    Default So Your Dogs on Heat..

    Is there anything you do different when ur doggie is in the red.

    Diet, exercise etc

    Ruby started bleeding tonight for the second season. Apparently this one is usually worse then the first regarding bleeding and scent.

    Should I be doing anything differently this time?

    She is not keen on having to lay on old towels and not being able to walk all over the house.

    A nappy?

    I'm sure if I had an entire bitch, I'd put her on the pill. I hate the mess.

    You might want to up the iron content - ie more red meat - for blood production given she's losing a little bit.

    Exercise - no off lead dog parks or places where there are lots of off lead dogs. I can't believe some people will let a bitch on heat loose in a dog park but it happens. I'd still try to make sure she got some exercise.

    For more details consider asking your dog's breeder or your favourite vet.

    Not interested in desexing? Hang on, deep dark recesses of brain are pinging re showing or breeding from?
    Have seen nappy kind of things in petbarn.
    Make sure she is secure. Have heard of males going through windows and over buildings at a single bound (that may be a slight exaggeration, lol)

    When my girl is on heat she's hungrier so I feed her extra when she seems really hungry. I don't take her outside the property at all because it's too risky if there are any entire males around. I give her space, ie she can sometimes be a little bit grumpy or food possessive when on heat so I stay away from her when she has a bone and I make sure my other dog doesn't go near her while she's eating. I put sheets or towels on the furniture she sits on so she can be as comfortable and warm as possible while she's on heat.

    And of course, lots of cuddles because she gets super cuddly at this time.

    Hello Bulldog, Nappies are great! I had purchased some different types from pet shops, but some had trouble staying on. I then found some very simple and cheap ones on ebay (around $6.00), that have a pull string waist and are brilliant. Pet shops charge a small fortune for the pads that fit these nappies but if you just buy human panty liners, cut them in half..work perfectly at a fraction of the cost. Good luck!

    You need bitches britches. You can buy them from pet stores, or if you are clever, you can make them yourself.
