Is my dogs estrus cycle normal?
Hi I have this mixed breed dog, her mother is a pure bred japanese spitz and father unknown, I already have her for 3 years but she only experienced her menstrual period twice. Its already been 18months since her last period. Is it normal? any advice? Thanks.
Answer: Dog estrus cycle
Roughly speaking she should come in to heat every 5 - 8 months from the age of 6 months. I think it's something to get checked out. I don't know toooo much about the heat cycle, so I can't comment if there are differences between the breeds. Although I highly doubt it. I would defiantly say its time for a trip to the vet. In particular if you wish to breed with her, as most reputable breeders will only breed the dams on their 3rd cycle.
