How do you know when a dog is in heat if it is a silent one? Any other signs? Also do they always bleed when they are in? Any other signs of heat...I think she may be in, but I need to have her fixed, I can after her heat right?
My cat was spayed during her heat cycle and from what my vet says, the only problem is that it will cost you a little bit more. There is not much more risk to your animal. I am sorry I do not know much about the silent heat.
My female had what I guess you could call a silent heat she never did bleed. The vet they do not have to bleed to have a heat it is just most do. I saw that she was starting to swell and the male was getting interested in her. She swoll more and more and about 9 days after the swelling started she was ready to breed. You can get her spayed while she is in heat I used to work for a vet and he fixed them all the time in heat. The only thing is that it is more expensive than a regular spay since all the reproductive organs are swollen inside and it makes the surgery longer and a litter harder. Good luck you can email me if you have any other questions. APreciousPersian@cs.com
