I have a jack russell pup and she's around six or seven months old I think. Around two weeks ago I noticed half the dogs from my town were hanging around my back garden, after this I seen the blood spots, so it's safe to say she was in heat. I keep her outside most of the time so I can't say for sure whether or not one of the male dogs got to her before I did. What are the general signs of a dog who's in pup?
I've read a lot online about this, most people say dogs in their first heat shouldn't have pups as it's very dangerous for them. I've also read about emergency spraying, how long into the pregnancy can i get this done and how much does it cost? Also if anyone has had dogs who've had pups in their first heat, how did it go?
Either way I'll have to take her to vet now just to be safe, but I'm just curious.
