Years ago, almost all dogs who were not going to be bred were spayed or neutered at an early age. For that reason, it was only breeders that had to deal with heat cycles and puppy panties. However, that has changed in recent years as many studies have proven that it may be better to allow your dog to fully mature before having her spayed. As a result we are frequently asked how to handle a dog's first heat. Here are some considerations and products to help you survive your girls first heat.

I was wondering the same thing. My Cavalier King is 16 mos but we only have had her a month. I had no idea about any of this and do plan on getting her fixed. I’m glad I read it’s becoming known that it is better to wait but when is the perfect time? She has begun to bleed in the last couple days and literally had all of the signs listed above. This dog is my 2nd child and only want the best for her. Will it be another 6 mos or so before the next cycle? She will have a vet visit soon. Thank you for all of your knowledge!

Our 16 month female still has an enlarged vulva and she licks it all the time time and it smells. She is happy enough and has started eating again but is very fussy.
