Pup in heat?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, rookie pup owner. I have a 10 month old black lab female and am wondering if she is going into heat. She seems the right age or even a little old. She has started urinating very frequently (4 times on an hour walk) and she suddenly cant hold it over 4 hours in her outdoor kennel. I have noticed a creamy discharge but not bloody like what I have read says. I have read that urination increases which is why I am wondering. The last thing is that she has a slight odor to her lately.

What do you think, if it isnt heat then the frequent urination has me concerned. Other than what I have mentioned she is no different, full of energy, good apetite, and her normal self.

i'm no expert on this!!, but have owned a number of pups.

could be a urinary infection. don't wait too long as if the urine is creamy (pus) and smells it could be advanced and cause some damage. you could take a sample when she urinates and take to vet for tests. just hold container in line to catch when she goes. most don't seem to mind. remember i'm no expert and could be barking up the wrong tree. i've had dogs with urinary infections.

I agree..I would guess that the discharge could be linked to a possible UTI...it could be a simple bacterial infection or in advanced cases it could be stones..does she strain at all when urinating? that is a common sign of a UTI

The discharge has dissapeared she just pees steady now, even in her outdoor kennel. We hunted for 2 hours tonight and she peed 8 times. Gonna give the vet a call.. We got our two birds though grin.gif

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
