I have a 9.5 year old beautiful mutt. She is a black lab, irish setter, and german shepard mix. She is coming in to heat again and this time seems to be really hard for her. I spent last night up with her. She will howl and whimper in pain. I do not understand why. I can see her stomach tighten. Our vet in noting till after the new year and I just do not know what to do. Is it doggy PMS? She has never had puppies. I don't think that eitherone of us can go through another night like this. Can someone tell me what is wrong with her and what can I do to ease her pain.

Maybe a hot towel on her tummy and back. Or a heating pad to lay on. And rubbing her tummy and back. It may not be because she is in heat it might be something else other then she being in heat. You may need to get her checked out by another vet perhaps one your vets office recommends in his absence. I hope she gets better soon. I hope you don't have another night like last night.

This might help but as a former vet teck you should get her to a vet somewhere. She could be bleeding internally. You never know, she is a older dog. I do not think it is PMS. Hope she is better soon.

I think as you. The towel will go with certainty to diminish pain. But it very does not delay to look another veterinarian, therefore another opniĆ£o always is well coming.

I have no idea. I never had this problem thank you God. I would suggest trying to get roz to pray for her. It worked for his little pooch he exploits in his avatar. Now he is a changed man, claims he found the Lord.

I do not know what to make. He would not recommend something very bad, therefore one is about a life. One another veterinarian tries to take it it, therefore thus you will have other options and will be able to know to choose what he is better for you and for its dog.

You need to find a Vet that is open for emergency hours or at least one that will call you back so you can explain what is going on with your dog. It could be anything, a tumor, cancer, etc. You need to have the dog checked. In the meantime, a warm heating pad should provide some comfort.

I believe you should get her to a vet. At least call around and ask some opinions. Most places have 24 hour emergency vet clinics. And as soon as you are able get her fixed. You do not have to go to a reg. vet for spaying. Most cities have a spay/neuter clinics. A whole lot cheaper. My city also has a fund for people who can not afford the full price. Just fill out a form and charges are reduces. Got cats spayed/neutered for $ 10.00 But before that, call the vets.

Yes i agree you should get the dog to a vet, it doesn't sound like anything to do with being on heat. something else is wrong with her. get it checked out i'am sure at least one vet is on call during the holidays.

You need to get that dog to a vet ASAP! She is not in heat,there is something ELSE wrong with her! MY dog was just in heat and she didn't act like THAT! Let us know what happens..... God bless her and you, N.

Is there a reason why she isn't fixed? You say she's never had puppies, so she isn't a breeder. I don't know if there is any age limits to spaying, but it would take care of this unnecessary pain she is going through.

Hey Hazy. I also have a mutt like yours, at home! Mom takes care of him!! I checked some vets near you, There are about 8 of them, a little far from you but you should be able to at least get phone support. If your vet is not, .Jaxtheimer Judith Vmd 814-259-3828, she is closer to you. Hope your doggie get well. Good luck to both of you. http://ylwbook.addresses.com/ypbook.php?ReportType=44&aid=&sid=&refer=1271&adword=ADDR&qbn=&qbc=vet&qc=three%20springs&qs=pa&sid=97
