Hi all,

Does anyone know the average age for 1st season? Lexi is my 1st bitch & I'm not sure if I can do anything to help her or what symptoms she will get?

I've read so much about spaying, some sites say to spay in middle of cycle after 1st season & some say before the 1st season.. My vet said in the middle too. Is this the "norm"?

Thanks x

it differs from bitch to bitch, I think it is between 6-18months.
Some vets like to spay before their first season and some prefer to do 3 months after their first.
Bitches can get a bit narky when they are coming into and during their season, but some cannot react at all, just depends on the dog.

Our vets have always recommended spaying after the first season, if you do it before it can lead to incontinence issues later in life. Our late Ruby had a split season - the start of it at 6 months. Sadie is 9 months and hasnt shown any signs yet. ''flowers''

Our bitch was spayed after her first season but became incontinent immediately and spent her life on propalin. I read on the Internet the other day that this was quite common when bitches are spayed at such a young age. Worth reading up on!

Cassie had her first season about 8/9 months old but got a phantom pregnancy and having being a first time dog owner I didn't know what to expect or what to really look for so it took me about 3 months to get her right and she was spayed at 14 months, she did get an infection after the spay but meds cleared that up and didn't have any after effects relating to the spay, luckily MaggieGif

My little girl, Roxie, had her first season at 11 months. It was really bad and she lost a lot of blood and was really miserable, so she ended up on iron tablets! The vet recommended spaying her, which we diid, but she became incontinent and ended up on incurin for the rest of her life.
