad news was that I waited too long to notice and she ended up getting a polyp on her bladder from the irritation of the UTI. Her heat came right after!! It was a complete nightmare! Please let us know what your vet says!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Thanks @agingermom hope bertha's okay will she have to have the polyp removed? Ruby's still really playful and being her usual cheeky self - running off with the clothes out of the washer & drier as I'm trying to load them - but il defiantly give my vet a call first thing and have them check her out just be on the safe side as the urinating in her bed does concern me cause it's so unusual for her

    Glad you took her in! Is she eating again yet? Poor girl, not fun to have both at the same time. Hope she's feeling better soon.

    She picked at her breakfast this morning and same again with her lunch at tea time she started on her tea then left it then went back about ten minutes later to finish it off I mentioned this to the vet and she checked her mouth for sores/bad tooth but couldn't see anything she felt it's probably a mixture of the uti and heat that's making her feel abit off poor girl
