    Default First Heat Cycle

    Our sweet Sassy is having her first heat. She seems miserable and it breaks my heart. She keeps throwing up foam, I'm guessing she has cramps and this is the cause?
    She gets to wear big girl panties and isn't to happy about it. Lots of extra love and attention makes her feel a little better. How long does this last? Hopefully it's over soon!

    When we got Ruthie from rescue they said she was spade...she wasn't. Her cycle went about 3 weeks. I never had a dog go through heat so I was shocked at that. I hated it. Poor baby...I hope she feels better soon, lots of lovins always helps!

    Bella's cycles would last about 3 weeks, and yes they are miserable!!! She was really sleepy too, but I don't remember any vomiting... Good Luck!!!

    Our previous dog was not spayed - her heats lasted a couple of weeks... several times a year - messy I never noticed it bothered her though...maybe the first ones do. We once had a neighborhood dog rip off our screen door while our dog was in heat trying to get to her! We just got our Mia spayed at 5 months cause I didn't want to have to go through that again. Are you planning on breeding her? Hope she feels better soon

    3 weeks for the cycle, usually they throw up foam if they are overheated or ate something they shouldn't have, don't remember foam from heat cycle. Although there are many changes with the hormones , I don't think it would be throwing up foam, her stomach could be upset. If she is throwing up for 24 hours or everyday, she should see her vet, foam is usually a sign of hunger, empty tummy

    I agree with @Sherry, I have never had one throw up foam. They usually do this if they are hot and panting too much. The heat cycle will last about 3 to 4 weeks.

    Poor girl. Emma's lasted about 3 weeks. She wasn't miserable but she did become extra lovey and quite clingy. Oh and and she kept trying to hump my two males.

    sarah had heat cycles till she was 5 and she got spayed and she never threw up. was tired and miserable and clingy for 3 weeks yes. i gave her one baby aspirin to help her with the pain and hurting and it seemed to help her. thats baby aspirin not regular aspirin. i gave her one in the am and one in the pm but only if needed. perhaps her tummy is empty hence the throwing up.

    My princess is going through her first heat cycle too, she doesnt want to do much except stay in her crate and sleep it off, except when she eating. I dont put diapers on her but should I? lolz i have been basically wiping down her crate because and washing it down over and over lolz. But i am starting to think daiper maybe a good alternative.
