Jack russell is on her period.

by Laura Bacigalupi
(Reno, NV)

my dog approx. a year old, started her period, with all the usual symptoms, swelling of privates, licking before hand and bleeding. Today is the first day of visible bleeding, I noticed that when I took her out today to go to the bathroom, it seems like she isn't urinating. Normally she goes right away but today she didn't so I left her in the yard and came back for her about 15 minutes later. So I'm not sure if she urinated. Is it normal for a a dog on her period to do this?

Jack in heat peeing
by: Brenda

Its not uncommon. A lot of times when females are in heat they pee in little bits all over the place to let the males know they are "available".
