    Default Dog in heat??

    I have a 6 month of BLF and today I noticed a bit of bloody mucus discharge after she urinated. Could this be a sign of her going into her 1st heat cycle...Thanks!

    Mucous doesnt usually mean a heat, but blood can. She is a bit young- though she 'can' be.... Watch her - if the blood continues, its probably good bet shes in heat- if the mucous continues though,and /or she is urinating more frequently (though, that too, can be when she is in heat-marking/etc..). then she could have a urinary infection. When in doubt, have a vet check her.

    Ditto on what Billie said. My girls don't usually come in heat until ~14 months, had one as late as 22 months for the first time. I'd watch for signs of both heat and UTI and vet visit if you think the latter. You "should" see noticeable swelling in the next couple of days if she's going in heat.
