    Default I need anyone's help that has bred any breed of dog!!

    So I have Bella here who gave birth about 8 weeks ago. How soon can she go into heat again? I think she might be bleeding.

    Also, forgot to ask the vet, but when can a dog be spayed after a birth?

    Thanks... I have never bred a dog before and never will, so this is all new to me.

    I think they can spay at any time, after the heat is over, and the internal swelling from the heat is gone.
    HRH was spayed at the same time as her cesarian in May, then we had her hernia's repaired in October.

    they usually dont come back into heat until around 6 months from last heat cycle or 6 months from the actual delivery date. Are you sure she isnt just still spotting? If the pups are still nursing I would wait until they are weaned and she has kinda bounced back from everything. If she is still bleeding in a few days I would call your vet to make sure she hasnt developed an infection.

    Since you rescued Bella do you have any idea when her pups were weaned? If it was recently her utuerus could still be shrinking, (causing some spotting) similar to when humans have babies it seems like we are bleeding forever afterwards. If you feel something is not right tho, you could get an exam done to be sure. I would think that if she was bleeding at all it would not be bright red in color by now regardless of when they were weaned but I cannot be sure.

    Well, she still had a pup in her kennel. so I"m thinking she was still nursing that 1 pup off and on. She wasn't bleeding when I got her. I think maybe just spotting. I noticed some blood drops on my kitchen floor last night, and I gave her another bath last night and when she shook, blood droplets hit the wall (ewww... I bleached it off). Now I noticed it dripping from her "girl parts" sometimes, not always. I'm going to call the vets first thing in the morning and ask about that, as well as schedule her for her soay. I think that needs done this week, if this isn't a heat.

    @goobersmom thanks for the advice. I really, truely appreciate it. I'm so bad with this "girl stuff". I leave it to the professionals. Unfortunately, there are alot of breeding being done from un-professionals, and Bella happened to come from one. Thanks again for the help.

    I too would say that she wouldn't come back into heat so soon ... hopefully it is just spotting and she hasn't developed an infection!

    Our pups mom had a uterine infection after birthing his litter and did this. She was spayed after pups were gone..and treated for infection as soon as they were weaned. Hope all is well.

    Thanks guys. I took her to the vet yesterday and the vet did a girlie exam on her. She doesn't think there is an infection by the way everything felt. They took blood from her to check her WBC's to see if there is actually an infection going on. I'll get the results today. Thanks for everyone's help!!

    Got the results... her WBC's are slightly elevated, she does NOT have a fever... so her spay will be on Monday. If she seems to be getting worse, I can call and they will spay her then. My poor girlie!
