    Default Worried about my pug

    I have a 6 months old black pug girl. I suspect she's coming into heat. I do not want to breed with her, but unfortunately I think it might be to late as I suspect my male pug might have "beaten me to the punch". Must I just wait and see or is there some way I can find out now? She's just a baby herself!

    I would bring her to the vets for a spay and also bring your male for a neuter at the same time. If nothing else but for health reason to eliminate the chance of testicular cancer.

    Thanks. I'll take them both to the vet tomorrow. My only concern was if she might already be pregnant, I'd have nightmares forever if I "killed" her babies. I don't think it's possible though, so I'll just make extra sure with the vet and keep them apart tonight.

    If she is only just coming into heat, it is very unlikely that she is pregnant.. they bleed for a week or so before they have a straw colored discharge.. the straw discharge period is when they are fertile.

    However.. IF she is pregnant, you definitely want that litter aborted. She is only 6 months old and in no way going to be a responsible mother. Her pups would likely die from neglect if she did not kill them herself.

    Keep in mind that when a female goes into heat for the first time, her nipples become more prominent. If that is what you are basing your concern on, you are likely very safe.. she's just becoming (hormonally) an adult.

    Best of luck to you!

    Oh no, that is so sad, she is only 6 months old.

    You will still have time to go to the vet before the puppies grow anymore if she is pregnant and stop it from happening.

    Im so glad you're taking them to the vet tomorrow :) best of luck.

    Thank you for spaying your girl immediately and neutering your boy.

    Yes, my girl went into heat and the vet said if she got out without us or we caught her with a male dog for what ever reason that she would do an emergency spay and stop the pregnancy. The vet said that a pug that young is too small to have a litter and that often times it results in still born pups and or c-sections if they get knocked up that early.
    Good luck!

    Some females go into a silent heat. A male would know it..but a human would not...

    I'm glad that you're taking them to the vet to be taken care of!
