My dog will be getting spayed in a couple weeks ,when shes not in heat anymore, my question is this : she bled ALOT for about a week,now its light pink and very little,is she almost done ? And we do have a fenced in yard but there are 3 or so dogs at my window barking and such because shes in my room and shes trying to get to them to now so im guessing shes in the ready to breed stage right ? This is the first Large Dog i have had come into heat before and it has been crazy im ready to get her spayed ! :roll:


How the dogs got in idk but im almost positive they jumped the fence :mad:

Dogs will do anything to get to a bitch in heat. And i mean anything. Jump fences, dig, break down doors, climb, ECT.
I've always spayed my girls so idk a whole lot of first hand experience lol

Sounds like she is towards the end of the heat. Usually the clearish/pinksih stuff along with waving that tail, is a sign of her being ready. Not too sure, though.. Keep her seperated @ all times, seems like you doing that now... Be sure to wash those sheets too..lol

Thankfully I didn't have to deal with loose dogs in my city......Doesn't your city/town have a leash law?? Geez, I hope your yard is fenced in and even that won't stop a male from getting through it. Males have been known to tie a bitch through chain link fences. Glad you are getting her spayed! Hope all goes well :)

In order to know what stage she is in you would have to keep track of how regular her heats are and track the days from beginning to end to break down the stages. Not every bitch goes into heat regularly some have irregular heats so keeping a heat calendar would help you to identify with what stage she is in by tracking the days of bleeding ect.

General Information

Estrus ("heat") is the mating period of female animals. When estrus occurs, animals are said to be "in heat" or "in season." Dogs generally have their first estrous cycle at 6-12 months of age. Some females of the large breeds, however, may not have their first estrus until they are 12-24 months of age.

The complete cycle takes about 6 months, resulting in 2 estrous periods each year. Individual variation occurs, but a given female's pattern tends to be repeated regularly.

The estrous cycle can be divided into 4 stages:

1. Proestrus: This stage begins with the appearance of vaginal bleeding. It normally lasts from 4 to 9 days. Male dogs become very interested in the female; however, she will not yet mate with them.

2. Estrus: This is the stage in which the female will accept the male and conception can occur. The vaginal discharge is more yellowish than bloody. Ordinarily, the stage lasts for 4 to 13 days. Your female will stand still and hold her tail to the side when you touch her back or a male dog tries to mount.

3. and 4. Metestrus and anestrus: These 2 stages are periods of ovarian activity, but with no significant outward signs. False pregnancies frequently occur during metestrus.

Some Important Points

* You should consider your pet to be "in season" for 21 days: 7 days coming into heat, 7 days in heat, 7 days going out. Though conception is most likely during the middle 7 days, Mother Nature doesn't always follow the rules. Confine your pet for the entire 3 weeks.

* Remember that the above information is general. Not all females follow these patterns. Consult with the doctor if your pet does not seem typical. Sometimes, cycling problems can be an early warning of more serious problems, and the sooner they are dealt with, the better.

They can still spay your dog when she's in heat
usually they'll charge a lil more though.

Yeah you can do it while they are in heat but it's best you don't. Just do it when she comes out of heat like you planned.

make sure you really research that program. Some of those s/n programs are so packed and unethical that sometimes they don't sterilize utensils between procedures.
Just to make sure, I wouldn't want your pal to be hurt.

Thanks for your concern , the local aspca will be the ones over the event but the vet i have had for my pitbull when she got her shots and when my shih tzu got spayed will be the one doing the surgery and he does all the shelter ones so im sure it will be done right , but i will make sure of that ! Haha im a bit protective of my girl so even though they said i could go home and come back (an hour to get there) im just gonna stay with her :eek:
