    I really dont know exactlly when does it start, but Mocha was schedule to get spayed and (at 7 months) and she got her first heat cycleShe also got so very sick(almost died on me) because the amount of fluid retention in her uterus. The vet thought for sure it was pyometra.she was at the Vets for 2 days hooked to IVs,they did blood chemistry diagnostics,cbc,pancreatitis tests and so on. I could have prevented all this had I scheduled her surgery sooner. I highly recomend that you get her spayed as soon as posible. it is not worth the risk of something happenning to your baby.It costed us so much money when this happend to Mocha and I could have prevented it with only 250.

    It can start as early as 6 months! Or even later. It's just like a human female. No real age..just approximates.

    It really does vary per dog. Molly had her first heat at 8 months. Jesse was almost a year. Yuna was a year and a month! It really can range from 6 months and up. If you plan on getting her spayed, the sooner the better.

    On the 'average' I would say the first heat comes around 9 months, and comes every 6 mos.

    Just like in humans, it can vary from age 10 to even in your 20's! (as libra926 already stated).

    Maggie came into heat at about 9 months, and then again a year later. She has now been spayed .. it was something we always intended to do but various health problems we had with her, just kept it being delayed more than I would have liked.

    If you don't intend to breed Sparkles, then please get her spayed as soon as you can.
