Female heat cycle?

4 posts in this topic

I have a 15 month old female brittany and as far as I know she has not had a heat cycle yet. Some tidbits here: my dog spends the day in the outside kennel and she comes in and spends the night in the house, she did have a navel hernia repaired "hope this has nothing to do with this" and she is always humping our spayed 5 year old GSP. I know the 1st heat can be lite but I haven't seem it yet. Shouldn't a female dog usually have the 1st heat cycle from 6-12 months? Thanks Rick

Hi Rick,

A female should come into heat around 10 - 14 months and then every 6 months give or take a little. I had one come into heat at 8 months when she was with another female who was in heat. I have also had a female who never did come into heat. After we found her a new home, she came into heat for the first time at 3 years of age.

The dogs first heat cycle is usually pretty light and some females will kept them selfs licked clean so you will not notice the discharge. However her backend will still swell up to at least twice the size of normal and that you should notice.

So 15 months is a little late, but not unheard of.

Thanks for the reply Tom, I am just becoming abit concerned that this female has not had a heat cycle yet "that I have seen", and like I said my dogs come into the house in the evening for all night and than go back out in the kennel for the day. I will wait another month or so and than take her to the vet for an opinion.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
