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

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
