    Our Sunny is 9 months and just started bleeding for her first heat. For the last week or two prior she kept humping all other females and licking them. We have a female who is still lactating...she keeps trying to nurse on her! Guess her hormones are going bonkers! Its actually kinda funny cuz she's bigger than the lactating momma who is 4 years old. Anyhow, we've never experienced vomiting from heats in any of ours. Definitely keep an eye on her. Our 4 year old's heat before last was almost 5 weeks of some spotting. Each female is different but will most likely bleed for at least 2 weeks, minimum. Watch those two extremely carefully for even the two weeks after bleeding has stopped!

    If you decide to use diapers, do so with caution. While they come in handy, if its not changed often and even if it is, you can run a higher risk of a UTI and tail pocket issues from being enclosed (heat and moisture)...increased bacteria breeding grounds :-)

    Females heat cycles usually are about 3 wks./21 days. approx the 9th day is when they start being the most fertile, and they will swell. But be careful when you think it's over-do not let her around full males. I once had a dog, who got bred after I though her heat was over. It would be good to give her a bath, when her cycle is over, also.She will smell better! Some females will ge very "emotional" when they are in heat!
