She might be having silent heats, but I would get her checked over by the vets, although I will say that I feel that as you say she is almost seven that is too old to breed from her again, but if you are concerned that she hasn't come into season I would get her to the vets.

They can have "silent" heats....ask your vet about having her hormone levels tested

haha chaz and I posted same time!!


I agree seven is a bit old to breed, you are asking for a c-section with that one.

Oh lord yes 7 is a bit old...many complications for both mom and pups occur at older ages.

As for the heat I agree it could be a "silent" heat, my dog growing up would have those a lot.

Yes I recently found out about this. My lab golden mix is 1yr 7mo and I thought that she just couldnt have pups. So didnt worrie about getting her fixed. I said something to the vet a week ago when I got her shots up to date. thats when I found out she was having silent heat and that she has greater chance of infection then those who have normal heat. And low and behold, 2 days later I come outside to bring her in since she whined all evening to go out and I finally just put her on her chain for the night and she is having normal heat. We are wondering if she had a guy in waiting over night. I hope not.

I can almost guarantee your dog is now pregnant...if you get her to the vet they can do an emergency spay...

why didn't you keep her inside??
