Puppy in Heat


I have never had a female dog before, so this part is all new to me. My puppy, Oakley, has been treted for Giardia for the last 2 1/2 months and she can't seem to get rid of it. Therefore, the vet will not spay her. The breeder told me that her mother came into her first heat at 7 1/2 months. I am expecting Oakley to do about the same. She is already 6 1/2 months old. I am not familiar with what happens when a dog is in heat. I know that sounds dumb. I know she will have a cycle, and bleed. Is it different for every dog? If she doesn't get Giardia cleared up before her first cycle, what can I expect?

I would really appreciate any advice.

Thank yoy


Take Care, Moe

Wow Moe-that's awful about Oakley having Giardia for soo long.
I can't offer too much advise about what to expect, but I can say that Pixie was spayed just shy of 7 months and before she came into season. Maybe some of the breeders can chime in. Hopefully the Giardia will go away soon and she can be spayed before it happens.
