I think my dog might be having a silent heat. There is what looks like dried out blood in her vulva. But I never actually saw blood drip anywhere. Here are some information on her:
Age: 9 months
Food Brand: Pro Plan but slowly changing to Innova
Had all shots: yes
Tomorrow I am taking her to the vet, and I will also talk to the vet about spaying her. I know I should have already but my dad just lost his job about five months ago and we have been short on money.
if you are seeing any signs of bleeding, then it is not a silent heat. Some dogs don't have a heavy bleed time. she may spot for a few days and she may not. but if you noticed what appears to be dried blood near/around her vulva, then most likely she is in heat and may have been for a few days. their cycle usually runs around 3 weeks with starting at day 10 thru 15 being her most vulnerable to becoming pregnant. do not let her out of your sight. males can smell a female in season 2 miles or so. expect many boys to come around your neighborhood. I'll give you a link when I find it about maybe some financial help to get her spayed. also suebgone has some excellent sites that may be able to help you get her fixed at a reduced rate. Check your humane society as they will sometimes be able to have her spayed at a very reduced cost. just please be very careful over the next few weeks. Trust me I know what it is like to have to pinch pennies. so maybe these links will help. be back in a minute with those links. see that didn't take long. here is the link.http://www.seefido.com:/dog-discussion-forum/viewtopic.php?t=1855 like I said at the midway of this post, suebgone has loads of assistance programs that maybe of assistance for you.
Thankyou Kim for your help.
Im keeping a really close eye on her (expect when Im in school, but she stays here inside my house when Im not home). Im just worried that on the first floor of my house (I live on the second) lives a cocker spaniel, and Im pretty sure its a male. But Im not even taking her to the backyard anyone because thats where the spaniel usually stays.
I will talk to her vet to see how much he will charge to get her spayed. If its too much then I will take your advice and contact my local humane society.
belbaby, like i said sue has other info that will help pay the vet bills for neutering/spaying at at much reduced cost. I wish I could find that link to see if your area have vets willingly to take care of the spaying at a much reduced cost. I'll continue searching for that site. I know it is based on zipcodes wwhether or not their are vets willing to assist. just also let you know most vets I know charge extra to spayed if she is in heatl much more.
viewtopic.php?t=2459&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= might be the one sue always recommends but don't quote me on that.
here are the others.

I took Belinha to the vet today, and I told him I thought that she might be in heat. He checked her private area and said no. He said that she isnt in heat, he said that when she gets into heat there will be a lot of blood coming out ( which isnt belinha's case ). So Im happy that she isnt in heat yet.
