My poor pet is experiencing her first heat. I don’t remember my askal having as difficult a time and it’s ben so long since I’ve had a female dog that I had to do some research to ensure we get through this phase of doggy life as comfortably as possible for both her and us.
Some facts about a dog’s heat:
- it is a cycle
- it happens twice a year
- usually lasts three weeks
- blood – 7 to 10 days; couple of days after the latter fluids
- pinkish/tan / lighter colored fluid – 5 to 7 days
