    Question What's with the peeing?

    Okies, first hello, haven't been around for ages. got my precious british bulldog, Pippin she's adorable and the love of my life. Now she's about 9 months at the moment and went into season for the first time at the start of Jan. it's still going (groan) but in the past week she has starting peeing everywhere despite previously being house trained???

    She has steps going up to the bed we share and is quite happy to run up and down them when she needs to in order to use her pee pad corner when in the room during the day or night. But recently she's started peeing on the bed for no reason? She's found being on heat a bit distressing, doesn't really understand what's going on, I get humped nightly (lucky me) as she tries to scratch that itch, so I'm wondering if its from the stress of that? I've changed the bed sheets 4 times in the last week and when I did it last night she hopped up squatted and peed right in front of me!

    Any advise would be welcomed, i'm hoping its something that will stop when she finally finishes being on heat... don't want this to become a habit. TIA

    Hi ejburke32

    I'd be asking your breeder for some advice.

    There might be some sort of infection that is causing problems - vet could help with that...

    I'm not surprised she finds being on heat a bit distressing - me too. But I think I would not be letting her anywhere that it's not ok to pee while she is on heat. If only to prevent her leaving little bloody snail trails on everything as well.

    Heats - I thought usually last about 2 weeks. 6 weeks is a bit erm - something might not be quite right.

    You may also want to investigate putting her on the dog version of "the pill". But you need to find out if this affects growth or not.

    write a list and take it with her to the vet - is my suggestion - after contacting her breeder and asking some questions.

    Do NOT let her hump you. There's no itch to scratch she's hormonal and she's growing up into an adult bitch. After 6 weeks she's probably not still in heat I would go get her a thorough health test she probably has an infection. If she doesnt she may need a hormone injection to pull her out.

    I have had several bitches go through their first heats and there was never any problem, no peeing, no humping, in fact there wasnt much difference at all. The problem started for one where near the end of the heat she came down with pyometra. That was darn scary.

    hi guys, thanks for the advice and support. I'm not so worried about the bleeding I talked to her breeder and she said it was normal for them to bleed up to 21 days. Swelling in her nether regions is starting to go down and bleeding seems to have stopped in the last couple of days so hoping that part is now over. Just to clarify, I'm not letting her have her wicked way with me, I'm trying to teach her that no means no LOL. Anyway going to try to get her into the vet in the next couple of days to make sure it's not anything serious.

    Also I've got her booked in to get fixed at the start of April.

    I had her wearing pants while she was on heat to prevent the blood snail trails, so hilarious watching her run around the house in a little black G-string!

    Scratching an itch was just meant as a humourous analogy

    I knew what you meant and I meant too there is no inherent need for anything for her
