Lily is almost 8 mo, is 2nd week of in heat? I'm not familiar with this bc haven't had a dog in 13 yrs. last week she was spotting a little then her female parts are swollen but not as much this week. She has seemed a little more tired but today she is lying around and isnt usually perky self , eating grass and vomiting (which isn't that unusual for her) but hasn't eaten her food today or any treats but will drink water. I called vet and said they can all just act diff and call back tom if not eating, peeing or worse. I'm not sure if she has peed today? I'm not sure what's normal or not. Any advice please.

They definitely can act a little "off" when they are in heat, and not wanting to eat here and there is pretty common. She should definitely be drinking and peeing, though. If she's not doing those, I'd have the vet give her a look, just to make sure there isn't something else going on.

just remember that when they act perkier, and are not bleeding is when they are MOST fertile and receptive to mating. So make SURE she is away from all boys for at least 21 days from the first day of bleeding.

Thanks. Yes she finally ate some treats and food today. We went for a walk and she did fine and even peed some today just not her usual self. And will def keep her away from any male dogs for a month. We are not around any but will make sure!!
