Default Chi heat cycle

Hi all,

I am after some information regarding the heat cycle. Millie came on her first heat (4 days before her vet appointment to be sterilised) and I am wondering if you can tell me the stages of the cycle and how long they last.

I have looked on the internet, but the only info I can find is pertaining to breeding (which I am not interested in).

She has stopped bleeding now, but my other dogs (both sterilised males) are crazy about her at the moment (she seems to be making the most of it - lol) and I am waiting for it to be over so that I can make a new appointment.

Thanks in advance....

A heat cycle lasts 3 weeks to a month. Starts with bleeding for a week or so. Then a lot of swelling and she is receptive at this point for about a week, then bleeding again until it gradually tapers off at about 3 weeks to a month. Talk to your vets but most of them want the swelling to be completely gone before they spay to reduce the risks, so make your appointment for a spay about 2 months after the heat is finished.
