Good Day Chris,

I have observed that the female dog next door is on heat and there is a group of males by the neighbour's gate frantically trying to access her with no luck. The female has also grown very agitated and restless. I know that with human beings post ovulation come menstruation.

What happens with animals in this case because it seems they will not be able to mate during this phase. What becomes of the female and her readiness to reproduce?
 
Regards

What do you think?

"http://spayandneuter.50megs.com/f-spay.html
Ferrets have a long season which can last four to six months. But you wouldn't have to deal with it that long, because a prolonged heat of over a month will almost surely kill a female ferret without imediate medical attention.
Ferrets come out of heat by ovulating, and they only ovulate when they're either bred, or exposed to the chemicals breeding them releases.(a 'jill jab', a hormone needle)
Your female ferret may contract a desease through her weakened immune system, or a bacterial infection in her vaginal region, or she may become anemic from the constand blood flow to her uterus and vagina. Any way you slice it, a ferret in heat is a ferret in trouble."



Hooly dooly.. that is rough.


Bitches just mensturate and it drips out and then they get on with life...
