    Lea05 - why do you need the undies ?

    Unless you have a male - at home - with all his bits - I would not bother with the undies - just keep her within eyesight and on lead.

    With my girls - me - trained by my vet at the different times - they showed me how to work out when the girls would welcome the boys. It is not bombproof - but gave me some idea and time !

    Place your fingers at the end of the tail where it meets her body - either side does not matter - if the tail wags to either side - then she must be in total lockdown.

    As far as desexing her within 2 weeks after her bleeding stops - well - maybe your vet is not as good as I thought. She will need a lot more time - than just 2 weeks after the bleeding has stopped. Us girls know all about hormones - but with us it is every month - girl pups - not so.

    You now know her cycle - sort of - so I would be waiting longer to desex your girl than what your vet has suggested. You need her hormones to be settled - before you desex her.

    He said.........7-10 days bleeding then the bleeding will settle but she can get pregnant(she will back up to anything that will move his words were for 7day i think) and then the bleeding may start again for another 7-10 days. After this stops i have to wait another 2 weeks before op............5-6 weeks in total.
    Ok a silly question...............when will her next heat be due???????
    I put the undies on so she doesnt drop blood on the furniture and it stops her from licking herself inside out........I take them off when she is having a sleep and when we go outside(dog proof back yard)..........I think today she has had a pair on for about 2-3 hours today(she was on my bed and then on the lounge chewing a yummy bone).

    I am not sure what you meant about paying the extra $100 to the vet. Do you mean to desex her when in heat??
    That can be such a danger for the bitch with bleeding and complications.
    If the vet has suggested this the I would be searching for another vet...fast.

    The extra hormones as well as blood supply to the pelvic area should be a high risk no-no from desexing in heat - big risk of haemorrhage. It is THE worst time to operate, even safer to desex when pregnant (which is saying something!!).

    Don't be fooled into following advice on days and routines either. Just like human women are all different, with different period severity and duration, different ovulation times etc, so are bitches. You would take it with a grain of salt of a doctor told you all women menstruate for three days per month and become fertile exactly 10 days later, so do the same with your girl.

    One of mine has a heat every nine months. She will bleed for about 11 days, and then be standing (ready to mate). She will be receptive for anything from five days, to ten. Last time she indicated she was more than keen for nearly three weeks, after more than 10 days of bleeding beforehand.

    My other girl cycles every six months, will bleed for just over a week and then stand for up to two weeks as well. And becomes a weird monster for about a month beforehand, alternating between feral and trying to escape, to the sookiest monster ever. She is also prone to false pregnancy.

    Boys are easier.

    The vet did say it is very risky because they have to tie off blood vessels and it is very easy to miss one during this time.....it was never going to happen..........I tried normal baby nappies they just sit right(who wouldve thought lol)
    @Bernie....I cant see one bit of lace on them
    @Nattylou....boys are easier in the human babies as well
    Im just going to watch her and wait for the swelling to go down and then wait a few more weeks, just to be sure...
    she is very sooky.
