My poor puppy, she hasn’t been acting quite like herself this week. I’m not sure what’s wrong with her either.
She’s in heat and perhaps that’s all that’s wrong, but she’s never acted quite the way she’s acting. She went into heat about two weeks ago, and about a week ago she started getting whinny and she’s not usually a whinny dog. She’d just start whining for no apparent reason.
She doesn’t seem to be in pain and she’s eating and acting fairly normal overall … she just whines a lot more than she usually does and sometimes when we get up to go out and it’s a situation where she’d usually be excited or begging to go out with us she just lies on the floor or couch looking at us … totally not normally. It just makes me think something’s a little off … I wish there were a Medicare plan for dogs as I’d simply just bring her into the vet for a check up … but without a clear sign or a really strong gut feeling that she’s ill I think I’ll hold off on the vet visit for now.
Have you ever cared for a female dog that’s in heat? Does any of this behavior sound familiar?
It’s “winning” not whining Midnight – get it right! LOL
