    cyclopse Our female puppy is going into heat...

    Hello everyone. My family has a female Chihuahua pup that is 9 months old and she started to go into her first heat about three days ago.
    Do any of you that have female dogs do anything regarding the discharge (like keeping the dog outside)? She has gotten the carpet and her bed pillow stained…

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Please do not suggest spaying her. Many people I have asked regarding this issue simply and rudely say to spay her, but that kind of action would not be under my control.

    i have a 7 year old siberian husky. when she goes through that period, i just clean up after her, which is kind of a pain since it lasts for 3 weeks. here's what i do to keep the carpet clean. wipe the area with hydrogen peroxide then once the stain is gone, wash the material with warm soap + water.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Does the discharge last the entire three weeks? Several sources that I have read state that the amount reduces as the three weeks progress, ending up with little to none by the time the third week comes around.

    I had a female chow and when she would go into heat, I would take a huggies pull up and cut a hole for her tail. It worked great. I'm sure most dogs would just chew it off, but it worked for her.

    3 weeks sounds about right. i dont know if it varies for dog breeds though.
    my dog gets all weird and moody when she's in heat. she'd always carry her stuffed animal with her and squeak it like 20x or she'd sit outside in the backyard for hours, waiting for a male dog.

    They actually make a belt and sanitary pad for female dogs. You can find that at most pet shops.

    BTW...why can't she spayed? Your parents won't do it?

    Like Ozzy suggested, I have heard of many families using diapers and have not heard about they chewing it off.

    Or you could just get her "knocked up" next time!

    They think its cruel and that it will change her personality…

    I'll try the diaper method... It sounds like it'll work.
