Thread: what should I expect with my bullies first heat.

  1. #1

    Default what should I expect with my bullies first heat.

    I know EB usually go into heat pretty early. My dog is 11 months old. And whole bathing her i noticed she is very swollen. So I know what's coming. What I don't know is what to expect as far as her attitude changes and health changes. My dog has never been one to mess in her kennel and she has gone more one and two twice since I have noticed her being swollen. Is this normal or even common with going into her first heat? Please help!

    Hello! Had she had a discharge? they don't usually swell until they have been in heat for a week or so. The females I have had that were not spayed really didn't have a change of attitude.They did swell quite a bit, and had a bloody discharge. They did hump each other alot, while one of them was in heat. It seemed that they had to pee a little more than usual, no changes in their health.
    It didn't affect their pooping at all. But, of course all dogs-like people are different.Eleven months is not early,going in heat.
    If she IS in heat-do not let her outside alone. You would be surprised to see how male dogs can find a way to get to her!

    to EBN!!! I can tell you how our Bella would act, but I would imagine that each doggie is different. She would become very red & swollen down there and have a bloody discharge. Some days bright red, sometimes brown… you will need to get her pads and one of those diaper cover. I've seen some people actually use shorts, I just bought the washable ones at PetSmart. Heat cycles vary, but it seems like Bella would go on for several weeks… she also was very sleepy and bitchy at this time We would just leave her alone… LOL This is VERY important… do NOT allow her outside ALONE to potty or anything!!! Males will travel miles to find a bitch in heat, and that is something you DON'T want to deal with. She must be watched constantly outside. Sometimes her stools would be loose too...

    I'm sure it's on it's way… it could be awhile!

    Should have seen a discharge before the swelling. Sometimes they will have a light cycle sometimes and not have much of a discharge.
