First Heat Cycle
by BroncoK on 08 December 2011 - 18:24
My German Shepherd is nine months, this is her first heat cycle (and only one, getting fixed in two weeks), she has no appetite and is vommitting. Is this normal?!
I called our local vet and they had never heard of a female vomitting before or having a low appetite while in heat and said if it continued to bring her in, but I thought I would see if anyone else has had this experience?

|Vomiting is not part of a heat cycle, loss of appetite yes but no vomiting.|

i have heard of females going off of there feed while in heat , and the only time i know of the female to vomit is after they eat grass, this is from the hormones, and yes some will do this.

|No, females don't do this while in heat; how is her poop? Maybe she swallowed something,when they do,they won't eat and will vomit. Give her a couple of slices of white bread moisten with olive oil ( will act as a sponge and help pass through whatever is in the intestinal tract ) . If she is not alert, has diarrhea, take her in right away. Good luck.|

|I haven’t noticed anything with her poop. She is still alert but doesn’t want to play with her toys. She was though, VERY interested in my sons chicken sand which so we gave her some chicken to eat. She hasn’t thrown it up yet. Pretty mopy, and has been lying around all day. Our vet said that that would be normal.|
Trixx, thank you for the input, I think that we will wait about a month to get her fixed to let things even out. We hadn’t made an appointment yet. Our vet recommended she get fixed right away. I think I will do more research too. :D
We will try the bread in Olive Oil and see if it helps. Poor girl. Thanks for the advice guys!
