The stray pup/dog adopted us in July this year. Vet #1 said it was a year old, may or may not be spayed. Vet #2 said she is 6mos to a year old, and see this scar? 99% certain she's fixed. Um, NOPE. Today the signs are unmistakable. It's only a matter of hours before every dog in the county shows up. SHEESH. Question. What could cause a scar just like that? What could cause a female dog to have heat symptoms if she has been fixed? The vets are closed for the holidays, I'm not taking her to the emergency services for merely going into heat. She is guessed at being part Rottie, part Beagle...or whatever is long, heavy body, low short legs. Looks kinda goofy with a Rotti face, but only about 50 lbs. Hasn't really grown since we got her, just put on some weight from being a bit thin. arhgh. Short leash and a big stick, huh, until next week when I can get her to the vet.
