Thread: 13 month old female bulldog still has not had first heat

    Default 13 month old female bulldog still has not had first heat

    I was wondering if this is a common thing in bulldogs she is my first female. I talked to her vet and he said its common the bigger the dog the longer it can take. He doesn't specifically specialize in bulldogs though. I was just wondering if I could hear about anyones past experiences with this.

    She may have had what my vet explained to me as a "silent heat". He says sometimes the first heat is so little, you don't even notice it. I would not be concerned with it. My Yuna is having what I thought was her first heat at a year and a month old, and he told me that was not likely, and that I missed the 'silent' heat because she did not bleed much or not at all. I don't know if this is the case, but he sounded very confident about it.

    I also moved this topic to "Your Bulldogs Health" so others can find it easily in the future.

    Yes, I was going to say the same thing...a lot of English Bullies go through a silent heat...my grandmother used to breed bullies and it actually happens more then you think...you just don't realize they are in heat, because they bleed very little and you miss it.

    Wish Lucy was going through a silent heat....but No! in typical Lucy style she has to shout it from the rooftops
    But nearly over now thankfully my pretty baby girl is slowly coming ack to me...she's more snuggly today

    Having said that I also have heard that silent heats are very common in Bullies so try not to worry too much

    My Mello just came out of heat..."a silent heat" the only way I knew she was in heat is that she was a little swollen and my males were right there all the time.... but if you don't have a male in the house it can go by without notice.... There was no bleeding.

    thanks for your help everyone I don't know if she has had a silent heat or not. I have checked her pretty regularly since she was about 6 months old and haven't noticed anything. I don't have a male dog so there is no way to tell that way.
