    Default Smell from my bitch.

    I suspect our wee dog is in heat again but the odd smell that goes with it is lingering this time.
    How long should a season last?

    I've given her a shower and its still there so it must be her glands.

    usually it lasts about a month.

    the smell is very hard to cover,

    you can by some pants from vets with bleeding pads slotted in, or get an old pair of pants cut a tail hole and whip them on, covers the smell a good bit.

    Bitches are usually on heat for about 3 weeks, first week is coming on, second week is the most receptive and third is going off, they can get pregnant in all the weeks.

    Thanks you two.

    The smell is horrendous ,it hits you as soon as you go into the living room.Have got the oil burner on continuously,its clinging to the carpet no matter what shake @vac I put down.
    Even sitting up for a cuddle is a "smell tolerance" test.

    Somehow it seems worse this time.

    Poor dogs in the "dog house" and she hasnt done anything wrong.

    Think I'll just have to get her done.

    Default "smell from my bitch"

    Just a thought ......... if the smell from your bitch is noticeably different and stronger this time it could be a sign that she has pyometra (womb infection). This usually occurs 1-2 months after a season and can either be an open pyometra (leaking pus) or a closed one which is usually more dangerous. If she were mine I would get her checked out by your vet to be on the safe side.

    It may also be her anal glands. A trip to the vet is a good idea.

    Its lasting too long and now she's molting like she did the lastime she had a throat infection.
    Apparently dogs shed hair when stressed.
    Will just have to take her for a check up.Everything else is in working order, like eating,drinking,chasing cats,barking at postmen etc.

    It does sound like there may be an infection or, as WickWitch said, her anal glands may be the problem.
    Glad she is lively and eating okay so obviously nothing serious.

    Hope you get it sorted out soon.

    Default Bitch

    This is Megan sporting her sporty drawers as I used to call them, as Netttie has already pointed out a pyometra is something to be concerned about.

    Megan started to get discharge and was drinking and weeing a lot more than normal and I put it down to old age and a visit to the vet confirmed a pyometra.

    We were advised an hysterectomy while removing the pyometra would be advisable as she is nearly ten now, and this proved to be the case as she has taken a new lease of life since the operation

    A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

    Our GSD smelled so bad when she was in season i took her to the vet. Good job i did, poor girl had an infection. She was spayed after a course of antibiotics and thankfully is now fine. If the smell is worse than usual it might be worth a trip to the vet !

    Probably got the start of that womb infection so have been given antibiotics and have her booked in to get done next Tuesday.

    The vet recommends all his clients bitches are done if they dont intend to breed them as this type of infection can totaly destroy the uterus thus killing the dog.

    Default "smell from my bitch"

    I am so pleased you were able to get your little dog in to the vet so quickly. She will be so much better once the infection is cleared and she has been speyed. I agree entirely with your vet, when I was breeding my Labradors I would always have them speyed after they had a couple of litters as I was so afraid of them getting a pyometra which can be fatal if left undiscovered.
    I am sure the operation will be a total success and she will be back to normal soon after. Best wishes, Nettie

    I am so glad that Dileas is okay and that she will be getting spayed so quickly.

    You won't need to worry about pyometra again.

    I am totally pro neutering/spaying as a puppy since one of my dogs developed prostatitis when he was about 11 years old (the Vet had told us not to bother getting him neutered) and was very ill after the op due to his age.

    Well todays the big day and as usual she never eat her dinner staight away when we put it down lastnight.
    By bedtime it was still untouched so OH had to lift it.Poor wee Dileas was scrounching this morning so has gone for her op well and truely empty.

    She was so reluctant to go into the vets cage and started to bark her head off as soon as I reached their front door. I proceeded to goto the bank and on the way back could still hear her from outside the shop.

    I feel a mega huff coming on when I pick her up at 2pm.

    Hi Netti thankfully everything went well and she's still speaking to me.

    Poor wee thing wont stop whining,she's not in pain as such as she's been given a 24hrs injection for it,so I suppose its just "trauma".
