Thread: Oh Dear

  1. #1

    Default Oh Dear

    Please don't have a go at me about this but there was no possible way I could ahve got it done earlier because I don't drive and there wasn't an available appointment coinciding with when my partner could drive our dog. So we had her booked in for Monday morning but now DP has noticed a few drops of blood in the garage so it's obvious we are too late. Please again don't have a go at me I just want help. What should we do now and what should we expect?

    keep her away from other dogs...do not leave her out of your sight! A mating doesn't take long! Be reponsible and do the right thing for her. Do not put her in a position where she can become pregnant.

    Can dogs break into my house? Like we have a 6 foot colorbond fence to get through then a glass sliding door to our house.

    Hi Pug Life.

    My first bit of advice would be to call your vet tomorrow morning and explain what has happened. A lot of vets won't de-sex a bitch who is already in season, but some will (for a higher fee though usually.) Talk to your vet about it first.

    If de-sexing cannot be done and you must wait till she goes out of season again, then yeah, you are going to have to do everything you can to ensure no dog can get into your yard and get to her!

    Look, a dog can get to a bkitch in heat through ruddy anything if he has a mind to.

    Having said that, a lot of ppl everywhere manage to successfully get through a bitch's being in season time and time again with no mishap.

    It's all about how well you prepare your place, yard etc, and how vigilant you are with keeping an eye on her. If you must go out, you must have somewhere safe that you can lock her up where no other dog can get into.

    Nope, call them on Monday. What sort of attitude/discussion have you got from your vet so far? meaning, has he mentioned whether he will or won't perform de-sexing whilst in season? To my understanding most won't these days, but it can't hurt to discuss this with him/her.

    How long is this going to last 3 weeks? We are usually home but will dogs try and break in while we are all in the house I'm so scared.

    yes...dogs can jump 6 foot fences and remember...dogs can smell her miles away. I have heard of large dogs going through plated glass doors to get to a bitch in heat. If you take her for walk...don't do it right outside your house. Go further away so you don't leave a trail of goody smells for the dogs right to your front door.

    When Ruby went into heat...she wasn't allowed in the yard by herself...she was supervised all the time. You need to do this, because if a male dog enters and matings start and they are "connected"...you should NOT pull them apart...you can damage the dogs penis due to the swelling happening to stay "connected".

    They said they will have a look and may be able to.
