Dogs That Have Not Been Spayed Are At Risk Of A Heat Cycle (Doglifenews

Menopause occurs in women in middle age. Once a woman has not had a period for a year, they are going through menopause. After menopopause, a woman is not able to conceive naturally. Women who have menopausal menoposis do not get their periods. A heat cycle is a period in a dog that lasts between 6 to 13 months. A dog usually bleeds for about 10 days. Some dogs don't have visible blood at all. They can bleed for up to 27 days. Spaying a dog removes its reproductive organs. This includes the ovaries and uterus. Dogs that have not been spayed will continue to have heat cycles, and therefore bleed once or twice a year for their entire lives unless they are pregnant or get spayed. Some dog owners may not realize how often their unspayed dog goes through a heat cycle. If you have an unspay female dog there are some risks you should be aware of. Mammary cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, pyometra, and pregnancy are all things that can happen to a dog who has not been neutered. Your veterinary doctor will recommend that you have your dog spayed . .
