Dog in heat.

Species: Dog
Breed: mini pincher
Age: 6-12 months
My female min pin seams to be in heat for last week. she has a little blood around her virgina and it seems swollen, and she has been acting different. how long will she stay in heat. this is the first female dog I have had.


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

A female dog is generally in heat for about 3 weeks. The first week will have the most bleeding. She will be the most fertile at about day 10-14 of her heat, but could potentially get pregnant at any point in her heat.
