If you don’t mind cleaning up after her, she doesn’t have to wear a diaper. She’ll eat when she’s hungry, lots of girls go off their food a bit during this time.I never had a female holden before. My golden is 9 months old and experiencing her first heat. We are in our fifth day when she just started bleeding a little. My question is do you recommend using diapers? I bought some but she eats everything so I’m not sure she would like having them on. Also her appetite is weak. Do you have any recommendations for her care during this first heat. I plan on getting her neutered at 12 months based on the advice of her vet. Thanks so much!
Importantly, she is not done with her heat when she stops bleeding. No dog parks, group meets, etc for 21 days. After her heat, keep an eye out for lethargy, possibly pustulous vaginal discharge, etc.
