    Default Females going into heat

    I was wondering how old females are when they go into heat and what to be ready for? My Lola the last week has been backing up her butt anytime I go near her back side and will push it right up against whatever is touching her. She also is licking there a lot and she never has done that and now its all the time. She is only 5 months so Im not sure what to think because she is a little young to be in heat. I am getting her fixed in January but her Vet wants to wait tell she is around 8 months. I want to catch it before she goes into heat! thanks!

    Have you checked her for a tail pocket? Maybe she has an itch she can't get to?

    First heat is usually around 6-9 months, but it can vary immensely. I cannot believe your baby girl is almost a young lady!!

    No tail pocket and not swelling of her girl part so I dont know why she is paying attention to much to that part! So when she does go into heat what do I need to know? How bad will it be? And will she have to wear a diaper?

    I just experienced this with Amber. She was nine months old and went into heat; what a mess. She wouldn't keep the diaper on, destroyed every one we put on her except for at night. She got diarrhea one night in the diaper and we were outside hosing her off from tip to tail, not a good night for any of us. She lives on the furniture for the most part so that was difficult figuring out how to keep my livingroom set from being soiled. Lots of bankets, shower mats and scrubbing to keep up with the furniture and I called and made the first available appointment to get her spayed, that happened last Friday on 26 Oct 12. lol; she was in good spirits through it all but it was a mess. I finally had to make a pen in the hallway with doggie gates to keep her from messing up the house while I was working and I still had to clean the walls daily. I hope you have better luck than I did with Amber on her first and last heat cycle. Once was enough for me, no more of that stuff. Good luck.

    the picture below is the diaper we use, I got a medium but it was a good but very snug fit ... I added a panty liner inside just to try and control the mess. I got them at Petco and they worked really well and stayed on! The cycle lasts 3 weeks with 3 varied stages, a week coming in a week in full heat and a week going out ... it is messy but with a good diaper and some female products it can be controlled. My first female I had spayed at 6 months because I didn't want her to come into season at all and it worked out good for her.

    my female is 3 years old I never had her fixed I go through it every 6 months. Your going to have to get a diaper that is washable an some pads without wings for the dollar store or grocery store there cheaper than petco or petsmart an get some baby or doggie aspirin she will have cramps an if she doesn't have a tail your gonna have to get suspenders to keep them on or if she doesn't have a tail you could always use baby diapers that might work better an then you don't need pads I would put blankets on the couch if you let her up. If you need anything else or what to know anything just ask it last for a month after she's done bleeding she will have clear liquid for a week an that's when your gonna have to keep the males away the first 3 weeks she wont be ready she won't let them do it but the last week she will be ready so if you don't want puppies keep the males away

    I dont want puppies! We live in an apartment now so she is on a leash all the time so no males will be around her but when she goes potty and even then its not very likely. I will have to look at those diapers when I go to petco and see what they have. I hope january comes soon and she can hold off! I am so nervous about this can i just board her the whole week of heat? lol
