The bitch heat cycle - some factsA bitch may come into season (Heat or Oestrus) once to several times a year, depending on a particular breed and individual dog. Her first seasonal period, when she is capable of being fertilised by a male dog, may occur as early as six months of age in some breeds. The first sign of the female being in season is a thin red discharge, which may increase for about a week, changing to a thin yellowish stain, which lasts about another week. There is also a swelling of the vulva, the exterior portion of the female's reproductive tract. The soft, flabby vulva indicates her readiness to mate. Around this second week, ovulation occurs, a crucial period for her to be bred and this is the middle phase of the heat cycle. There are variations from bitch to bitch to how often they come into season. Also to how long the heat cycle and the period of ovulation lasts and the time elapsing between. The third week of the heat, the vulva swelling decreases and the oestrus period ceases for several months.
Bitch Box always recommends that your local vet always be the first point of contact in regards to the health and well being of your pet.
