    Default "heat" cycle

    Lucy got her 1st season today.....as my first baby girl I only know what I have read, so am looking for advise and tips off anyone who has been here.

    I'm reading that a season lasts atound 3weeks?
    1 wk coming......clear then cloudy yellowish sometimes smelly discharge...often missed by inexperienced parents....yup we missed that

    1 wk here....bleeding

    1 wk going....spotting and darker brownish discharge.

    Poor baby she is clingy and out of sorts this morning.
    What do I need to know, do, will supplements help? If so what? Will she be ok?

    She will be just fine. The week of bleeding comes first and is the worst, because they are messy and moody, just like women but from 9-15 days make sure she stays away from any males as this is their fertile time. Most females stop bleeding after the 7 days, but some will bleed or have a discharge a little longer.
    Congratulations Lucy! You are growing up!

    Just as bjfarms said, she will be fine. Just try to make her comfortable during her cycle, just like us she will be moody, crampy and out of sorts. I like to give my girls some extra special treats during their time, just so she doesn't think she being punished at all for bleeding on the floors/bedding! My girls prefer to stay in their crates when they are having their cycle. I don't even have to ask. Almost like they know they don't want to make a mess in mama's house.....

    Extra petting and loving during this time is good too. You never know what she is thinking about the whole thing, so some reassurance is good to enforce upon her. Something really fun to chew on to help settle the hormones would not hurt either.

    She does seem a little nonplussed but so far so good.
    Extra snuggles have been given today and a new toy and treats

    Hello,
    I have 3 females and 4 months ago I got another female.
    What is the youngest age your female has come into her first heat cycle?
    How long did they bleed?

    My other 3 girls are very much like clockwork. 2 are adults, one is only 9 months and then the "new" girl.
    She does not fit the "norm" compared to my others or what I have read, so I am starting to get concerned.

    I await your reply,
    Thanks,
    Good Day~

    I have been waiting for this. How old is Lucy now? Gypsy is 7 months and I am just waiting for it to begin. I have never been through it either so I am a bit nervous. I was also wondering if a neutered male will even really notice?

    I think a neutered male will notice cos my mums boy started acting weird even before Lucy visibly hit season. She's 13months old now only thing was after her first season around 6 weeks later she had another We panicked incase something bad had happened but the vet told us it is uncommon but notbunheard of for young girls to bleed again when their hormones go back down to normal levels after season, this takes around 6weeks. I always knew my girl was special. It's not unusual for girls to have a silent season though from whet some members here told me.

    Coco will return to her loving self when its all over....think how bad we feel when it's our time. Sweet Coco probably is feeling just the same. Extra cuddles and lots of love helps Lucy through xx
