Dog in heat
Hi there Cybervet

How long do dogs stay in heat? my Jack russel is currently in heat and my labradore keeps wanting to mate with her. We never got her spayed as we wanted her to mate with a friends dog, but they are unfortunately away this week. I dont know what to do!!
Can my labradore (he is 1 years old) impregnate her?

My aunt suggested i put a baby nappy on her for now? an i do that??

thanks in advance!

Hi Me

It is advisable that you separate the dogs until your JRT is out of season. Otherwise take her to the vet and get the season suppressed with the use of a hormone injection or get the bitch spayed.

I hope this helps
